something to think about!!!!
The Term “band Of Brothers” Has Been Used By Historians To Describe The Immensely Close Comradeship That Existed Between Combat Marines During The Difficult Days Of The Korean War. In Essence It Meant That:
Each Person Was Considered Entitled To Dignity And Respect As An Individual, But Each Had To Abide By Common Standards Established By Proper Authority.
Each Unit, Regardless Of Size, Was A Disciplined Family Structure With Similar Relationships Based On Mutual Respect Among Its Members.
Each Person Refrained From Cheating, Lying, Or Ste****g From A Buddy, And No One Failed To Come To One’s Aid In Time Of Need.
Each Issue And Problem Was Addressed, Weighed Against The Impact It Would Have On The Unit As A Whole, And Resolved. Particularly When It Detracted From The Efficiency And Well Being Of An Individual.
Each Person Contributed 100 Percent Of His Ability To The Unit’s Mission Because Any Less Effort Would Mean Passing The Buck To Someone Else.
Each Person Received Job Satisfaction, Equal Consideration And Recognition For His Accomplishments.
Each Person Realizing That Nothing Worthwhile Comes Easy, Strove To Be The Best He Could Through Hard Work And Team Effort.
Each Person In The Unselfish Atmosphere Of Common Goals, Aspirations And Mutual Understanding Shared In The Blending Of Cultures, Varying Education And Social Backgrounds.
Each Person Was Willing To Share His Eyes With Another So That He Could Learn To See Things From A Different Angle.
Each Person Knew He “belonged” And Was Fully “accepted” By Those He Worked With, Ate With, And Sometimes Died With.
To This Day, This Brotherhood Concept Continues To Make Marines Unique Among The World’s Military Organizations.
The United States Marine Corps Is Looking For A Few Good Men To Join This Brotherhood!

I did my time in Hell. Never again, lol.
So, where did the phrase "Gear adrift is gear a-gift." come from?

the same place as "there is only one thief in the Marine Corps, the rest of us are just trying to get our shit back."
