You worry about the Army the Marines got it under control.

Why in hell can’t the Army do it if the Marines can. They are the same kind of men; why can’t they be like Marines.
Gen. John J. “Black Jack” Pershing, USA; 12 February 1918

“The safest place in Korea was right behind a platoon of MARINES. LORD, how they could fight!”
MAJ. GEN. FRANK LOWE, U.S. ARMY

In combat chaplains aren’t given branch-specific duty. That’s why I prayed over your dead, and with your infantry, and with your armor, and why I led services for your Seals and your guards.

It’s just the way it works.
