I'm writing a research paper on the Marine Corps and was thinking of the story that goes something like this:

a bunch of marines are on a commerical flight to somewhere and the stewardess notices that there are quite a few of these fit guys and asks one of the marines that isn't sleeping, if all of them play football for some team? The marine goes on to say that it isn't really viewed as a team, but yes, and they haven't lost in over 250 yrs. and they've never played on their home turf.

That is the most of the story that I can think of. Does anyone know the rest of it/ a more detailed version?

Actually, they've done both. They lost at Wake Island & Philippines. Ran outta ammo both times, basically.

Fought at home in the Rev. War, War of 1812 & Civil War (both sides).

No doubt there's others, I just cannot remember them.

They haven't even been around for 250 years yet.

11/10/1775

The Corps had its 230th B-Day last November.
