I love being a Marine wife. If anything, I can say it's very intertaining. So out here we drove to a local Army base to visit the commisary... Now out here the Army and Navy's bases are manned by some private security company (something I still think is totally bazar). Anyways, so as we drive up to the sentry, i'm shuffling around to find my ID (they require 100% ID card checks) and I read barking... Not dog barking, but like a person barking.
"Marines are about the most peculiar breed of human beings I have ever witnessed. They treat their service as if it was 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 was 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 SOB's 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, of the United States Marines I've come in contact with, are the most professional soldiers and the finest men I have had the pleasure to meet."
