  2. Improvised Detection Dog course

    Hello fellow Marines. I just had a question concerning the Improvised detection dog course (thus the title of this blog). My question is: "How exactly do you get flagged for the course?" I am an Infantrymen (0311), and during our current cycle, it seems like the higher ups just flagged some random junior marines from HQ for it, and they never really told my company about the course at all.

  5. Am I totally right feeling this way?

    Maybe I'm wrong, but the old saying "Once a Marine, always a Marine" should not be used to describe some who wore the Globe, Eagle and Anchor.
    For instance, I don't think Lee Harvey Oswald should be be in that category because of what he did on that November day in Dallas. And how about John Murtha who called our brave Marines "baby killers" and denounced their actions in Iraq? There are probably many more peole that should rightly be called "EX" marines and not ...
