I reckon that they believe our enemies would treat them with love and respect if they were to be captured. If you cant take it here you cant take it there. What a bunch of Puss Cakes.

These people have not lived until they have been smacked with a 'Swagger Stick'! Maybe this is the reason that Marines are being used more in Iraq than are the Army units. The last four major operations against the insurgents have been conducted by Marines and Iraqis. These are the 'go to' guys when things have to be done.

Lord, it makes me feel better to have been a Marine. At least I know that they cared enough to make me ready for anything that may come my way! Even in combat, things were never as bad as were those first two weeks in PI Boot Camp. I was prepared!

Some of that lot need to come to the UK and find out what real Marines have to go through in training, no disrespect to you guys. I trained you US Navy Seals back in the 60s but was treated well by your country, I am more affiliated to Amerca than to Europe, kick ass and more ass and get rid of females in your corp, they have no place in the Marine Corp and most definatly not in Her Majesties Marine Corps. in Great BRITAIN, THEY WILL NEVER BE ACCEPTED.

All I can do anymore is shake my head in disbelief. Sure, there's a line between training and abuse, but it's certainly a lot further back than where the d*mn civilians wanna put it now...

I have to agree with my fellow service members on this one. Give the Army a hanky. This is not my step-fathers Army he loved for 20 years. I am sad to (I'm in another service-USCG) we are a little soft by comparasion as well. I was stationed in Cape May for a number of years, our training center, and was amazed by some of the stuff Company Commanders had to put up with. It showed up in the fleet. I am proud to say my son (3/7 Marine in 29 Palms) was raised to be in the front and kicking ass. Sorry to hear the Army has gone to less than favorable ways to help toughen up personnel. I agree that you do not want to abuse but getting their attention another thing.

In a way you can't blame these recruits for being disallusioned.

look at the way the tv commercials sell the army, "earn money for college", "an army of one" {love that one}, and the latest for the army reserve where they are trying to convince the parents- "it's good training, right?"

Marine advertisements on the other hand pretty much tell you right up front, "panty waist's need not apply".
