in a different uniform and you're in a different phase of your life. There is no way I can describe to you all the difference.
When the time comes for his turn if I had to I would take him kicking and screaming all the way. The hero worship I see in my younger sons eyes for his Marine brother tells me I will have two Marines in the family, and I will be one very proud mother.
The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean.
They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense.
They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat.
I have only two men out of my company and 20 out of some other company.
We need support, but it is almost suicide to try to get it here as we are swept by machine gun fire and a constant barrage is on us.I have no one on my left and only a few on my right. My only answer as to why the Marines get the toughest jobs is because the average Leatherneck is a much better fighter.He has far more guts, courage, and better officers...These boys out here have a pride in the Marine Corps and will fight to the end no matter what the cost.Lying offshore, ready to act, the presence of ships and Marines sometimes means much more than just having air power or ship's fire, when it comes to deterring a crisis.And the ships and Marines may not have to do anything but lie offshore.
