Ok so you are allowed to make fun of other branches of the service (Namely Army), yet the Marine Corps isn't touchable? How many years in the service do you have? Are you just a wannabe cadet at the moment? You'll understand that there are jokes that circulate within each service, and it is all fair game. When things get serious however, each service is professional and respectable. Each service has a different mission so you cannot go on saying one is MORE respectable than another. The Marines are light units that can quickly go in attack and get out. The Army on the other hand is for occupation and stability, using heavier fire power and armor units.

To your response: first of all, the Marines are not always the first to go into a combat zone, usually it is the Special Forces, Army Rangers, Navy Seals, etc depending on the mission. Before claiming that the Marines are "the most professional and respectable," let me ask you, what schools do the Marines have for training? Do the Marines have an Airborne school, Air Assault, Winter Warfare? Should I even need to mention Ranger school or the Special Forces (Green Berets)? How many Marines go to ARMY schools to receive training. Whose tactics and field manuals have the Marines used or "adopted"? That's right, the Army, the largest and FIRST ground force. What service is the oldest-first to fight and build the nation's might? If things get too hot for the Marines and they can't occupy territory, who do they send in? The Army and Marines have different missions.

In regards to positions of honor like guarding the President, each service has their own honors. Let me respond by asking, who guards and cares for Arlington National Cemetary/the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, 365 days 24/7? If you are going to place respectability and professionalism on guarding the president, than by golly, the Secret Service should be the best of all the services....you know they aren't military, right? As an Army Infantry officer, I'm sick and tired of hearing about how the Marines are always more respectable etc... over the Army and vice-versa.

Jokes are fun but when they degrade the men and women of a particular service (calling them less professional or respectable) it goes too far.
Little peckish sir? BTW the Corps has it's winter warfare school at Bridgeport/Pickle Meadows Ca. What we don't have is an Arctic WF school.

BAD the 13th general order in the Corps is Thou shall flippth sh*t at the Navy, Air Force and Army.

Okay this is all in good fun and with all due respect to the Corps. I'm the son of a leatherneck and even he thought this one was funny.

On a sheet of paper draw a large rectangle with an "X" thru it and then put a small "X" on top of the rectangle. Show it to a fellow troop who knows something about map markings and ask him/her what it is. Most will tell you it's an infantry brigade. Tell them "No, it's the signature block of a Marine general endorsed by a captain". If you do that to a Marine prepare to run like hell he he.

After the Revolutionary War the new United States was down sizing it's military.And dividing the remaining forces.
The process went on for several months until all that was left were a bunch of Mules and two Bn's of Marines left.
Since an agreement couldn't be reached between the Commanding General and the Commodore in command they decided to decide it with a coin toss. The winner getting first choice.

The coin was tossed the General won....................His choice....The mules.
