One reader said he liked today's structure. Not me. I was an NCO as a corporal (E-3). Then they made all us corporals Acting Corporals to differentiate between L/Cpls and us. I'm sure I'm not alone....
I was a 2531. Started out in 81 mortars and went out with FO teams, so I spent most of my first couple of years with line companies in the 9th Marines. Back stateside, I was assigned to battalion...
It'll give you goose bumps.
You must have been in 1st or 2nd BN. I bet we marched near each other somewhere on the Island. I was in 377, 4th BN, one of the Nissen huts on Wake Blvd.
Get out your Kleenex. I worked this area for five years, covering all kinds of sports for the Atlanta paper. I didn't realize how great these people are.
GOD BLESS AMERICA AND ITS FIGHTING...
My oldest daughter called with a nice story today. She, her husband and middle son were at Fort Benning for the youngest son's Turning Blue ceremony--for Marines, that's when a soldier completes...
What a crock of sh*t. And it takes a M/GY SGT to give you all the information you can't use. Gunny, who can and who CANNOT get a CAC, whatever that is . . . and while he's waiting is that base order...

Credit goes to Maj. Anthony Milavic whose emails to fellow Marines set off BS Detectors across the country.
The Ramona, CA, Sentinel ran an earlier story telling of this this poser's so-called...
From what I'm reading, maybe it's true to some extent--at least in the chow hall--that today's Marines are candy as*es. Many a time overseas we preferred C-rations to what they served in the chow...
Omelets? You gotta be sh*tting me!
You want to complain, try green dehydrated eggs, 2 strips of soggy bacon, little rocks called potatoes and wet toast. That's what we had every day on Okinawa back...

It all goes back to the old saying, "I love the f**ing Marine Corps and the Marine Corps loves effing me."
No real problem here, though. It gives the troops something to ***** about and,...
Hard to let MD8724's remark pass.
The Japs killed many more innocents before we ended the war at Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Anyone remember the Bataan Death March, the sub-human confinement of...
I haven't read the feedback yet, but here's my take on it:
I'm an old--too damn old--southern white guy, just to let you know where this is coming from.
Now that you're enlightened, my take is why...

How do people get away with making up **** like this guy--Barron James Shortt--did?
If request mast doesn't work, he might have to see the IG. Won't make any points in his unit, but it looks like his unit has written him off . . . Semper FU
It's time for him to take care of himself...
Here's what I learned about that gesture:
It's a muslim greeting. Don't know how it would go over with guys returning from Iraq or Afghanistan.
Uyghur greetings are attached to...
As we know, every Marine has an opinion on EVERYTHING!!!!!
What is your opinion on this greeting to military that's going around: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MSfFYxSdKdo
Good to know they still call them seabags.
Brown Eyed Girl--makes me think about my baby every time I hear it even if she's sitting next to me.
Just One Look (was all it took)--ditto
I'm just a romantic SOB
I wonder if parachute infantry isn't a waste of good men. They take good men who are supposed to be elite, their units are seriously under-armed and their line of supply . . .?
The 101st Air...
I also agree with Old Marine . . . but that doesn't mean some NFL team MUST acquire him, and that's the rub.
He had issues besides lying about activities--the bong bottle at the airport; someone...
One of the things that stood out was the number of "fat chicks" in the ranks on that show.
I've been watching a show on The Military Channel about the army's paratrooper school at Fort Benning.
It starts with this Command Sgt Maj making a big show about getting motivated. "I know I'm...

Crotch sure has changed since I was in. It was Gunny and Top to us.
Of course, that was in the FMF, in my case the 9th and 1st Marines.
And, of course, all these MGYSGTS and GYSGTS probably...

Ever hear the term, "Raggedy Assed Marines." Check your history back to WWII, Guadalcanal.
The guys at 8th and I are paid to look and march pretty.
In the FMF we were paid to fight. I think...
