I personally think the new ban on our hard charging devil dogs getting ink done is STUPID!!! so we can go to foreign countries and lay our lives on the line but we can’t get tattoos on our body!!!! The Commandant says we don’t want to tarnish our polished looks….come on now we are MARINES….we get down and do the dirty stuff nobody else want to do, that is what we are known for. Not for being neat and clean and polished. Let our MARINES get their ink done so that they can continue to keep their morale and show their pride to all. Ohhhhhh Rahhhhhhh and SEMPER FI!!!
