Semper Fi, proud to be a Marine.
This is a discussion on Damn Marines Hoorah within the Bob & Terry's Place forums, part of the The Back Porch category; Semper Fi, proud to be a Marine....
Semper Fi, Leathernecks. As for the punishment. No way they deserve 10 years in prison. Stupid kids..for sure...but 10 years? I'd rather see these kids have 2 years of community service, supervised by Marines. If they complete it, fine, carry on. If not, induction. Heck, we have people commit violent crimes in this country that don't get 10 years.

We, the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution.
God Bless those sea going bellhops, I spent some outings with a few of them.
Stories like this restore some glimmer of hope for our society. Good on the DJ, the furniture store, contractors and the jarheads for making this right.
As a retired squid, let me remind all you leathernecks that MARINE stands for My A** Rides In Navy Equipment. ; )

To forgive is divine.
Neither of which is Marine Corps policy.

I think those two kids should have to report to Parris Island for a lesson in humility and respect.

NOT to hyjack this thread, but this reminds me of an Episode of A&E Flipping Vegas this past saturday night of the "pay it forward house" My brother, who did the Asbestos remediation, along with many other Military members both active and retired, placed dozens of man hours and absorbed the cost to their respective Firms. My brother, who was in the Corps 78-83 gave without hesitation, along with the others, in order to give a home to a Wounded Warrior from Iraq/Afagahnistan.
All branches from the services had a hand in it. Brought tears to their eyes, and to the unsuspecting Young man and his Family.
Nothing better than giving it all, and asking nothing in return.

America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
Old People Know Stuff. Especially Those From The Great Depression.
EARTH FIRST...we'll strip mine this planet first then move on to the next world.
As a sailor it is my sworn duty to harass Marines at every opportunity. In this case I will remain silent.
Nice job Guys.
