Being a former Marine, there is no real need to glamorize it. I joined
mainly due to the honor involved.

You notice I didn't type "ex-marine" there are few such creatures. I
personally know of only two. And they were put into 30 years hard labor
for murdering a hobo during a train derailment and robbery.

The old saying is:
        You can take the man out of the Marine Corp, but you can't take
        the Marine Corps out of the man.

Unless you've been in the Marine Corps, you'll never understand.

Case in point I have 2 birthdays per year, March 14th and November 10th.
Lucky is the Marine with only one per year.
