    This guy should have stayed in Harold Overstreet made 1st Sgt in 13 years and became the 12th Sgt Major of the Marine Corps. He was my company 1st Sgt back in the early 80's and I can't imagine seeing another Marine of his caliber. He was super squared away. S/F

    I'm not going to defend that guy because I don't know him and 14 yrs is a pretty quick 1stSgt, but not everybody that lived east of the Mississippi river went to Paris Island.
    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

    Very well put, I love our Marines, and it's true when they say Once a Marine always a Marine, you have every right to be proud, God Bless you, and Simper Fi., I have two Grandsons who are Marines, but they are out now and they still carry that pride with them, their stance the way they conduct themselves are amazing, They are still Marines in heart and spirit. Love them.
