He has a point there, but I think wearing ties into combat is just a bit too much to ask, I mean it's hard enough to keep from getting stains on your tie in civilian life, just think of the junk you'd get on one in battle.

Then you could show your tie off to your grandkids as a real life medal of honor.

The Marines fight like Patton tried to get his soldiers to. So if Patton were the CO of a Marine division and were up to his usual butt kicking then what do you think the result would have been?

I bet that marine division could have single handedly conquered the world. Any thoughts?

Ok, heres the thing about Patton. He was a tank man, always was, I just don't think he could handle a light infantry force like the USMC, even though they do use Armor and artillery. Bacially the type of fighting he did and Europe was radically different from the Pacific.
