    Just out of curiousity.

    I know RayboyUSMC, and Retired GySgt, are former Marines. And I've seen a few others. If you're active duty, reserves, or a former Marine, bark here.

    Oorah, fellow devil dog, letherneck, lean, green, killing machines!

    Is Gunny a Marine? His name makes it seem that way.

    Are you a Marine?

    Here are some photos circa 1960/61 for those who were "Hollywood" Marines and trained at Camp Pendleton/Camp San Onofre 1st ITR for advanced infantry training

    Ixnay on the condescension-ay there, chet.

    You don't know that Coloradomtnman is a Marine. There are so many wanna-bes on the internet. Anyone can say "oorah leatherneck". They can, and they do. I hear it so many times, and want to break their arms. It's so disrespectful to say "oorah" if you haven't earned the right to do so by earning the Title.

    And there's no such thing as "was" a Marine. A Marine never stops being a Marine.

    And why would you assume that I would enlist in the Army? What branch were you in?
