OK! You went through T.A.P.S. or at the very least you were physically present; however, I’ve heard that the T.A.P.S. of long gone past is still the format of today. Ugh! OK, no program bashing in this post. I compare getting out of the Marines similar to planning for the vacation of a lifetime… When I’m going somewhere awesome, I can hardly contain myself. This has been evident when I show up on the beaches of Hawaii with no summer clothes OR when I jaunt to San Francisco and have no long sleeved shirts. My excitement took over and my sense left my brain. There are so many details during the process of getting out of the Corps; however, despite all of the planning, one can find themselves suit-less or sleeveless.
