who has the benefit of the doubt
An Army grunt stands in the rain with a 35-pound pack on his back and a 15-pound weapon in hand, after having marched 12 miles, and declares, "this is ****!"
An Army Airborne Ranger stands in the rain with a 45-pound pack on his back, weapon in hand, after having jumped from an airplane and marched 18 miles, and says with a smile, "this is good ****!"
A Navy SEAL lies in the mud, 55-pound pack on his back, weapon in hand, after swimming 10 miles to shore, crawling through a swamp and marching 25 miles at night past the enemy positions, says with a grin, "this really is great ****!"
A Marine, up to his nose in the stinking, bug-infested mud of a swamp with a 65-pound pack on his back and a weapon in both hands, after jumping from an aircraft at high altitude, into the ocean, swimming 12 miles to the shore, killing several alligators to enter the swamp, then crawling 30 miles through the brush to assault an enemy camp, says, "I love this ****!"
The Air Force NCO sits in an easy chair in an air conditioned, plush, carpeted office and says, "My e-mail's out? What kind of **** is this?!"

That story is crap. A Marine would never say "I love this ****!"
I pissed and moaned every spare second I was among other NCOs. I miss the infantry and I miss the Corps. The irony.

Funny stuff!! I disagree with inherit though..I can remember many times saying "I love this ****"!! I guess different strokes for different folks..

I did too Doc, it was a joke. The point I was trying to make is that Marines, and grunts in general, bitch quite a bit. Semper I.

You are forgetting the fat turds that are on board the navy ships. Makes me sick to see some 300 pound tub of lard in a uniform.
BTW, you are comparing a seal to a marine??? LOL

FAST is a Marine unit specializing in counter-terrorism and Military Operations on Urban Terrain. Dropping onto buildings from a helicopter and shooting everyone inside. Stuff like that.

An Army Green Beret stands in the middle of 20 non-English speaking guerillas that he and his team mate, the only two Americans within 100 miles, just spent 4 weeks turning into a bada$$ fighting unit, in the middle of a country that is so small it doesn't even show up on most maps, with a 110-pound pack on his back, weapon in hand, getting ready to go out on their first mission, and says grimly, "let's go find the ****!"

I have had the privelage to train all these guys Fast force anlico scamps and seals. They are all a special breed for sure.
I remember being a boot in the field with it raining and sand down my crack my smokes all wet, and saying I hate this shyt. Then now all I have is good memories of all that shyt my bro's and the bond that Marines have above anyone else. Semper-Fi

I love it Doc...pretty funny....reminded me of one my grandfather used to tell.......
Three men from the armed services are sitting around drinking and arguing over who is the baddest of the bad...........
A Marine Srgt. stands up and declares there's only one way to prove who is the baddest and tells the others too walk with him...............
The first marine they come too the Marine Srgt. yells........."Marine!......take that jeep and run it into that tree!" The marine does as he's told and "BLAM" hits the tree with the peddle too the floor. The Marine Srgt. declares "Now that's a bad ass...Marines win!"
The Army Srgt. says..."PLease, that's nothing"...Seeing an army private yells "Private!.....run that tank off that cliff there". The private does as he's told and "BLAM" drives the tank off the cliff. The Army Srgt. says "Now THAT's a tough SOB!.........Army wins!"
The Navy guy looks at both the Army and Marine Srgts. and says "That's nothing....come with me". They follow him down to the docs and he spies a navy man in the crows nest of a destroyer and yells "You...yes you....jump out of that crows nest into the water!"...............the guy in the crow's nest yells back "**** you buddy!"............the Navy guy says to the Srgts. "Now THAT's a tough SOB to tell an Admiral to go **** himself.....Navy wins!" hahahahahahahaha
