I went through squad leaders school ... of all things there was a clerk in the class. He had worn out 3 full issues of charlies but still had his boot issue cammies. Had no freakin idea how to pack a pack or even how to carry one. Never rode a helo or an am-trac. Also the unit he was with had a waiver for NBC qual, Rifle qual and Swim qual. Nuff said

Why would you want special recognition for being in an 03 MOS? In the Marine Corps additional achievements are recognized by having a skill that separates you above others. Not to be condescending but an 03 requires the lowest line score that an MOS in the Marine Corps has to offer. Dont think that I believe only the lowest scoring Marines join the infantry, but that is the only requirement. Has anyone ever failed ITB and been sent to another MOS? I think this feeling of being recognized is only shared by a few members of the 03 community. When I was walking around with an HK-416 in civvies most of the 03 guys wanted to know who I was. Just from pogs prospective though.

No I never said that. I just said I have more than one pair of cammies.
Anyways. As I told my SSgt before. If it ever gets to the point that I am ridding in a trac/boat/whatever to assault an area, because all the grunts are gone, then we have clearly been ****ed up by whomever we are fighting. You may even say we have all but lost.
My job is to get the grunts commanders internet. If they use it for tracking the enemy or sending email, I don't ****ing know.
I do know however, that I get paid just the same, get the same discounts out in town, and get to watch the play-by-play of the Panthers games, assuming I don't have a strong enough connection to stream it.
I'm pretty sure that Charlie Sheen would call that WINNING!

The old woodlands had a built in patch on the knees. If you ripped your knee, mama san would cut the hole into a neat square then stitch down the edges. Still serviceable. Rip a hole in that one and she would take a piece of a discarded blouse and stitch that down on top. Still serviceable. I've seen grunts that most of their uniform was patchwork and at the same time pogues who look like they just stepped out of cash sales

Pre-cammie days.... you could always tell the new guys in country. Their utilities were as green as grass and you could still see creases in the trousers. You could tell a Pogue from a grunt by the condition of their utilities. Never met a grunt who didn't have patches or various locations stitched closed on their utilities.
When the grunts hit Da Nang or Chu Lai, they were the guys who caught hell from some butterbar because they looked like crap, smelled like crap, and were in dire need of a shave. But they were also the guys who the rest of us financed their drinking until they went out again.
A Marine is a Marine. Everyone's job is different but we were brothers who took care of each other. We didn't need something special to tell people apart.... you could see the difference in the grunts eyes.
I am not particularly brave, courageous, nor even very smart. But I am a US Marine which makes up for all my other failings. - DrZ

DrZ is the internet name I selected in the early days at University. So keep in mind I never was a DevilDoc.

I think you guys should all just line up and pull out your d!cks and we can measure them and move on already. Look, no one can take away from the grunts or what you guys do...GOD bless every one of you and thanks for doing what you do every day. But you arent going anywhere without the motorpool guys keeping your trucks and humvees going and you arent shooting **** without us 2111's making sure your firearms are good to go and properly maintenanced. Everyone in the Corps has a job and it all comes together like a well oiled machine. You can call that dude a POG or Pogue all you want but I loved the POG in payroll thats for sure. If you dont think his/her job was/is important just look at your LES every 2 weeks. If it werent for those people you wouldnt get your combat pay or your leave. It all comes together in the end, like it or not.
