    Funny I had my best friend that was in with me down to hangout one time and while engaging in liquid operations this guy decided to spout off that he was not only a Marine, not only a Force Recon Marine but he apparently was in our platoon during the exact same time we were in...hmmmmm...I played it off as funny at first and let him hang himself cuz he had obviously done alot of research cuz if he hadn't picked exactly that, I would've believed him. In the end I told him to walk away while we are still smiling...lol

    Why people can't just be who they really are baffles me.I see men wearing tee shirts and baseball claiming they were Seals or Recon Marines.I will ask them a couple of questions and right away I can catch a phony.We all couldn't be Seals.Recon,or snipers.Some had to be cooks,mechanics,tankers,or cannon cockers.
    I was a sea going Marine,and a flame thrower man in the 1st battlion 8th Marines.I never fired a shot,and I rate the Good Conduct Medal,Armed Forces Expeditionary Medal,and the National Defense Medal.
    I was proud to serve my country as a United States Marine.I wasn't a hero,and I don't have any war stories to tell.I served in a combat zone,and got shot at a couple of times,and one of them was friendly fire.

    I Agree With You Dave. Iwas With 3/8from1985-1990 Which I Proudly Earned A Good Coduct Medal And My Fmf Ribbon And Acg Letter Of Commendation For Pre Deployment Dental Readiness. I Was A Gulf War Veteran Ididnt See Any Combat Action There Were A Few Scud Missles Thrown Our Way But The Patriots Took Care Of That. Anyway Iam A Proud Corpsman Who Was With The Worlds Finest And Served As Best As I Could To The Motto Semper Fi.

    as for identifying marks... a lot or recon marines get "the jack" on the inside of their bicep. does that make them unprofessional? or is it different because jacks tend to differ or its not an official symbol for recon?

    My son has a guy that was a Ranger working with him. Real arrogant prick. Son (who was born at a Navy hospital, but never served), asked him did he know that the Marines have equals to the Army Rangers too. The guy says no they don't and my son tells him, yeah sure they do, Marines just out of boot camp! LOL...the guy goes crazy, while ole Joey just laughs at him.

    'Doc, while I won't discount it out of hand, I will say that if I had a dollar for every 'shadoe warrior' I've run across, I'd be a rich man. I tend to take such stories with a LARGE grain of salt, as every single one of them thus far has turned out to be utter and complete horse puckey.

    I weep for what this country is becoming, and fear for my children and grandchildren's future if any more democrats gain national office. We lose more and more freedoms every single day to creeping nannystatism and those who vote for Democrats only want to increase that. Anyone voting for a 'dem' is someone who likely wants to take everything YOU have worked for and mortgage your kids future as well.

    Doc, not blaming or anything else my friend. These guys are typically VERY slick and have polished their stories for, sometimes years, and able to fool family, friends, government, etc.

    Again, I'm not at all saying he's a liar or anything else...I just tend to discount the stories of super recon killers who have higher clearances than god himself and did secret missions behind the lines and killed by the score and got classified medals and can't really talk about this sort of thing because it's still classified etc etc (But somehow, it's not so classified that they can't tell YOU or everyone else).

    Then again I'm just jaded or perhaps a professional doubter LOL
