I grew up in Michigan and went to San Diego. That being said, NYNY was most likely PI and he's most likely FOS.

Some people live an entire lifetime and wonder if they have ever made a difference in the world, but the Marines don't have that problem.
~ Ronald Reagan
Now I recall the Recon Marines ragged, filthy cammie shirted young men in green paint who move silent like the fog with deadly purpose in their eyes. Swift, Silent, Deadly. I smile.
~ GYSGT Correll, USMC, Retired Recon Marine
A ship without Marines is like a garment without buttons.
~ Admiral David D. Porter, USN
There are only two kinds of people that understand Marine: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a secondhand opinion.
~ General William Thornson, U.S. Army
Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps will pay most of your share.
~ Ned Dolan
The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!
~ Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady of the United States, 1945
Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat.
~ RAdm. Jay R. Stark, USN, 10 November 1995
I love the Corps for those intangible possessions that cannot be issued: pride, honor, integrity, and being able to carry on the traditions for generations of warriors past.
~ Cpl. Jeff Sornig, USMC; in Navy Times, November 1994
You cannot exaggerate about the Marines. They are convinced to the point of arrogance, that they are the most ferocious fighters on earth, and the amusing thing about it is that they are.
~ Father Kevin Keaney, 1st Marine Division Chaplain, Korean War
The bended knee is not a tradition of our Corps.
~ Alexander A. Vandergrift, USMC
By their victory, the 3rd, 4th and 5th Marine Divisions and other units of the Fifth Amphibious Corps have made an accounting to their country which only history will be able to value fully. Among the Americans who served on Iwo Island, uncommon valor was a common virtue.
~ Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, U.S. Navy
Women Marines don't have a nickname, and they don't need one. They get their basic training in a Marine atmosphere, at a Marine Post. They inherit the traditions of the Marines. They are Marines.
~ Lt. Gen. Thomas Holcomb, USMC
The Marine Corps has just been called by the New York Times, "The elite of this country." I think it is the elite of the world.
~ Admiral William Halsey, U.S. Navy
I am convinced that there is no smarter, handier, or more adaptable body of troops in the world.
~ Sir Winston Churchill
The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle.
~ General John "Black Jack" Pershing, U.S. Army
Every Marine is, first and foremost, a rifleman. All other conditions are secondary.
~ General A. M. Gray, USMC
