Similar to other definitions listed, the Marines are truly kick-ass.

1. They are America's primary shock troopers. When the Army ducks their tails and runs... call in the Marines.

2. When you need a target assassinated there is no need to waste money on an expensive missile instead ask a Marine Scout Sniper to do it for free.

3. It is widely believed and accepted that when Marines die and go to heaven they are immediately recruited into God's personal bodyguard.
1. Guy 1: Hey did you see the Army retreat on CNN last night?
Guy 2: Yeah, but don't worry. Next time the Marines will kill 'em, and take back that land.

2. Dropping a missile on an intended target with possible collateral damage: $300,000 + an embarrassing story on CNN.
Equipping a Marine Scout Sniper with everything he needs and ensuring one clean shot through the target head: less than $500.
One less terrorist to fight against the U.S.A.: Priceless.

3. Marine 1: So you heard Mike was killed yesterday?
Marine 2: Yeah, but I'm not so sad about it. At least now he's protecting the Big Man upstairs.
Marine 1: Semper Fi to that!

MARINES: "Monkeys Are Ready If No-one Else Signs". Background: This was my response (quick thinking) After a Marine asked me (Army Green Beret) If I knew what ARMY stood for? I stated no and he replied: "Aint Ready for Marines Yet" This was only traditional jerking of each others chain, merely ragging on the others Branch of Military; in the end we all have a great deal of respect for all Branches of the Military and more importantly the choice to defend our Great Nation.
Hey Soldier do you know what Marines stand for? Yes Sir, Monkeys Are Ready If No-one Else Signs!

This is urban a more appropriate definition is in order. There are 2 types of Marines: There are the badass ones who do their job as it is expected of them, know this, and that is all. Then there appear to be Marines who act tough, when they really appear to be compensating for a lot of insecurity issues and are generally confused people. There is a place in society for these people and apparently it is the Marine Corps, or the really depends which recruiter you decided to believe. These joker types are Marines by title, but still will always be posers. These people are annoying to drink with as they always over-exaggerate every situation because their mothers didnt show them enough attention. Watch "Born on the 4th of July" and take in the confusion in that movie. Tom Cruise became paralyzed because of insecurities with losing a wrestling match to impress a girl. Similar scenarios appear to happen pretty often with confused young men being used by older wrinkly men...and lately women as well.
Young man: Im 18 and want to do big things, so I figure shooting strangers halfway around the world is how I will do it...oh yea...I can sign up for the Marines and do that.

Young man's friend: Um, well im going to college dude...bye.

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?"

A person who thinks that they are better than every one else, even though they are not.

Sailor: You do realize that we provide your medics, right?

Army: And that we provide a lot of your equipment, right?

Air Force: And that we assist your air wing, right?

Army: Yup, he's a Marine.

a girl named Marine can be the best of friend, and can be your worse enemy. she is mysterious which will bring you in wondering who she really is. she has an addictive nature but is kind hearted underneath her violent outside. she is an angry person who you should not mess with but also one of the most gentle people if aproached in the right way, she is very sexualy aware and spontaneuos. You either love her, or hate her.
Marine woman
