I just got to the fleet and have noticed my peers ignoring what the fire team leaders and other lower enlisted in charge of them whenever they are given orders.

Perform orders from said peer above standard and set the example... let your peers know that an order coming from a peer in that position is still an order. Being a private in charge is one of the cruelest things to happen. No one will listen to him and sooner or later hes back in the mix with angry salty peers...ewww..... let that soldier learn how to be a private.

Depends on the person, aptitude, etc. but I don’t think that’s cruel, just a sharp learning curve.

I just don't believe its fair to that Soldier... Granted there are variables but in general its better to just let a private learn how to be a private and a Soldier first .. but then again christen by fire is a real thing

PFC (Join to see) Marines ignoring fire team leaders?

Stand out! Do not slide into that mode!

Sounds like GySgt business to me. Relax, Gunnery Sergeants always sort Marines out, those negligent peers will be called out. I have Faith in the Corps!

If this reaches beyond the Cpl level, hell should be paid.
