Struck a nerve with a moderator! My apologies, I didn't see blasphemy in the site rules...
If you google Squid, it says. The lowest form of MARINE life.
Must be a jughead.
They clean up them Dress Blue's!!
Sailor's like to show 'em off while on liberty, after all.
4 years on the Mighty USS Blue Ridge (LCC-19) and a close encounter slightly south of the Sea of Okhostk on a Sistership Cruise with the JMSDF Shirane (DDH-144) resulted in the crew of the Blue Ridge watch the USS New Jersey come to our aid when our navigational skills came into question, lol.
I also deployed on the USS Midway (CV-41) and the Devil Dog's onboard that ship garnered much respect. I think we all know why they are on the big boats, bad to the bone mf'ers and this Sailor will always have respect for the Marine Corps.
Well, the Marines didn't fall into this little story, but the Navy did...
...went to a restaurant in Canon City, CO some years ago with my wife, sister-in-law and brother-in-law. BIL was an AF veteran. As we approached the door, a gentleman came out and saw my BIL's cap referring to the Air Force. The gentleman jokingly stated, "Air Force...bus boys."
I looked at his cap and saw that he was a Navy veteran, so I stated, "Hmmm...Navy veteran...swabbie. I'm an Army veteran and we clean other people's clocks."
(I guess one could say that the "younger" infantry force that is assigned to the Navy could be considered as those that "cleaned clocks" as well.)
It may be time to remind everyone that the Marine Corps is part of the Department of the Navy.
The MENS Department
Regardless of branch........thank you to all that served.
In the long past of my Navy days I’ve heard the Marines referred to as cargo.
It has baffled me for a long time. Growing up an army brat I knew of the other branches. There were four. I knew how they came to exist. Originally there was only two branches Army and Navy. The Air Force branched off of the Army. The Marines branched off from the Navy. The thing is when did the lifeguards become a branch of the military? Never once did I hear them referred to as a branch of the military
I remember as a Navy sailor that I was a bit envious of the Coast Guards working schedule. . Reveille Piped at six on my ship and we would be at quarters at seven. Those Coastie‘s didn’t pipe the reveille whistle untill 9 in the morning. We had this old World War II Coast Guard ship called the basswood that would moore not far from us. From my Machine shop I heard their whistle every day. They had it pretty easy.
I’ve seen them repeatedly insinuated as a DOD branch with the other four. Right up to 911 they were DOT. Then they got swapped to DHS. Never have they been DOD. When did this all start?
