More to ” The Basic Military Rules”

And then there is always this:
MILITARY DIFFERENCES

The reason the U. S. Armed Forces have
difficulty in coordinating and cooperating
with each other is that they do not use the
same jargon, and misunderstandings
frequently occur. For example:

If you tell the U. S. Navy to SECURE a
building, they will simply turn out the
lights and lock the door.

If you tell the U. S. Army to SECURE a
building, they will occupy the structure
and permit only persons with a proper
pass to enter.

If you tell the U. S. Air Force to SECURE a
building, they will take out a three year
lease with an option to buy.

If you tell the U. S. Marines to SECURE a
building, they will call for an air strike,
assault the structure with heavy artillery,
ground and small arms fire, capture the
facility, fortify it and hold the ground at
all costs until properly relieved.

Not that amazing Brother. I do respect your opinion. You are not the only one I heard similar comments before. I did not start out feeling this way. I have 5 service connected disabilities.I was granted,in 2017, 100% P&T because of bladder cancer due to shitty water at Swamp Lagoon that our government including Navy and Marines tried to cover up beginning in the late 50’s. I WILL squeeze every penny that I can out of this government as long as I live. Just for the record I would give every penny back for my health. Nick

It’s amazing………..People put down our government and it’s military. However, I personally do not know anyone that doesn’t cash their Compensation checks or refuses free, or at reduced cost, care at a Veterans Administration Medical Clinic. SEMPER FI……………RT

When I was in the Marine Corps, after Boot Camp, we all got our assigned to our MOS Military Occupation Service, mine was 5811, Military Police. So We all headed to Fort McClellan, (Anniston) Alabama,(Which is no longer there) to be trained by Army NCO’s, The big mistake the Army made was putting all of us Green Marines, in one Platoon, all 64 of Us, and We had a Army Staff Sergeant who was our NCO. He tried to break Us down and run 2 miles, big mistake, We were all right out of Bootcamp, and 2 miles is a walk in the park., for Marines, We ran him crazy, with our Marine PT , He always came in last place, after We Marines finished our Military Police School training, this Staff Sergeant was promoted to Sergeant First Class, but We all graduated from the Military Police School .
