There is only one Ex-Marine, Murtha.
Actually, I will give you an example of another “ex-marine”. I think he qualified as being worthless enough to give up his title.
I was going to post this as it’s own thread, but for now, I’ll just respond here.
Last Friday, my nephew and his fiancee, three weeks after burying their daughter (she was five months pregnant when she lost the child, and they had been engaged for 7 months, so it wasn’t shot-gun, it was they were just waiting until he was done with his advanced training for his NG post), were visiting a bar. They had decided to join some friends for some drinks, and when they got there, she caught the eye of the ex-marine.
He decided that my nephew wasn’t good enough for her. So, he went over and asked my soon-to-be niece to go home with him. Apparently, made some other rather crude remarks and made them both very uncomfortable. To show how the NG training helped him with discipline, my nephew and his fiancee decided to leave the bar. The ex-marine followed them into the parking lot, and when the ex-marine grabbed her by the arm, my nephew intervened. My nephew was sucker-punched and knocked to the ground. The ex-marine then grabbed my stb-niece by the throat and tried to remove her clothes. Apparently, he told her he was going to have her in the parking lot. My nephew got up again, and was hit in the head, knocked to the ground, and then, with steel-toed boots, was repeatedly kicked in the head until he was nearly broken. He spent two days in ICU. His skull is fractured, his eye-socket crushed, his jaw is shattered, and he still has boot-marks on his face.
THAT, by my definition, is an ex-marine. A jerk who would viciously attack and beat a National Guard member so that he could rape the NG member’s fiancee’ (she was ALSO in the guard, but had to be medically discharged when she shattered her leg in multiple fractures during training).
And if anyone disagrees that the monster described above is not an ex-marine, then they don’t understand what an honor it is to be one. I wasn’t medically capable of making it, but if I was, I’d have been in the marines.
You've obviously forgotten about Garwood, Glenn, Lonetree, Oswald, Dennehy, Kovic, Dellums, Carville, Ritter, Massey, et al.
