    "The newspaper noted that other Marines in Echo Company made what were described as sexist jokes when Hierl arrived, adding that the jokes have subsided as training continued."

    I've seen female TBS students in Ramer gym at Camp Barrett. Believe me, many are not to be messed with. Lt Hierl will do just fine.

    Come on Doc. You have lived with these guys. They may not be saying anything publicly but you know the jokes and comments continue. That is a whole other issue and not applicable to this thread just wanted to call thing the way they are. The quote you shared rounds out the article nicely but doesn’t portray reality.
