The following slight variations for the Marine Corps
seem to stem from the difference in guard chain of command
6. To receive, obey, and pass on to the sentry who relieves me all orders from the Commanding Officer
, Officer of the Day
, and Officer
s and Noncomissioned Officer
s of the Guard
9. To call the Corporal of the Guard
in any case not covered by instructions.
In addition, I learned these unofficial General Orders
from other bored Marines on post:
12. To walk my post from flank to flank
and to take no shit
from any rank.
13. To walk my post, 'round and 'round
, fuck this shit
, I'm sitting down.
