Baby blue marines are sent home during boot camp because they can't hack it. They were a baby blue uniform home. I dont know if they still do that but it must have been humiliating. Unless you have seen baby blue marine then you might not care that much.
hey dont forget about Warlen Bermudez........... well thats me and i just got out of the marines but i am gonna be famous someday so in like 5-7 years someone is going to be talking like that about me.

Im proud to have served, but i am more proud of the people that served before me.

wasn't Elvis in the US army postal service during 'Nam?

Nope, Elvis was a Tank Crewman with the 1st Battalion 32nd Armor in Friedberg Germany from 1958 to 1960, which is before Viet Nam really got started. :)

My uncle Fred - served in the big one WWII: Roi-Namur, Saipan, Tinian and Iwo Jima.

A hero to me.

RIP 1922 - 2008.
I believe the thread was made the list marines made famous by their other actions, stop listing marines made famous for being marines.
And I believe that when your a mod......then you can moderate.

Until that time don't moderate or attempt to.

And BTW it's about famous people who have served in the Marine Corps so your wrong.
Well there ya go....now you know.

Has far as I'm concerned anyone who wants to can list their uncle, brother whoever if they served in the Marine Corps, up to and including Private Shmuckatelli........anyone who has ever served in the Corps knows that guy.
Ooh-Rah Gunny, all marines should be famous in this country. Any marine that raised their right hand has put their butt on the line at that moment. Heroes!
