The true story of the USMC’s origins

Filed under: Uncategorized — antitango @ 6:09 am

I was reminded of this by my fairly new friend Carl over at Semper Fi Parents.  Many know about the “history” of my US Marine Corps.  Few know the REAL story behind the world’s finest fighting force…

The USMC is over 236 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 an M-16, our Father the Devil himself. 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 the grace of God.  Ooh rah…

Now you know!  And knowing’s half the battle!
