The United States Marine. Is there any more competent war-fighter? I think not.

Don't get you're panties caught up. It was just a joke. Half of my family served in the Corps and the other half in the Army. I put my 9 years in and have always enjoyed giving the jarheads a hard time about their association with the Navy. It obviously works quite well from your reaction. I've honestly got nothing but respect for my Marine brethren - but ya'll are easy to set off when it comes to that Navy relationship.

So cool your engines, hot-rod. We're all playing on the same team.

My Granfather fought in Iwo Jima during WWII. I couldn't be prouder. I have the highest regard for his service and yet still gave him a hard time about being the Navy's Infantry. Its all in good fun.

Hit the beach!

Taken in stride, and I never mind belonging to a department of the Navy- Somebody has to be THE MEN'S DEPARTMENT!
