To young Marine:
“Marine what were the ROEs in effect at that time?”
“Were you ever ordered NEVER to paraphrase the ROEs?”
“Were you ever ordered that ROEs could be communicated only verbatim without any error whatsoever?”
“Were you ever ordered to memorize the ROEs word for word without mistake or ordered only to refer to them by reading from a card EVEN when under attack or in a continuing combat situation?”
Every combat Marine must have a JAG officer, a NCIS agent, and a TIME magazine reporter present with him when engaging the enemy.
