    Question Quick Question: What is going on here?

    I run into individuals once in a while, during my line of work, who claim to be Marines.

    I question them

    Me: what does Semper Fedelis mean?

    Response: I dont know?

    Moreover, I find it hard to believe that a retired Marine cannot re-sight their core motto. Am I missing something or am I right?

    So my question to you is... If you were NOT in the Marine Corps, who are you to question anyone if they were or weren't ?

    ((THAT'S spelled Semper Fidelis ))

    Moreover, I find it hard to believe that a retired Marine cannot re-sight (Recite )their core ( Corps ) perhaps ???motto.

    Maybe i can re-phrase that so you may understand.

    An enlistment in the MarineCorps doesn't mean
    when discharged that we are responsible to, or required to, give
    clear, honest answers to civilians..Police Officers, or even our
    own Mothers....
    We're not required to explain the elephant to the six blind men
    either...

    Marines are approachable , dont quiz us , or poze us, or riddle me this
    batman..

    you want to know something.....
    ASK.

    IF you ain't BT,DT, I may not care.
    but probibly won't bit your head off.

    No point in worrying about this bro, just for get about it. Besides no one likes being questioned about the Marine Corps from a poole to see if one was actually a Marine. So he was probably messing with you...

    Or maybe ... even worse... you might be just a troll MEISTER!
