Marines can carry an all-black, plain, standard or collapsible umbrella at their option during inclement weather with the service and dress uniforms, according to a new All Marine Corps message, the site reported.
Previously, only female Marines were allowed to use umbrellas while in their service or dress uniforms. They are required to carry it in their left hand so they are free to salute with their right.

“However, umbrellas are not permitted during actual combat operations....”
Remember King Obama having the Marine hold an Umbrella over his Head in the Rose Garden?
Makes my blood boil thinking about it.
Have they issued regulation for male purses yet?
It’s just around the corner.
And THAT is why I jointed the Air Force :)
(It is just a joke people ;) )
Just crap. You can only get as wet on the outside as you already are on the inside.
The Old Corps will now be pre-fruity umbrellas. Whats next? Sunglasses in formation?
I dont know man, we shouldn’t short shift the umbrella as a weapon. We can reference the 1993 film Iron Monkey to witness actor Donnie Yen whoop ass with an umbrella.
Of all the petty, annoying things that the evil communist did while he occupied our White House, that was among the most offensive. It was just an intentional though trivial expression of disrespect for real Americans, but it showed how he sees normal people. Obama was in no way worthy of standing beside that man, but the entitled brat from Indonesia treated a United States Marine like a servant.
It would be OK if the umbrellas had a sword or firearm.
Do you know who holds the Marine's umbrella?
Makes perfect sense since they allowed homos and trannies in.
Marines use umbrellas?
That’s fine. That way we can use the Marines to hold umbrellas over the heads of collectivist politicians.
There is also the picture / video of Obama walking ahead the Old Black Professor being helped down the Stairs by that “racist” Cop at the much ballyhooed Beer Summit.
Then I watch POTUS Trump helping the Cop on Stage who was using one of those scooters he had to use because of Ankle Surgery at the Police Chiefs Convention.
Well, as annoying as that picture is, try to think of this way - because that Marine sure as Hell does;
That young Marine IS part of an outstanding American Warrior Tradition going back over 200+ years,
WAS part of that same tradition the day that pic was taken,
and WILL BE part of that same tradition until the day he passes away.
He shares a place in history with other young Marines who stormed Belleau Wood in the Argonne, seized and held Tarawa, Iwo Jima, Saipan, Peleliu, Chosin Reservoir, Khe Sanh, Hue, and a thousand other places
over the course of the last century.
OBunghole, on the other hand will always be nothing more than the same worthless, stumblebum partisan dork he was on that day and still is today.
So all in all, I’m pretty sure what that young Marine was thinking as he stood there holding the umbrella; it’s a small price to pay for the chance to present a clear and present distinction between himself, and the POS at the podium.
And while I’m at it - happy upcoming USMC Birthday (November 10) to Marines everywhere. Semper Fi, and God bless you all.
only as another means of being able to kill someone.
