\" War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The degraded state of morale and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.\"
- John Stewart Mill
\" Some people spend their entire lifetime wondering if they have made a difference, the Marines dont have that problem.\"
- President Ronald Reagan, 1985

\"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbled, or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena; whose face is marred by the dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions and spends himself in a worthy course; who at the best, knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who, at worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly; so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory or defeat.\" - TR

Navy Docs info
I always wondered why it was Navy Docs that inspected the Marine Corps.
But when you reminded me off the "nuts exam" I remembered it was just up the Navy's alley.
