The Marines I work with always spell it "U - Rah" because "Ooh" sounds like O.. On google, I've seen it both ways. Personally I like the "U" because that's how it sounds, but I'm not going to quibble about it, especially in light of the fact this is good news about a fine young man heeding the call of service. (I.e., no offense meant)

What you "personally like" is irrelevant.
Tell you what you can do, sweetheart, go spend some three months at one of the Depots bellowing "ewe-rah" and then come back and tell us how it's spelled.

It is actually more of a UGH sound, not a U sound...
makes it sound sharper...
Someone told me it is an English translation for the Russian phrase, "KILL THEM ALL"

You write it and say it anyway you please. Marines past present and future appreciate the support.
To be a Marine in itself is a great honor. To have such an opportunity demands gratitude by Marines and former Marines to the people who show up at work everyday, foot the bill by their taxes, buy and build for us the best equipment they can, provide us with quality food, clothing, shelter and at great expense do not abandon us after we are broken. Three cheers for the American people who provide Marines with the Honor of Serving them and the Greatest Nation on Earth.
The Christian Nation of the United States of America.
