    Excellent post. As a retired Navy Chief Hospital Corpsman, it is common knowledge that the Marines know how to kick ass.

    I believe that it is actually spelled HUA, Heard, Understood, Acknowledged.

    Nice post, btw.

    I believe that HUA is an army thing, but I'm not sure, cause I wasn't in the Army - I was in the Marine Corps. We say "Oorah" or "rrrrrr" (as in a dog growling - as in devil dog) or we simlpy just bark like dogs.

    And its all well and good to admire service men and women whose lives are put at risk over in Iraq and Afghanistan, JenT; but I think a better way to support them is to bring them home out of harm's way. And then to write your congress person and tell them you'd like the VA to get more money to take care of returning veterans who have served and risked their lives for this nation. And ask your congress person not to send our young men and women overseas to fight optional wars and risk their lives to change regimes, but only to risk their lives to fight those who attacked us i.e. Al Qaida, and to fight only in wars that are NECESSARY. That's truly supporting the troops. Oorah!

    We have our Marines over there killing people in their own country.

    For what reason?

    They were Never going to invade American soil.

    Just like Vietnam

    We claim these Marines are fighting for our Freedom.

    What freedoms here in the U.S. are we gaining by killing Iraqies citizens in their own country?

    What freedoms did we Americans gain by sacrificing 58,000 soldiers in Vietnam?

    Or Korea?
