Right the fuck on!!!

Dumb question, Major. Do you still get to wear the Fourragère after you leave the 6th Marines? Just wondering. Semper Fi.


Hey Mike P I would say No, because it is a unit citation and no one out of the unit
is allowed to wear it. only the 5th & 6th Marines and the 4th heavy machine guns,
but the 4th does not exist anymore, so only the 5th and 6th can wear it.

Bruce- You nailed it. I did wear it when I was was with 1/6 but once you leave you dont wear it anymore. Its a unique item and if a BN Cdr is savvy he does a formation of new joins to the unit and has Marines already within the unit fit the new Marines with the item. Its a nice touch and makes your new arrival Marines feel special at no cost to you as a cdr while at the same time leaving a positive element onyour young Marines. Basic leadership 101. Take care of your Marines, past & present.

Love you all!

While I was in the 2nd Mar Div, 2nd and 8th marines, we'd always see the 6th Marines with them on. We'd always yell at them, "Blow your whistle for us!" We were just jealous, but would never admit it. Semper Fi.

not fake

If you'll need cash before you're payday though then you definitely'll see that payday advances will offer you the quick method to money not fake similarly, delhi chief minister sheila dikshit too can't ignore the allegations made with the cag audit and shunglu committee reports.
