MARINES ARE SOLDIERS! — SOLDIERS OF THE SEA

DON’T YOU DARE CALL ME A SOLDIER!!!

Marines’ sites and bulletin boards on the Internet are nothing short of amazing regarding what many do not know about Marine Corps history and traditions.

There are numerous cases where Marines–some of them even senior enlisted Marines and officers–post and respond to downright erroneous information demonstrating a definite lack of knowledge on various topics of Marine Corps interest.

I have addressed several of these individual topics elsewhere on Gunny G’s.

Perhaps, some independent study would be in order–better start at the top.

One random example, among many I have noticed, are several items lately where Marines are lambasting someone or other on the subject of one’s having dared to refer to a Marine, or Marines, using the term “soldier.”

With righteous indignation they scream that they are Marines, not soldiers, and they decry those who call them such!

And rightfully so, in some cases, where the media or an individual, whatever, is using that term within an inappropriate context.
