More to ” The Basic Military Rules”

And then there is always this:
MILITARY DIFFERENCES

The reason the U. S. Armed Forces have
difficulty in coordinating and cooperating
with each other is that they do not use the
same jargon, and misunderstandings
frequently occur. For example:

If you tell the U. S. Navy to SECURE a
building, they will simply turn out the
lights and lock the door.

If you tell the U. S. Army to SECURE a
building, they will occupy the structure
and permit only persons with a proper
pass to enter.

If you tell the U. S. Air Force to SECURE a
building, they will take out a three year
lease with an option to buy.

If you tell the U. S. Marines to SECURE a
building, they will call for an air strike,
assault the structure with heavy artillery,
ground and small arms fire, capture the
facility, fortify it and hold the ground at
all costs until properly relieved.

  2. Our great Military always gets the job done, but our Marines are the absolute best. It is always ” Mission Accomplished”. Semper Fi.

  3. HOW TRUE. THEY ARE ALL GOOD BUT NOT AS GOOD AS WE ARE.
    SEMPER FI. ENJOY THE YEAR OF THE MARINES—2020. SAME AS THE PREVIOUS YEARS THEY HAVE EXISTED.

  4. When I was in the Marine Corps, after Boot Camp, we all got our assigned to our MOS Military Occupation Service, mine was 5811, Military Police. So We all headed to Fort McClellan, (Anniston) Alabama,(Which is no longer there) to be trained by Army NCO’s, The big mistake the Army made was putting all of us Green Marines, in one Platoon, all 64 of Us, and We had a Army Staff Sergeant who was our NCO. He tried to break Us down and run 2 miles, big mistake, We were all right out of Bootcamp, and 2 miles is a walk in the park., for Marines, We ran him crazy, with our Marine PT , He always came in last place, after We Marines finished our Military Police School training, this Staff Sergeant was promoted to Sergeant First Class, but We all graduated from the Military Police School . Semper Fidelis

  5. As a Lance Corporal in VN.1965 My MOS 0331 Machine gunner.I learned a lot. I would do it all again. I’m proud to be called a Marine. Bless all my Marine brothers & Sisters. Happy New Year. Semper Fi !!

    1. I know I’m going to stir up some shit, but how ,knowing what we know now, the government betrayal, agent orange etc.. would you want to do it again! Nick.

  6. It’s amazing………..People put down our government and it’s military. However, I personally do not know anyone that doesn’t cash their Compensation checks or refuses free, or at reduced cost, care at a Veterans Administration Medical Clinic. SEMPER FI……………RT

    1. Not that amazing Brother. I do respect your opinion. You are not the only one I heard similar comments before. I did not start out feeling this way. I have 5 service connected disabilities.I was granted,in 2017, 100% P&T because of bladder cancer due to shitty water at Swamp Lagoon that our government including Navy and Marines tried to cover up beginning in the late 50’s. I WILL squeeze every penny that I can out of this government as long as I live. Just for the record I would give every penny back for my health. Nick
