I've told this in a hundred different ways. When you send in the Marines, you have sent the United States of America.

Marines know this. They don't work at backing that up, they back that up. We did go backwards at the Chosin, but the President made us do it. Otherwise, we would have stayed, I have no doubt. That would have been expensive, but we would have, trust me. Hitler had nothing on a Marine battalion commander when it comes to the no retreat rule.

No way I'm going backwards. No way my men are. We all know this. We di di mao a position, but we are not moving from that fight and line. No way. We are not girls. We are not REMFS. We are not doggies. We are Marines. We hold a line, period. (Apologize Wade, that's how we roll- nothing wrong per se with the Army - I'm just telling you what motivates, and by the time any soldier sees us, we are raggedy and the fight is over)

You send in the Marines you have sent the Navy and Air Force also. We will bring all that ordnance to bear. Marine aviators do not fly jets or helicopters, for example. (Also, ask a Navy man if HE could have been a Marine Aviator) They fly "ordnance platforms" - ask one if you ever meet one. I guarantee it will be the Marines that strike back when this PC pussy country gets nailed by the latest Islamist threat. Your squid SEALS can't bring any substantive firepower to the fight, as an example. Even this dumbass President wouldn't put the Army in before the Marines un-f*cked it first. Your country sent the SEALS to get Osama Bin Laden. They came quite close to f*cking that mission up, with a budget much larger than the entire Marine Corps. Can you believe they crashed and burned one of their fantsy schmantzy choppers going in? I'll never understand why these squids don't leave the killing business to us pros. I know the answer, and it's recruiting 17 year olds that think they are going to be SEALS, but wind up on some awful base schleppin' Navy shit around. It's a very effective recruiting tool. All those 17 year olds are going to be heroes, and mom and dad don't have to hear that the kid is going into the Marines. There is nothing more depressing than a Naval base, imo, and 99.99% wind up there, or on some ship as a paint-scraper. I assure you that you will get your war and chances for heroism in the Marines. Rare one does not, in the infantry, over 75% go there. and you will be that "hero". Good luck with that.

Very stubborn bunch, the Marines. You'd have liked being one...to most, in the past tense. I did, and I remain proud. It was not easy work. You go be one, then get back to me on it. Otherwise, I have to be impressed in other ways, if you have a story you want to tell to me. Just sayin'.

For a Marine's attitude and beliefs, I agree with you dfosterf, but you are a bit over the top on some of those comments Marine.

There is no need to put down the Navy SEALS. You would be hard pressed to find tougher guys one-on-one or the likes of the Army Spec operators or the Airborne guys.
I’ve been out after tangos with all of them and they have my deepest respect.
I am chosen by many but taken by no one.

Gilligan that is Gunny being the Jarhead he is. The world begins and ends with his Devil Dogs. We let him grunt for a while then he takes a nap.

They have my deepest respect, also, but, as Wayne mentioned, I like to bitch. Not talking and I am all about my Corps. Hell, even Wayne gives me a pass, along with an explanation to you- and his son served very honorably in Afghanistan, as - (God forbid!) a doggie. He absolutely knows I mean nothing by it, respect very much his son's service, and sweated with him when his son was there.

Some of my best friends are squid-assed SEALS. Friggin' over-indulged, hyped, ridiculously TO&E'd asset -sucking prima-donna's that they are. Don't get bent out of shape about my comments, I assure you they do not, nor do I at the crap they give me. I'm taking a nap now, lol

Ha!

You remind me of a crusty old Marine Gunner that I ran into one time.
Everything was “my Corps” this and “my Corps” that.
Not our Corps, it strictly belonged to him. Lived, ate and breathed the Corps
Kind of a crazy old coot, but a good Marine.

And what is with zero2cool's comment about "editing"?

I drive him nuts with that. Apparently, he gets e-mail and such every time I edit or some such. FYI, I am a crusty old Gunner, not Gunny, notwithstanding the assignment by my fellow posters. They all know that, btw. If you hang around, it will be "our" Corps, that's a promise.

Gilligan, Sir!

After you post something if you want to add to it or correct the spelling or something click the edit button. Some boards only let you edit for 15 min or so. Zero (Kevin) lets us come back anytime and change our post.

Some people are slow thinkers and they come back and "improve" their original post. I am always correct my spelling or syntax. GUNNY I mean dfoster may change his 6 times in 10 minutes. It's cool but is fun to give him some flack about it. he don't mind.

Edit- I just did it to add the photo.
wpr attached the following image(s):

My profundity may take a little while, and I readily admit the criticism is warranted from the perspective of all the tekkie's that have to revisit a thread simply because I came to my senses, as I see them, but a jarhead should be the 1st to give me a waiver, as I was shot in the friggin' head as a semi- lad. My biggest critics haven't so much as been in a really serious fist-fight since middle school. Just sayin'...Face. Palm.


I diss many in GENERALITIES, mostly in tongue-in-cheek humor- that serve. I defend ALL that do, individually. (Sorry, Kev, an edit)

Let's review. 3 marriages, all with kids, less time on this continent than on board a ship during my adult life- and the places those boats sent me- crazy people telling me what to do, did it, and new crazy people telling me that what I did was wrong. I howl at the moon, in here. Ultimately, who cares?

You got it. I'm crazy, and I like to share. Laughing
