Is this the same man?

Views on the year from the ranks

LCpl Kerr added: "We had completed our last task and were returning to camp when it happened.
"Everybody there at the time did a professional job."

On his decision to join the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders, he said: "I wanted a change.
"I volunteered to come here and wanted to go to Afghanistan and be part of 16 Air Assault.

"I'm still doing the same job and treated the same."

On the creation of the regiment, he said: "It did not really bother me. I'm still doing the same job."

FreetardoRivera: ajgeek: Lsherm: Food for thought:  our military act better around our citizens than our police do.

Sadly, the military knows how to keep their... less savory people out of the limelight. That said, the Marines always seemed to have more honor and integrity than the U.S. soldiers I served with.

Marines have more criminals and crazies compared to other branches.


The only former Marine I know thinks Sarah Palin would make a great president.

Marines - you are not part of the "Core". You are part of the "Corps".

C'mon.....

No fan of Obama, but yes yes it would

Obama says good thing and does not do it
Palin says stupid shiat that should not be done

One is useless the other is dangerous

325 in the oven for about a half hour, flipping once halfway through. That way I can cook the whole package at once, rather than suffering through 6 rounds in the frying pan.

Your mama wouldn't let you enlist would she?

Dear lord, I'm 37 and my 5k PR (which I set in May) would have placed 4th among the1-9 year-old boys group.

fark that.  Start with a cold oven, put the bacon in, set to 425 and just leave it on for 25 minutes.  No flipping needed.

I'm 38 and my only 5K result to date puts me ahead of all the boys age 1-9. But Hannah Smith, 9, beat me by 10 seconds. You go, girl!

"Thanks for making me place last in my age group, you little s@#t."


Thanks for that!  I was afraid to check snopes...  I noticed that he let the kid beat him by five seconds.

Anybody who needs to flip bacon that is being cooked in the oven is doing it wrong, so very very wrong.  I decided to take my panini press and use it solely to cook bacon, works like a charm, and as a bonus, when I use the press to make a panini, it's infused with bacon fat and bacon bits.... YUMMMMMM

abhorrent1: Lachwen: One Bad Apple: Did he yell insults at the poor kid and tell him that "pain is the sensation of weakness leaving the body" ?

Of course not.  That Marine was a Lance Corporal.  You have to be at least a Sergeant to be a drill instructor.

I thought they couldn't do that anymore because it hurts peoples feelings.


In the Army the drill sergeants have been forbidden from using derogatory terms towards the recruits.  I have not heard of a similar prohibition being handed down in the Marines.
 
2013-07-31 03:23:44 PM
What happened to the kid's parents or whoever brought him?  They just ditched him and ran ahead?  I call BS here.  If it's true, then the kids parents need a CODE RED to be issued by Col. Jessup.

My CSB.

I used to be a Navy guy at a joint command and my division was about half Marines, some Sailors and  and couple of Airmen.

On the morning the Navy PT test, I noticed that some of the Marines from my division were there.  I didn't know why they were there - they didn't have to be.

When it came time for the run, each Sailor in the division had a Marine run with him, cheering him along.

Yeah, Jarheads can be pretty cool sometimes, even to Sailors.

Hah. That's my home town.  Though, I'm not sure the entire town is 5k from end to end.
