You Did What to Become a Marine?

Topic: You Did What to Become a Marine?

SERVING WITH THE MARINE CORPS in Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm, my husband, Darren, was selected for guard duty. One day he discovered that certain stories about the Corps had been circulating among our allies. While standing at his post, he noticed that the Saudi on duty with him was watching him out of the corner of his eye. Every time Darren looked over, the Saudi would glance away. Finally the soldier nervously asked, "Have you ever killed a member of your own family?"

Taken aback, Darren laughingly replied, "No."

"Well, then," questioned the Saudi, "how did you get into the Marine Corps?"
