I count the USMC, and most Marines (Murtha the corrupt excluded) to be a national treasure.
And I did time in the USN.
The USArmy has at times been nearly as honorable but has found itself in the last decade a national disgrace because of sorry leadership-(see the Ft Hood massacre response as example). Embarrrassssing and anti-American. Casey is the worst of the worst.
I’ve had family who have served in every branch-including the Coast Guard.
I spent 8 years in the Marine Corps. It is a great outfit-and not just in war. As seen in this story. Some tough guys with hearts of gold.
I consider Murtha on a par with Lee Harvey Oswald as far as former Marines go. I agree with you also about that PC General Crazy, as I call him.
Thanks for your service. Merry Christmas to you and yours.
