WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Marines are highlighting a kinder, gentler side in a new ad campaign.
Known more for its war-fighting skills, the Marine Corps is launching new ads about its humanitarian missions and help with other crises around the world.

When they aren’t flaming!!!
For some reason I’m reminded of Caligula forcing his legionaires to gather seashells and issuing homoerotic passwords to the Praetorian Guard.
I obviously care that the Marines do in total, but my biggest care is how they treat their families when they come home alive. Outside of basic human rights, that’s where my concerns end when they’re in the field of combat.
If there wasn’t trouble they wouldn’t be there. Stop causing trouble, and forget about them showing up. Forget about them doing something you don’t like.
The Marine Corps creates corpses for our nation's enemies. Lots and lots of corpses. It would be an alternate reality if our nation's enemies consisted ONLY of liberal college students and professors because then the mere threat of real violence would cow them into abject submission. But, we don't live in an alternate reality.
The United States reality today is that we face the most evangelical religion and political system in the world with the fastest demographic growth rate that is sworn to our utter destruction, defeat, humiliation and servitude. Once our military can no longer protect us we will be bullied not just into silence but into dhimmitude. We will be converted by the sword.
When one says he is watching your six, better take note of what his twelve is up to.
Most Marines treat their families decently and are not the mad nutcases that grab headlines. Or do you mean to get at something else.
The marines kill people and break things. That is their mission.
Ahhh, the new recruiting poster..
Seriously, somewhere in this great country my DI is rolling over in his grave.
They want to help people? Then become the best @#$%^$# fighting force in the world. Love everyone, but be prepared to KILL them the second they show any animosity.
They can help us defend this country. THAT is what they are for. Kill people and break things.
If you want to be a candy-ass join the peace corps. The Marines will come get you when you get in trouble.
“The Navy has been airing their globalist force for good commercials for awhile now.”
I saw the Navy commercial one day with my son (who is in high school). He said, “Force for good? I thought they were supposed to be the world’s most powerful force of death and destruction for anyone who tried to harm us. They make it look like a floating Red Cross. I don’t think that Halsey guy in WWII would like the new Navy.”
The direction the military is being forced to take is not lost on the youth.
That crashing sound you here is my old Marine DI from Pensacola thrashing around in his grave. But if Obozo can order NASA to tell Muslims how wonderful they are for inventing science, math, space travel, luggage, flower arranging, medicine, and the flush toilet, I guess he can order the USMC to wear pink.
The Marine Corps already has a “kinder gentler” side. It’s called “Toys for Tots.”
International “Meals on wheels” type crap is a misuse of the Marine Corps and taxpayer funds. Makes me want to puke.
Somehow I don’t think our future opponents in China are engaging in “forces for good.” Nor are two members of the same gender liplocking upon return from deployment.
“America” is getting sicker by the day....
Man this is a turgid hunk of prose. I don’t know what you are trying to mean, and at this juncture will not guess.
Maybe YOU can help one of THEM!
The Few. The Proud. The Helpers.
