Merry Christmas-Your Marines are on guard-all is well.

Christmas is a special time of year. If you can’t be with those you love be thankful they and you are healthy and happy. It’s a special occasion to be able to sacrifice that you love for a country you also love when you are away from your family.  It’s not about some gift you can’t afford it’s a celebration of the season the birth of Jesus.

Semper Fidelis

Within the Marines and especially the infantry you hear some interesting quotes and some are dead on. The infantryman is a unique monster, many never understand why they like what they do and you either love being in the infantry or are on the other end of the spectrum about it. Below are a few of the “phrases” I’ve heard about the Infantry.
