A Marine and his abilities

A lone voice over a sand dune in Iraq shouted 1 Marine can kill a Platoon of Iraqi soldiers.

Saddam waived his hand and a platoon rushed over the dune and a firefight insued. After a moment of silence the same voice shouted 1 Marine can kill a Battalion of Iraqi soldiers.

Saddam waived his hand and a Battalion of soldiers rushed over the dune to a fierce firefight that raged on toward 30 minutes then silence. The loan voice stated 1 Marine can kill a Brigade of Iraqi Soldiers.

Saddam waived his hand and a Brigade of Iraqi Soldiers rushed over the dune to a battle that lasted over 2 hours then 1 Iraqi Soldier crawled back over the hill and said stop...its a trap....there's 2 of em.

The Ranger's probably got it from the Marines.

It's been a Marine thing for as long as I can remember, and I'm pretty old.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

True story...
During the Katrina response, I was suddenly thrust in front of a whole gymnasium full of rag-tag strom refugees with the task of rapidly organizing them into a functioning shelter unit.
Realizing that there was a true cross-section of the indigenous population huddling there, I simply raised the bullhorn and asked if there were any Marines in the house... (once a Marine, always a Marine).
About a dozen men and a couple of women made their way to the front... representing all ages. With the security of the building and the soon-to-be-arriving scarce supplies thus assurred; I then asked for any other service members, active or retired to come forward.
From that point on, the task of creating order out of chaos went smoothly.
If you are an active or retired service member, you know why.
Thank you for your service ...and for the wealth of knowledge, skills and abilities you bring to the table anytime the hubris makes sudden contact with the oscillating pneumatic appliance.

We enjoy freedom only because many brave men and women died to secure it !

Always loved seeing the Marines arrive so I could stop eating snakes and bugs and go back to hot meals and a cot !!!

May God Bless us all and may we all support our troops !
