"A Marine is a Marine. I set that policy two weeks ago. There's no such thing as a former Marine. You're a Marine, just in a different uniform and you're in a different phase of your life. But you'll always be a Marine because you went to MCRD Parris Island, MCRD San Diego or the hills of Quantico and Camp Pendleton. Again, there's no such thing as a former Marine."
-General James F. Amos, 35th Commandant of the Marine Corps

I quit calling myself a former Marine, never ex-Marine. I call myself a Marine. If asked if I am on active duty, I respond that I am on detached duty.
When I die, I will be a Marine on permanent duty at Marine Corps Barracks, Heaven.

Knowing what my Grandson went through last year at boot camp on Parris Island, I say you deserve the honor of being known as a Marine for the rest of your life!

He's a Marine. Give him a minute, let a sergeant talk to him, let him practice, and he'll come up with a good insult. They can be pretty funny, particularly when there's beer, C4 and heavy objects involved.

If he laughs and says "watch this shit!" it's time to run.

Whenever I see a Marine, I just give him a coloring book and crayons. Big pictures and bright colors easily distract them.

Especially if it is about a target rich environment, plenty of ammo and beer. Plenty of good looking women waiting for you to get back from fighting also helps.

Beer!

I've always agreed with Marines about beer!

Drill Sergeant Olguin taught me that the way to communicate with a Marine is crayons and interpretive dance, and he warned me that those options would limit discussions of the more subtle facets of any subject I wanted to discuss, particularly if philosophy was involved.

He also said that every Marine is a philosopher past a certain critical mass of beer, and that it can be hard to shut them up after that.
