Topic: USMC are fanatics?


U.S. Marines are about the most peculiar breed of human beings I have ever known. They treat their service as if it was some kind of cult, plastering their emblem on almost everythng they own, making themselves up to look like insane fanatics...., which I have come to the conclusion they are!"

Who ever the Canadian Citizen is that posted this remark about the USMC I would like to have had with me in Nam. I would have made you take point every dam day. You wouldn't even qualify for the cub scouts nor would you dare make that remark to any marine in person. You hide behind your computer, you coward!

It's a known remark man..... Noone from this forum, and I believe that it was a remark made in Awe, not an insult.

Good for them, at least you can guarantee they will hold their ground/attack when told to.

So you don't agree with the statement then, well it's widespread, and I'm sure it wasn't on the computer when the canuck said the darn thing.

Topic: In reply to those who asked some questions


To the person that asked why I spelled my name Gunnie? Because this group already had someone with that spelling. Why I posted this message on this group? I just stumbled here looking for sniper info and came accross this group. I saw that crack about marines and couldn't resist the temptation to comment. Thank you.

sorry mate but i think you should have got more of a "feel" for this forum before commenting on anything...for the most part we are all military folk and we're all pretty much aware of the rules...

plus there are many MANY marines that post here....and they certianly haven't taken offence

take the comment in the spirit it was given
