We got some smart ones on this forum

Personally, I like the quote. I think its rather amusing, and also praising to the Corps. Oorah.

It is said that the Marines are like an acult, but I dont believe that one bit. But I guess I'll see soon enough.

They say it's like a cult because of the strong feeling Marines have about the Corps. It is somewhat unmatched when compared to other branches. Thats my take on it at least, but like you, I'll find out soon enough as well

I have to agree - the USMC is like a cult - a brotherhood if you would. I think the quote is a great compliment - Marines take pride in their gung-ho attitude and abilities. They are better trained than most other branches and a really close group of warriors - that and the fact that they put their bacon on the line for us during every conflict says quite a bunch - and this coming from a person that favors the Army more than any other branch!

I was Army but I think the phrase "there are no ex-Marines, once a Marine, always a Marine" sums up how the Corp feels about the cohesiveness of their forces. All the better to bring pure hell on the enemy.

Pretty well known qoute in the Corps there "Gunny". Matter of fact one of our Marine Members here uses it as a sig line. (BTW that particular Marine was a Scout Sniper. )

The qoute itself dates from WWII and was meant as a compliment toward the Marine Corps. Not a crack or slight.

Might help if you fill out your profile.

How about an introducton "Gunny."
