Marines have never forgotten HONOR, INTEGRITY, COURAGE, FREEDOM, PATRIOTISM
It's a shame that most of this country has no idea of the meaning of those words.
Honor, Integrity, Courage, Freedom, Patriotism
"It's a shame that most of this country has no idea of the meaning of those words."
It's also a shame that the greatest generation are the grandfathers of these wussies.
I'll drink to that. U.S.M.C. 1965-1969... About two months ago I had the PRIVILEDGE of buying a few beers for a young Marine heading back to Iraq for his second trip.
First trip was as a scout in a L.A.V. unit going into Bagdad. His second trip was with Force Recon. He said they weren't going to be police men, but to kick some serious @ss. Semper Fi y'all
I think many from the greatest generation would agree: our new moral leadership comes from among those who served honorably in Vietnam. We can now look to our vets, men like Rick Rescorla and Aloha Ronnie, for the kind of guidance we once could only find from those who had served in WWII and Korea.
They've learned from their parents' mistakes, and they're ready to pilot our ship of state through the dangers presented by the left. The greatest generation failed to recognize the threat to our sovereignty and moral clarity that the left presented. The Vietnam vets know better...
