What is a Marine?
The United States Marine Corps is over 220 years of death and destruction.
We are the finest fighting force this world has ever known. I was born
in a foxhole. My mother is Anger and my father is Pain. Each moment
that I live is a threat upon the life of my country's enemies.
I'm a rough-looking, tough-talking soldier of the sea. I'm cocky,
self centered, overbearing, and I do not know the meaning of fear, for
I am fear itself. I am a green amphibious monster made of blood and
guts, who arose from the sea to prey upon enemies across the globe.
I feed upon anti-Americanism whenever it may arise - my hate makes me
grow stronger. And when my time comes, I will die a glorious death on
the battlefield, giving my life for my God, my country and my Corps.
We live like soldiers, talk like sailors, and slap the shit out of
both. We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy
and the rope from the Army. On the seventh day, while God rested, we
overran His perimeter, "borrowed" the globe, and we've been running
the show ever since. Killer by day, lover by night, drunkard by choice..
. . .Marine By God!
Drop me a line if you'd like to let me know how I'm doing,
or just to shoot the breeze about the Corps.
