1st Battalion 6th Marines: Marjah Afghanistan

From the person that did ithe video:

Not your normal "Mot Video" but this video will make you think twice about the men and women in the Marine Corps. Against GySgt Wallgreens request I recorded his speach in secret..... the result is this awesome video with the last words we heard before boarding helos and heading into the heart of Marjeh. Have you ever wondered how Marines get pumped up? This video will show you how true leaders inspire their Marines to do the unthinkable.

Pumped up, its all those John Wayne movies. In Boot camp on the rifle range Wednesday before Friday which was Qualification day, we were suppose to go see "Sand of Iwo Jima", I don't remember what we did but that night we 'Field Dayed" the Squad bay.

That is the 6th Marine Regiment, they need no pep talks they got a history going all the way back.
When they got to Belleau Wood during Mouse-Argonne offense(?) WW 1 They opened up on the Germans from 800 yards, why wait til they get here. A French Captain was taking his unit to the rear and told the Marines they had better retreat, the Marine commander responded, " Retreat hell we just got here." After that fight the Marine Casualties were high, very high but they stopped the Germans.

Part of the legacy these young Marines have to live up to and they are not about to disappoint anybody.

As you may be able to tell by now I am biased, you bet.
