The thing is piling up around his black marine boots. You could call Tom Brady an athlete, but that isn't as correct as calling him a quarterback. Advertisement Perhaps a major indicator of Argentine insecurity is the country's heavy dependence on psychotherapy. One of the problems with this question is this: What does superior really mean? He said he was, and told me where he was stationed. All 3 Marines were over 6' and I'm 6'5, large Americans being loud in the street in China stand out like a sore thumb.
First and foremost, I hope everyone on this forum will answer in a respectful and adult manner. Great post to start this and great comments from my wonderful Marine friends. You will find me in lesser known places that Marines know and others don't. No disrespect to people in the other branches, but the Marines is basically known as the fighting force in the U. I suppose you would be allowed to start the process all over again if you wanted to. By the 1940's, Argentina, rich in farmland and natural resources, was one of the world's 10 most affluent countries, but in 1942 a string of military coups and economic missteps sank it into 40 years of chaos. Now, before we go further, I have no interest in hating on the Ultramarines or any other chapter.
While the exact intent of the label is uncertain, it is generally believed that it stems from the fact that a Marine's head appeared to be sticking out of the top of a Mason jar because of the high collar on his dress uniform. . They are the modern-day Spartans. There are exceptions to every rule, but in general that's what I've seen. Soldier probably adequately describes what they do, marine describes what they are. I hate to see any branch of service disrespect their uniform, and shame their country.
Army is chickenshit in battle, the Navy is worse, and the Air Force is barely even on our side. I don,t know exactly, not first but one of the legions more higher ranking officers. What does arrogance have to do with you being a grunt or not? Would you call someone from Oklahoma a Texan? I think it's something that those who have a lot of experience with the military haver double understanding; some of my family has served so I can understand how they wish to have distinct titles. We wear it daily in our attitude and our love of Corps and country. That's not to say that no one in the Army has discipline or pride or is less capable than the Marines, it's just generally speaking on average the Marines have more discipline and more pride about their service. Of course there were some that could be pretty thick, but even these folks had redeeming qualities.
Despite long proud traditions it's always had it's share of slackers and mal contents. But I easily see them looking down their noses on everyone else. But the place I shine brightest can not be seen, for it is in the hearts of everyman and woman who are known, as Marines. Thanks for the input mate, very useful information there which will help immensely! But their Leadership backed away. Part of what help could have been the amount of training they got before being sent to Vietnam months of it vs. We are the United States Marines, the most feared and ferocious group of warriors to walk the face of this earth.
But soldier isn't wrong in colloquial usage, it perfectly describes what they do, so they're being unreasonable. Many of them have said that a common theme in their practice is the search for cultural roots and identity. You guys, again, get most of my respect. And you have to remember, by the time you met me, I had been out for probably four or five years. Listen to the song and read the words and you will see why Marines are so cocky and arrogant at times. Alternatively you could create a home-brew chapter, or pick a marine from an unlikely chapter - chapter stereotypes do exist but marines do have personalities and some can be wildly at variance to their chapter norms.
Speaking of the Navy, I will say that my six months on ship — and one other month we spent as part of another exercise — taught me that I cannot handle the officer culture of the Navy. Scoring higher can get you promotion points and just make you look and feel good. If you wanted to refer to the entire armed forces of France, you'd refer to the French military or troops or armed forces, but using soldier to describe a Marine is inaccurate at its base. I'm larger and more athletic than the average Navy guy but that probably should have been a warning to the Marines that they didn't heed. They stand behind every Marine who fought during the birth of our nation.
I can imagine a brash and bloodthirsty newbie Carcharodon armed with a chain axe. Menem also raised eyebrows when he decamped early to visit flooded areas of his country. That is the nature of the beast, and there are only a few who will sign up for that. We get the worst of everything. Superiority lies with he who was raised in the severest school Thucydides , and Marines are generally raised in the severest school. The Navy and Air Force can only fill a supporting roll in a war like Afghanistan, while combined arms, mechanized, armored warfare the Army specializes in has zero usefulness in an occupation. Go read it and come back here and leave a comment if you feel so inclined.
They just don't emphasize discipline, pride and fitness in the same way that the Marines do. But the biggest thing is that all Marines have big hearts and willing to anything for the people of this nation. Well, I have to be honest, bro. Hello Guest, if you reading this it means you have not yet registered. I totally get that hating on Ultramarines is the cool thing to do, but I'm more looking for factual and evidence based elements to support claims. Many of these people get very little physical training after relatively mild bootcamps. In this case it sounds like you're asking more what would be the best and most belivable.
According to nearly every future threat assessment, the United States needs to focus on counterterrorism operations and cyber warfare, not for an invasion of China. If someone corrected you, would it be arrogant and asinine? The physical fitness standards don't necessarily mean that one branch is better than another because it expects its members to run a 1. It seems like it would be to me, as the word would have only a generic meaning. Why do Marines appear so arrogant and look down on the other service branches? On November 10, 1775, the Marine Corps was born in Tun Tavern, Philadelphia Pennsylvania, the owner and bartender became the first Marine recruiter. Rangers are basically the Marines of the Army. To compare them to the Spatsnez is completely stupid.
