Ask a Marine what's so special about the Marines and the answer would be &quot;esprit de corps&quot;, an unhelpful French phrase that...

Great read, Semper Fidelis!!!!!!!!! When i visited Belleau Wood with my unit in 2004 they took us to the town that is just outside the battle field where there is a fountain this fountain is of a bulldog (devil dog) with water coming out of its mouth into a pool, if you look into that pool you will find 1000's of dog tags from Marines past and current Marines, you will find mine and my entire plt's in that pool. That in itself tells you a lot about Marines. If you ever get the chance to make it there and go to the battle grounds like I did ask the locals where the devil dog fountain is they will know.
