Thank you for making my day !

Two more favorites (one old and another new):

First and foremost a Marine is a rifleman.

"The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle."
-General of the Armies John J. Pershing.

"You're making the wrong assumption that a Marine by himself is outnumbered."
-Marine General Peter Pace.

Semper Fi.

The stars and stripes forever !

You realize that the only force on earth that can hinder or stop Marines are American politicians and Pentagon REMF's.

Thats what RLee was talking about when you get a new platoon of recruits they're all Gomers out there. It is up that Drill Instructor to make the change. Also to ensure that the ghost of some Marine does not come back some day and say, 'if only my training had been better.'

I revisited P.I. about 5 years ago now and it doesn't look like anything has changed. Except in 1963 there were wooden Barracks, but the grinder was still there, Drill Instructors were still in everybodies faces and that is good news. And I can tell you the old saying that you can't go home again, is wrong. I felt like I had never left. Yes, you can go home again.

Thanks to all of my Marine brothers, you guys are great, but we doggies are very capable and prove everyday that we can kick major ass.
