Marine Corps Leadership Traits

The 14 leadership traits are qualities of thought and action which, if demonstrated in daily activities, help Marines earn the respect,
confidence, and loyal cooperation of other Marines. It is extremely important that you understand the meaning of each leadership trait and
how to develop it, so you know what goals to set as you work to become a good leader and a good follower.

Definition: Justice is defined as the practice
of being fair and consistent. A just person gives consideration to each

Definition: Dependability means that you can be
relied upon to perform your duties properly. It means that you can be
trusted to complete a job. It is the willing and voluntary support of
the policies and orders of the chain of command. Dependability also
means consistently putting forth your best effort in an attempt to
achieve the highest standards of performance.

Suggestions for Improvement: You can increase
your dependability by forming the habit of being where you're supposed
to be on time, by not making excuses and by carrying out every task to
the best of your ability regardless of whether you like it or agree with

strength to stand up for what is right and to accept blame when
something is your fault. Physical courage means that you can continue to

them until you can control your reaction.

Definition: Knowledge is the understanding of a

that you understand people. Your knowledge should be broad, and in

Increase your knowledge by remaining alert. Listen, observe, and find
out about things you don't understand. Study field manuals and other
military literature.

Definition: Loyalty means that you are devoted
to your country, the Corps, and to your seniors, peers, and
subordinates. The motto of our Corps is Semper Fidelis!, (Always
Faithful). You owe unwavering loyalty up and down the chain of command,
to seniors, subordinates, and peers.

Suggestions for Improvement: To improve your
loyalty you should show your loyalty by never discussing the problems of
the Marine Corps or your unit with outsiders. Never talk about seniors
unfavorably in front of your subordinates. Once a decision is made and
the order is given to execute it, carry out that order willingly as if
it were your own.

Definition: Endurance is the mental and
physical stamina that is measured by your ability to withstand pain,
fatigue, stress, and hardship. For example, enduring pain during a
conditioning march in order to improve stamina is crucial in the
development of leadership.

Suggestions for Improvement: Develop your
endurance by engaging in physical training that will strengthen your
body. Finish every task to the best of your ability by forcing yourself
to continue when you are physically tired and your mind is sluggish.

Because it is important to always be able to remember the basic
leadership traits, the acronym "J.J. DID TIE BUCKLE" is used. Each
letter in the acronym corresponds to the first letter of one of the
traits. By remembering the acronym, you will be better able to recall
the traits.

I really and appreciate this, Man. I didn't tell you about how close I was to signing up for the Marines once when I was younger to help pay for my student loans.

I'm always wondering if I would have been a good Marine.

One thing that wasn't appreciated in the Marines, was people who joined up just for college benefits. There are other branches which supposedly had better benefits, more-so the Air Force, then the Navy, then the Army, then the Marines - from what I know.

Here's a story about a guy who had went to recruiters for the Army, Navy, and Air Force, he asked all of them what those branches had to offer him, and they each told him all of the benefits in being in each of those branches. He then went to the Marine Recruiter to ask him what the Marine Corps had to offer him, but the Marine Recruiter replied "Wrong question. What do you have to offer the Marine Corps?" Needless to say, that guy joined the Marine Corps.

There are many different factors which determine how good of a Marine someone could be. For example, having these traits listed here help a lot. Also, knowing about your occupation and how to do it well helps a lot too. And of course, in the Marines, it seems not so much how good the individual Marine is, but rather how well the unit as a whole works together. The importance of team work is heavily emphasized. What you lack in, the other Marines are there to either help you become better at it - or use their strengths to back up your weaknesses.

People who join the Marines usually pick that branch over the other branches because they want something harder than what is necessary, something more obsessed with combat, unleashing our inner Warrior, and once unleashed it never goes away. A perpetual willingness to fight evil with every ounce of effort and more. The suffering, the strictness, the brotherhood, being elite.

Don't get me wrong - I respect the other branches of the service as well. They're all the best at what they do - each in their own different ways.

Honestly, I do believe that you Geist would have made a great Marine. You seem to have a very good sense of understanding the Spirit of Camaraderie. You seem to care very much about your fellow superheroes like a family the same way Marines do. You're not really judgmental, so I think that if there was a Marine struggling with something, that you would be the first guy looking to help them out, so therefore if there was ever anything holding you back from what you feel would make you a good Marine, there would be others seeking to help you out as well. The morale of a unit is very important, that's what keeps them motivated to keep doing things right. When Marines get to know each other, they get in to conversations and get along with each other and are friends. But when they suffer together in some way, be it through going through rough training together in Boot Camp like in the same Platoon, or by being on a dangerous mission together, things like that, they become very close. But, the understanding that they have went through the same things you've been through, that most people haven't been through and could never understand, also keeps that sense of camaraderie there.

Having that Camaraderie there is what helps everyone function together at their best.
