a man or woman of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his or her brave deeds and noble qualities. Born to fight, trained to kill, ready to die but never will. Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They're aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They've got really short hair and they always go for the throat.
RAdm. "Jay" R. Stark, USN; 10 November
The people of creed and class,
Of every country and clime
Have paid their respects to the Stars and Stripes
At one or another time;
At times they raise trouble among themselves,
And some one must intervene
Then the best man to send, so the President says
Is a United States Marine.
—Pvt C. Hundertmark, “Recruiter’s Bulletin,” April 1915
The USMC is over 222 years of romping, stomping, hell, death and destruction. The finest fighting machine the world has ever seen. We were born in a bomb crater, our Mother was an M-16, and our Father was the Devil. Each moment that I live is an additional threat upon your life. I am a rough looking, roving soldier of the sea. I am cocky, self-centered, overbearing, and 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, feasting on anti-Americans throughout the globe. Whenever it may arise, and when my time comes, I will die a glorious death on the battlefield, giving my life for Mom, the Corps, and the American Flag. We stole the eagle from the Air Force, the anchor from the Navy, and the rope from the Army. On the 7th day, while God rested, we over-ran his perimeter and stole the globe, and we've been running the show ever since. We live like soldiers and talk like sailors and slap the Hell out of both of them. Soldier by day, lover by night, drunkard by choice,
MARINE BY GOD!!! OORAH!!!
Every waking day of a U.S. Marine.
No better friend, no worse enemy.
The Marine kindly shook a child's hand in the morning and kicked major insurgent ass at night.
The baddest mother fuckers available, will kill any OPFOR without question.this dumbass runnin his mouth about the Corps doesent know shit, considering you need to graduate high school to join the Marines and air force, while the bitch ass army will take any retarded drop out.
That Marine over there will straight fuck you up if you decide to run your mouth
A Person trained for 13 weeks to be better than anyone believed they could. A Person with the Courage, Honor, and Commitment of 10 people. A Person who is Always Faithful to thier country. A person trained with the jobs of 4 average soilders. A Person willing to give thier life for liberty. A Person who can salute the American flag after haveing both legs blown off for it. But most important a person able to kill anyone and anything who stands against them. A Person who no longer can be called a person but rather a Leather-Neck, a TWC (Terrorist Welcomeing Commitee), or Devil-Dog.
Army:"One Marine just took out 27 insurgents by himself after loseing both legs and 3 fingers!"
Navy:"Your pretty cute for someone who spends so much time on land ;)"
AirForce:"Anybody wanna ride outta here?"
The few, the proud.
People who aren't paid to think but to do.
The worst recruiting hours known to man.
In old sailing days, the guys who used to jump across ships and takeover another vessel.
Trained extremely better than the Army... (Look at the casualties of Iraq).
Victims of reindeer games on ships via the hard working sailor, (the sad thing is, they fall for it everytime).
Muscles Are Required Intelligence Not Essential
My Ass Rides In Navy Equipment
That marine just ran through a minefield!!! He wasn't paid to think.
A proud member of the finest fighting force in the world. One who is able to laugh off the stupid and weak members of other forces who use misspelled words in their definitions, because he knows that while you're sitting at your keyboard trying to learn how to spell, he's showing your girlfriend/wife what it's like to be with a real military man...
"You're a Marine? Thank God. I'm glad you didn't say Navy. My husband is in the Navy and all he talks about is having sex with other men. Can we go to your place?"
The Most fucking badass soldiers in the world!!!
Hooah!,Jarhead, Leathernecks, Devil Dogs=Marine
