Seriously though, I think Mark had it right. The terms soldier and warrior are not mutually exclusive. One can be both a soldier who has trained for the day he becomes a warrior and a warrior who is also a soldier. Of course you could debate the phrase "Cold War Warrior" as well. I've heard that one and I see nothing really wrong with it. It's a matter of the context you use the words in.

The Marine Corps is a Corps of Warriors! That's ALL it has room for. And the Marine Corps is the most disciplined of all the services.

How would you know? You aren't even in. Keep your opinions of who's better, who has most or this or that trait, etc to yourself. If you have questions, read the forum rules.

Alright, we've been over this far too many times, until you have served, you have NO PLACE TO RANK OR RATE THE SERVICES!

Thank you.

1SG, only the most super-hooah guys can get on the silent drill teams.

Toy Soldiers are high speed(jk) trust me I KNOW.

Back to the topic. I have always made a distinction between soldiers an warriors. A warrior is someone who is born into it, a fighter. Maybe not as disciplined or well trained as a soldier. Example, the Celts and the Romans. The Celts were warriors, and individuals. The romans were soldiers. They were a cohesive unit. When I think of warrior i see Conan.

I think a soldier is someone who is trained, disciplined, and professional. I never saw myself as a warrior, just as a soldier. It just blows my mind that I am in the same boat with guys like York, Benavidez, and the countless other Joes and Marines who have done so much. They are a LONG ways above me though.

I am trained and willing. But will not do so if it is not called for or not necessary. Maybe that is just what has been ingrained in my head. I like to think that, that is how I would act in combat. But I guess i will have to wait to find out. Missed this war. All of my boys and my unit are getting CIBs, and I am getting a $350,000 dollar commission shoved up my fourth point of contact one nickle at a time. Still trying to figure out who got which end of the stick.

Soldier is soldier,man who go to arms.On the other hand warioir is more like mitical name,on my opinion it represents a person who dedicated his whole life to fighting something or someone
