"Marines are about the most peculiar breed of human beings I have ever witnessed. They treat their service as if it were some kind of cult, plastering their emblem on almost everything they own, making themselves up to look like insane fanatics with haircuts to ungentlemanly lengths, worshipping their Commandant almost as if he were a god, and making weird animal noises like a band of savages. They'll fight like rabid dogs at the drop of a hat just for the sake of a little action, and are the cockiest sons of bitches I

have ever known. Most have the foulest mouths and drink well beyond man's normal limits, but their high spirits and sense of brotherhood set them apart and, generally speaking, the United States Marines I've come in contact with are the most professional soldiers and the finest men I have ever had the pleasure to meet.”

- Anonymous Canadian citizen

“The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen..... Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!"

~  Eleanor Roosevelt

“The Army and the Navy are run like traditional military services. The Air Force is run like a corporation. But the Marine Corps is a religion."

- US Navy Admiral

and then how we see ourselves
…and then, how we see ourselves:

There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and those who have met them in battle. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion.

Every Marine is, first and foremost, a rifleman. All other conditions are secondary.

The Marines are not a branch. We are a breed.

“Be it resolved, that two battalions of Marines be raised consisting of one colonel, two lieutenant colonels, two majors and officers as usual in other regiments, that they consist of an equal number of privates with other battalions; that particular care be taken that no person be appointed to office or enlisted into said battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve to advantage by sea."

marine corps culture not so lost in translation
Marine Corps Culture(not so lost in translation)

“Zero-dark-thirty I hit the silk after a firefight with COMUSHOUSECOM, came aboard, grabbed some joe, scrounged some chow, and took some grunt candy for my WIA brain housing group.”

“Early this morning, after a disagreement with my wife, I went to work, drank some coffee and ate a pasty, and took Motrin for my headache.”

“In order to uncluster our pros, you need to go VFR direct to the actual and give him the straight skinny.”

“To resolve this situation we are in, you should talk to our supervisor and tell him the truth.”

“We need to di-di to the dog and pony because it’s boo-coo klicks away and I want to buzz the slopchute first, but Mickey’s ticking and time is scosh.”

“We must hurry to the ceremony because it is far from here and I would like to eat first, but time is running out.”

“Hey, you should survey that field scarf because I could go rapelling off that Irish pennant.”

“Excuse me, you might consider returning that necktie, since it has a long thread hanging off the end.”
