Great Quote

“There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: the Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a secondhand opinion.

I would only add that their spouses probably understand them pretty well. Or at least as close as is humanly possible.

As to my personal opinion . . . well, I think they are all magnificent madmen*, and I am sure as hell glad they are on our side.

  2. So awesome. Happy Thanksgiving.
