    General David H. Berger, Commandant of the United States Marine Corps., refused House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s request to use the Corps. to safeguard Biden’s Jan. 20 inauguration from Trump supporters and insurrectionists. A Pentagon source speaking under promise of anonymity told Real Raw News that Pelosicontacted Gen. Berger late Monday night, and she beseeched him to commit 5,000 troops to help ensure a peaceful transition of power and to prevent a repeat of the Jan 6 siege of the Capitol. Gen. Berger, our source said, didn’t understand why Pelosi needed additional soldiers to augment an already impressive force assembled by...

    At 10 AM on Monday, January 5, 1959, I swore this oath on entering the United States Marine Corps: "I do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God." That oath has no expiration date and is good for everything,...
  • The Marine Corps is creating a 'commando' MOS that can fight modern wars

    Connecting Vets ^ | Dec. 4, 2020 | Jack Murphy
    The Marine Corps is set to dissolve three infantry Military Occupational Specialities (MOS) and combine them into one "commando" MOS that can do it all, according to a Marine combat instructor briefed on the upcoming changes. "They are giving us new protocols and class information," he described. The shift signifies big changes for the Marine Corps and how it fights wars. Currently, rifleman (0311), machine gunner (0331), and mortarman (0341) are separate MOS's but will be combined some time next year into a designation that at the moment is simply being called 03XX. Just to get accepted into the Marine...
  • LSD Use in the Ranks Prompts Testing at USMC Base

    12/10/2020 10:25:09 AM PST · by nickcarraway · 68 replies
    The Marine Corps is conducting random drug testing at one base in North Carolina because of reports that personnel there are using the hallucinogenic drug lysergic acid diethylamide, better known as LSD. The 2nd Marine Division in Jacksonville, North Carolina, has conducted nearly 4,000 random tests for LSD since the start of the summer. Maj. Gen. Francis L. Donovan, the division commander, said the recent rise in LSD use among sailors and Marines on the base has prompted them to change how they test for illegal substances. In the past, the Department of Defense drug lab only accepted individual samples...

    Just the News ^ | November 26, 2020 | Susan Katz Keating
    In an online column denouncing President Trump's "America First" policy that includes measures regarding Beijing, ex-Defense Secretary James Mattis did not disclose his affiliation with an organization that fosters international business deals with communist China. As coauthor with three other writers in a Nov. 23 Foreign Affairs column, Mattis did not mention that he works for the The Cohen Group consulting firm. Nor did he challenge China's tough talk against U.S. policies regarding Taiwan, nor the strict economic retaliation Beijing levied against Australia. Instead, Mattis criticized Trump administration policies toward Beijing. Such policies, touted by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo,...

    Former Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said in an op-ed on Monday that he hopes President-elect Joe Biden will take “America First” out of the national security strategy for his incoming administration. Mattis penned the op-ed, titled “Defense in Depth,” for Foreign Affairs with Kori Schake, director of foreign and defense policy studies at the American Enterprise Institute, Jim Ellis, a fellow at the Hoover Institution and former commander of U.S. Strategic Command, and Joe Felter, a fellow at the Hoover Institution. “In January, when President Joe Biden and his national security team begin to reevaluate U.S. foreign policy, we hope...

    In May, 3,143 new recruits to the Marines were given the option to participate in a study of frequent testing under extreme quarantine. All recruits wore double-layered cloth masks at all times indoors and outdoors, except when sleeping or eating; practiced social distancing of at least 6 feet; were not allowed to leave campus; did not have access to personal electronics and other items that might contribute to surface transmission; and routinely washed their hands. They slept in double-occupancy rooms with sinks, ate in shared dining facilities, and used shared bathrooms. All recruits cleaned their rooms daily, sanitized bathrooms after...

    Retired Army Col. Douglas Macgregor, newly-appointed as a senior adviser at the Pentagon, has a track record of making controversial statements. But his most provocative of all might be a proposal to do away with the U.S. Marine Corps. In a 2012 opinion piece for Time Magazine, Macgregor, a decorated veteran of the Gulf War, argued that the Corps was living on its past glories and was unsuited for combat on today's battlefield, with the possible exception for pushover enemies. He went further, too, suggesting the acronym "USMC" should really stand for "Under-utilized Superfluous Military Capability." "Most of today's Marine...

    All those with invitations to the 245th birthday celebration of the Marine Corps: one step forward—hut!! Whoa not so fast, Mattis. As you were, Kelly. Allen, you are dismissed . . . and double time it you ridiculous person. My impression, which runs as deep as any I have formed in my long life, is that the vast majority of jarheads take their honor WAY seriously. Yes I have seen some bad apples, and truthfully more than a few, that have cast some tarnish on the EGA. We all have. But never enough to make more than a whit of...

    I raise my voice as former Marine with 2 RVN tours. This gigantic lowlife, totally anti-American election fraud troubles me to the roots of my being. Can the bad guys (whole lineup) be any more obvious, I ask you? I didn't put my a** on the line (volunteered on both occasions) for the better part of 2 years of my young life, to "protect and defend" a society of reeking corrupt liars and cheats such as we are seeing on full-dress parade now. Personally, the "unkindest cut" may be the treachery (and yes, that is the word, just check the...

    Business Insider ^ | October 25th, 2020 | Mark Perry
    US Marine officers are notoriously dismissive of those who talk about strategy. "Strategy?" a Marine who served in Vietnam says. "Here was our strategy: hey-diddle-diddle, straight-up-the-middle." The description rings true: The Marine Corps' most famous fights were straight-ahead affairs that gave the Corps its most celebrated moments: at Belleau Wood (in World War I), at Tarawa, Iwo Jima and Okinawa (in World War II), at Inchon (during Korea), at Hue (in Vietnam) and, most recently during the battles for Fallujah, back in 2004. Now, it seems, all of that is changing. In August of last year, Marine Corps Commandant Gen....

    Oct. 26 falls on a Thursday this year. Ask the significance of the date, and you're likely to draw some puzzled looks — five more days to stock up for Halloween? It's a measure of men like Col. Mitchell Paige and Rear Adm. Willis A. "Ching Chong China" Lee that they wouldn't have had it any other way. What they did 58 years ago, they did precisely so their grandchildren could live in a land of peace and plenty. Whether we've properly safeguarded the freedoms they fought to leave us, may be a discussion best left for another day. Today...

    A 96-year-old World War II veteran is hoping to become the oldest Marine to ever complete the Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday. Thiele "Fred" Harvey, who fought in the battle of Iwo Jima, is participating in the race with a team of marathoners -- Dr. Glenn Paige, Chris Haley and Master Gunnery Sgt. Michael Lawrence -- who plan to push Harvey across the finish line. Paige, who has run several Marine marathons, first met Harvey four years ago. The two have talked every week since.
