"I guess, over time, I had convinced myself that I could imagine what it would be like to lose a son or daughter. You try to imagine it so that you can write the right kind of letters or form the right words to try to comfort. But you can't even come close. It is unimaginable."

Marine Major General John F. Kelly

"Rest assured, my fellow citizens, the nation you are a part of, this
young experiment in democracy called America started just over
two centuries ago, will forever remain the 'land of the free and home
of the brave' so long as we never run out of tough young Americans
willing to look beyond their own self interest and comfortable lives,

and go into the darkest and most dangerous places on earth
to hunt down, and kill, those who would do us harm."

"Semper Fidelis"

Marine Major General John F. Kelly (17 February 2012)

"If you think this war against our way of life is over because some of the self-appointed opinion-makers and chattering class grow ‘war weary,’ because they want to be out of Iraq or Afghanistan, you are mistaken. This enemy is dedicated to our destruction. He will fight us for generations, and the conflict will move through various phases as it has since 9/11."

"We are at war and, like it or not, that is a fact.
It is not Bush's war, and it is not Obama's war. It is our war, and we can't run away from it."

Men like them held Guadalcanal and took Iwo Jima.
Bagdad ain't shit."

"When future generations ask why America is still free and the
heyday of Al Qaeda and their terrorist allies was counted in days
rather than in centuries as the extremists themselves predicted,
our hometown heroes-soldiers, sailors, airmen, Coast Guardsmen,
and Marines-can say,

because of me and people like me who risked all to protect millions
who will never know my name."

"Those with less of a sense of service to the nation never understand
it when men and women of character step forward to look
danger and adversity straight in the eye, refusing to blink,
or give ground, even to their own deaths.

The protected can't begin to understand the price paid
so they and their families can sleep safe and free at night."

"I grew up in Boston in a very, very, very Marine town. So back in my neighborhood in Boston, a working-class neighborhood, when you got your draft notice, you went down, and you took your draft physical. And then, if you passed it, you joined the Marine Corps.”

"The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some sh-heads in the world that just need to be shot.
There are hunters and there are victims.

By your discipline, you will decide if you are a hunter or a victim."
