From the website:
Who Needs A License?
Anyone wishing to use the marks, logos and symbols of the USMC must obtain a license.

Actually, wedo not “earn” the globe and anchor...as The Marines’ Hymn sez....we “claim” the title of United States Marines...
In fact, I do not recall the “earn” bs showing up till sometime in the late ‘60s; then it found its way into print somewhere...; and with the coming of the Internet—once algore invented it, and Gill Bates who got it off the ground for algore—then all hands started believing the whole thing and it’s now engraved in stone somewhere.

Making this applicable to Marines—active, discharged, retired, reserve, etc,—gives the word “chickensh!t” a whole new meaning!!!!!
That is, Marines not engaged in commercial business....
Y’all remember what Chesty Puller said on loyalty?
Loyalty Up and DOWN!!!!!
Be that as it may, I earned it : )
everyone to their own kick...
the biggest sh!tty since the supersergeant patgrades of 1959-60!
I think once this thing sinks in, there’s going to be a much energized discussion on it.
