    Having been in the Marines, I find your last two pictures offensive. Don’t worry, as the sound you hear from above one of these days will be one of my beloved F/A-18’s delivering you a laser guided Christmas present. :p

  • Not a lot of people know, but the Marines are a department of the Navy.














    The Men's Department. :)

    In my "Intro to the Navy" at boot camp in San Diego, we learned that the Navy boot camp was separated from the Marine boot camp by a 12-foot fence.
    Our DI emphasized (rather loudly, too. Rather triggering) that even if you get homesick, etc you don't want to go over the fence, that the Navy was sure to get you back.
    After the Marines had you for 3 days.
    Which was NOT a good thing.

    Apparently the Marines aren't the hospitable cuddley bears that we've been lead to believe !

    Semper Fi you knuckleheads. :)

    My rifle is my friend. It is my life. I must master it as I must master my life.
