Marine Corp: Accountability

Satisfactory Essays
Could you imagine the Marine corp where Marines were not held accountable for their actions? Where Marines could do whatever they wanted and not have to face the repercussions. I think its safe to say that the Marine Corp would be pretty chaotic. Marines have to be held accountable for their actions, It ensures mission completion, a high quality of work, and it makes you a better overall marine. With out accountability the quality of the Marine Corp would drastically decrease.

In the Marine Corp there is nothing more important than mission completion. We have to get the job done in any way possible, no matter the circumstances. With that in mind, if marines weren't being held accountable how would the job ever get done. With out accountability there is no way the command could keep track of delegated task and if it was done or not. In which would lead to unfinished task, poor communication, lack of discipline, and would also compromise unit readiness. Every job in the Marine corp is equally important because they all pertain to the overall mission. So there is no room for incomplete task, or poor communication, because it effects the organization as a whole. So holding marines accountable is essential to the overall mission of the Marine Corp.

Along with marines getting the job done, the quality of work also has to meet the standards of the marine corp. If the quality of work is not up to par and has to be re done, time and materials have now been wasted. Now the time you could be using to complete another task, is being used to redo something you could've taken care of the first time. Also more materials are being consumed than expected, which leads to having to spend money on more when it could be put to better use. It may not seem like its a big deal but when you look at the big picture in the long run it will add up. Marines are also taught to take pride in them selves and their work. The quality of work you do reflects on the quality of marine you
