Thread: Remington Raider?

American History Forum puts on a WW2 seminar every year in Sarasota (Feb). It's always attended by a former Marine Raider (pre runner to recon) by the name of Ed Bearrs. He is the Historian Emeritus of the National Park Service. I believe he now lives in Virginia. He is a Civil War Historian for the most part but the man has more historical knowledge stored in his head than a library, from all eras. Contact me if you are interested in the seminar.

TheDualityOfMan I echo Marine84's post, this is the best site for comprehensive information on our Corps. Im sorry if I made you feel ridiculed or unwelcome because you are certainly welcome. Its just that your thread tickeled me. Please stick around and follow some of our finest young American patriots through their senior year of High School while in DEP and then achieve the proudest day of their life. If you read here long enough you will know and understand why we are a such tight family and why we are so proud.
No better friend/No worse enemy

Being the ONLY female that plays with these guys on a regular basis................
I think if the 1st Sgt thinks Recon is the finest of the finest, I'm sure they are but, if you ask the rest of us, we'll ALL tell you that OUR own MOS was the finest of the finest. Recons ARE pretty bad a$$ but it takes ALL of us to make that big Green Machine work.

One quote frequently found here should put you on the right track
US Marine: No better friend, No worse enemy.
Recon should have it's own chapter(s). They are the most thoroughly trained and tested and therefore the ideal, not intended to slight anyone. You're not getting answers because every Marine, in our own minds, no matter what the actual MOS we had, we believe we will prevail always. Don't overlook any of the characters who make up the Band of Brothers. I'd take any US Marine on my side anytime over anyone, without knowing anything else about them.
Good luck with your research...I might suggest enlisting in the reserves if you truly want to know the deal.

Wow that's all really great.
Don't worry, Jinelson, you didn't make my feel unwelcome! I just felt like a right ass for having asked such a dumb question!
It was cool you all laughed, I was hysterical at myself too! Haha! I'm gonna be spending about two or so years on research, and this is only the beginning.
I'm gonna keep using this site for information then, and I hope you guys can give me a hand learning about your corps.
I'm hear to listen to you all!!
God know I need to learn!! HAHA!!!
Chumley, that's all great!! KEEP IT COMING GUYS!!!

Well, okay if he's not writing a comic book.
Check out the YouTube clips of the Chef at Large guy and the US Marines.
Its in several parts, but Anthony Bourdain discovers many astute insights to the US Marines that helped evacuate him and many other civilians from Lebanon recently.

Thanks so much for that link, yellowwing!
And, hey, I dunno EXACTLY what I'm gonna write about yet but I could try get you name in somewhere!! Like as a Marines nickname or something.
I'd have to work that one into the story somehow. I'll let you know closer to the time!
That link was great though! Thanks for your help & support man.

Okay then, you were the greatest warrior to have served from 84-88!
It will make a fine comic serial. Much better than Sgt Rock!
