So I see where the Marine Corps has began down the slippery slope that the US Army is on. Changing uniforms. The US Army spends billions on changing uniforms at the cyclic rate. Why? Think about the young “joe” who is living from paycheck to pay check having to change some of his gear because of big Army changing uniform tops. He has to go through this goat rope or some SgtMaj will throttle him for having the wrong color glow belt on.
It was a sad day in America when 5 warriors were gunned down in TN last Thursday (July 16, 2015). The white house calls it a “heart breaking event” but everyone else in America calls it a terrorist attack. A Kuwaiti-born muslim gunman, with discovered ties to ISIS, killed four Marines and a Sailor.
The only "good" thing to come out of this is that "Lt. Cmdr. Timothy White, the commanding officer at the Navy Operational Support Center, fired his sidearm at Mohammed Abdulazeez during Thursday's attack." It is unknown if "his" bullet killed the terrorist or not. That will be determined after the autopsy. God help anyone that even thinks about prosecuting Lt Cmndr White for using his own weapon.
As these warriors were conducting their daily work schedule, they were innocently killed by a worthless piece of crap weak Fcker. This worm thinks he accomplished his goal which is being argued by his parents didn’t have any terrorist ties. However, what he did in America was once again, bring the people of America together and made a lot more Americans, want to be Marines.
For all of the "I want to attack some reserve centers", or any other "soft targets" out there, know you are now in our sights. Besides the 180,000+ active duty Marines, every other Marine that has retired has added you to the list. You see, those off active duty don't have ROEs (Rule of Engagement), and they blend in to every potential target you have named to attack. The soccer mom, the guy over there by the Harley, they person right behind you in the mall, are all Marines and carry weapons. You think you are attacking a soft target but your actually walking into an ambush. You are dealing with well trained individuals who are bonded through smells of gunpowder and thrive operating in harsh shitty conditions. If you think we have forgotten Iraq & Afghanistan, you are wrong. We are the ones you are threatening and the ones who kicked ass over there. Marines are a family of blood & sweat, we have loyalty to one another you can not fathom. I give zero Fcks what the attack on our brothers is called, it is terrorism, anyone with any common sense can see that. You have been advised. Time for a C-Gar-Semper Fidelis
Take note Fckers:
"In the first six to twelve months of a war with the United States and Great Britain I will run wild and win victory upon victory. But then, if the war continues after that, I have no expectation of success."
"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass."
"I fear all we have done is awaken a sleeping giant and fill him with a terrible resolve." [upon learning of the success of the Japanese raid on Pearl Harbor]
Petty Officer RANDALL SMITH, a 24-year-old, succumbed early Saturday to injuries suffered in Thursday's shooting at the Navy Operational Support Center in Chattanooga. Please keep his family in your prayers. He leaves his wife and three daughters.
I just don’t get it. In the unfortunate, cowardly terrorist attack yesterday in Tennessee against Marines in their recruiting center, I have to ask anyone out there, do you think this could have been prevented?
I’ve only done five combat tours (there are many who have done more) however, I have seen young Marines and all members of our military service given vast responsibility and authority in combat.
Just when you think our country is totally embedded with F-tards, someone steps up and shows that they “Get it”. In this story from the ”Blaze” a fellow warrior goes to Buffalo Wild Wings to have a lunch and honor a fallen warrior, her brother. A sharp salute to Buffalo Wild Wings on how they handled this – Time for a C-Gar.
“After she left, I didn’t have the heart to dump the beer out and throw it away, so I put it on top of the cooler next the American Flag,” Avey wrote. “When I showed my boss his response was Amazing… He said ‘That’s Fine, just do me a favor, put a fresh Lime in it Every Morning.’” Read more here
MATT AMOS: A NEW MISSION
By Bob Hamer
Two explosions, missing legs, and a lifetime of scars won’t prevent Marine Corps Sergeant Matt Amos, the founder and CEO of Admiral’s Pennant, from completing the next mission. “Honor, courage, and commitment,” core values he lived while on active duty remain as he transitions to civilian life.
Even if you ask some veterans or even some active duty, they may not know “who” is still in Afghanistan. Currently, there are less than 10,000 US troops in Afghanistan who maintain two large bases in Kandahar, the main city in southern Afghanistan, and in Jalalabad, the biggest city in the country’s east. Last October, this “administration” pulled all Marines out of Afghanistan so we wouldn’t keep attacking the “bad guys”. I thought that’s how you win wars, not to this administration. Left behind in Afg were sparse US Army units who’s rules of engagement were so tight, many served their entire deployment sitting on the bases, getting shot at. Pretty lame when you think we were sent there to actually win.
