A Cash-Strapped Corps Once Tried Training Marines With ‘Doom’War is Boring

In the mid ‘90s the Marine Corps decided Doom II might make for an excellent training supplement. It did so for two reasons—a forward-thinking commandant and a budgetary shortfall.The Marines have always had to make due with little financial support compared to the other military branches.

The rectangles represent active war game zones. In U.S. military history, this massive of a war game is unprecedented both in length and scope. In the last article, I presented this map and posed the question, why would the military make a decided effort to keep our Navy in a permanent state of readiness by conducting unprecedented and an unparalleled set of war games continuously going on off of our three coastlines and several of our overseas territories?
Guesses ranged from positioning the Navy, Marines and a fair amount of the Air Force off the coast to keep Americans from running if they are put in harms way when martial law is declared. Some believe that this has to do with preparing to begin World War III.

Shawn Weed is a Marine vet who has the most incredible testimony about hell I have ever heard! Shawn was in the Marines and was clowning around with a bunch of friends when tragedy struck.
A 90-year-old decorated World War II veteran still fighting to correct what he says is an erroneous war record may finally be getting closer to realizing his goal.
Thomas Joseph Smith, Jr., of Glenville, N.Y., who survived some of the bloodiest battles in the Pacific, said he received the shock of a lifetime when he realized military records detailing his time with the U.S. Marine Corps incorrectly indicated he went AWOL for one month during his unit’s deployment on the Marshall Islands in the early 1940s.

A former Marine from St. Cloud who lied about having fought in Vietnam was sentenced to probation on Friday and must reimburse the government for benefits he fraudulently obtained, a federal judge ruled.Four of his fellow members of the American Legion wrote letters supporting Walter Eatman, 68, according to a motion filed by Eatman’s attorney.
“As long as we have known [Walt}, he has had the interest of the American Legion, and the U.S. Veterans, ahead of anything else,” wrote Gerald A. Fairman Sr., commander of American Legion Post 183 in Fern Park.The defense argued that Eatman should not go to prison partly because he and his wife are raising their granddaughter.Eatman, known as “Walt” and “Sandman,” was sentenced to five years of probation. He also must pay the government back $53,270 for medical treatment to which he was not entitled. He could have received up to 15 years in prison.Excerpt Read more at orlandosentinel.com …
Couple Adopts Camp Pendleton Dog That Was With Their Son When He Was Killed In AfghanistanAP
The parents of Staff Sgt. Christopher Diaz adopted Dino after the 6-year-old Belgian malinois was discharged from active duty in an emotional ceremony at Camp Pendleton Saturday.Diaz, 27, was Dino’s handler when he was killed in September 2011 while rushing to help a wounded Marine during a raid in Helmand province.
After his death, Salvador Diaz asked to adopt his son’s constant companion.The Los Angeles Times said the law permits such an adoption if it will help a family with the grieving process. The adoption went through after the Marine Corps received approval from the Secretary of the Navy.Dino had to pass a test developed by military dog trainers to ensure he didn’t suffer the canine equivalent of post-traumatic stress disorder.

Gunny G’s Marines History and Traditions: Marines In OSS ~ (HOW “THE MARINES”ALMOST BECAME THE OSS, FORERUNNER TO THE CIA!)
……Due to Donovan’s recommendation that the United States establish a “commando military element,” independent of the Army and Navy, he submitted a Memorandum to the President Roosevelt stating its overall purpose and function.The following day, President Roosevelt, in non-committal language, indicated that Donovan’s proposal for development and deployment of a “commando military element” had merit and would see to it that the idea would be considered.
President Roosevelt initiated a letter to the Commandant of the Marine Corps Major General Holcomb for consideration of Donovan’s idea. President Roosevelt, how was constantly in communication with Prime Minister Winston Minister Churchill, had talked over the “commando concept,” which Churchill favored the idea.
One of the biggest questions that arose concerning this issue, was where would this notional organization be placed. In Donovan’s Memorandum to the President, he only noted the purpose of the “commando military element” and did not address where it would be placed or its organizational structure. However, a number of circumstances pointed directly towards the Marine Corps.

Here’s one I received a few years ago from Marine Jim Ratliff, now deceased.
About four or five years ago when I was new to the net, I was soliciting stories for my Marine Vignettes/Tales Of The Corps webpages. I got an e-mail from Jim about that time, and he advised that he was then putting out a newsletter for H-3-5 News which was his old company from the Korean War days. His hands were full already w/the newsletter, but his newsletter contained many stories from H-3-5 Marines; and he invited me to post the stories to my webpages, if I would like to do so.
I e-mailed Jim back, “you bet, I want them!
I did post many of the H-3-5 stories, and they are still on Gunny G’s…for anyone who would like to see them. Jim had been successful in rounding up many of the Marines and Navy Corpsmen from his old H-3-5 days.
Jim died a year or so ago, and here is one story of his own that I have had rat-holed on my hard drive and just ran across again today.

Whether U.S. Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi spends the next two decades in a Mexican prison or is freed tomorrow for mistakenly crossing the border with loaded guns all rests with an unpredictable legal process that bears little resemblance to the American court system.

On July 26, 2007, another 13 American soldiers were killed in Iraq; while Congress is on their month long vacation, our soldiers will continue dying in this unconstitutional invasion built on a mountain of lies. Kids sent into war unprepared for what it really means. The tragic results are everywhere and this is just one example: Marine: Unit Was Ordered to ‘Crank Up Violence Level’ in Iraq.

“You can’t handle the truth. Son, we live in a world that has walls, and those walls have to be guarded by men with guns. Who’s gonna do it? You? You, Lieutenant Weinberg? I have a greater responsibility than you can possibly fathom. You weep for Santiago and you curse the Marines. You have that luxury. You have the luxury of not knowing what I know: that Santiago’s death, while tragic, probably saved lives. And my existence, while grotesque and incomprehensible to you, saves lives. You don’t want the truth because, deep down in places you don’t talk about at parties, you want me on that wall, you need me on that wall. We use words like honor, code, loyalty. We use these words as the backbone of a life spent defending something. You use them as a punchline. I have neither the time nor the inclination to explain myself to a man who rises and sleeps under the blanket of the very freedom that I provide and then questions the manner in which I provide it. I would rather you just said “thank you” and went on your way. Otherwise I suggest you pick up a weapon and stand at post. Either way, I don’t give a damn what you think you are entitled to.”

WHO RAISED THAT FLAG ON IWO JIMA?

On this day in 1945, the five-week-long battle of Iwo Jima began with the invasion of the island by the United States Marine Corps. This would be one of the bloodier battles in the Pacific theater, with more than 6,800 Americans dying and over 19,000 wounded. In their honor, we raise the Corps flag on the anniversary of the first day of battle.

I can’t believe I’m writing these words: Marine Sgt. Lawrence Hutchins III is going on trial – again.
Twice, Hutchins’ conviction by a military court martial for unpremeditated murder in Iraq has been overturned due to factors precluding a fair trial. That means that twice, following Hutchins’ initial conviction in 2007, he has been released from the brig a free man.
After his conviction was overturned the first time, there were eight months of freedom in 2010. Then, on the day his wife Reyna found out she was pregnant with their second child, Hutchins, a third-generation Marine, returned to prison. Last summer, the military’s highest appeals court overturned his conviction a second time. For the past six months, Hutchins has been living with Reyna and their two children, Kylie, 8, and Aidan, 2, while teaching marksmanship at Camp Pendleton. A new baby is on the way. Now, he – and they – must prepare for a new trial, his third. Why?
BLOGGING BAD w/Gunny G: HERE’S ONE I POSTED A WHILE BACK @ A PLACE CALLED ROCHESTER…October 21, 2003
“MY APARTMENT” …by Dick Gaines
October 21, 2003
The large Marine Corps emblem that adorned the bukhead outside had stopped me cold as I rounded a curve and came upon the old building and bar named \”My Apartment.\”
Another sign outside announced \”Marine Corps Birthday Ball Every Year November 10th!\”–or words to that effect.
Inside, the young man at the bar advised me that the bar had long been/and still was owned by an older former Marine–his name escapes me at the moment.
The Marine had suffered a stroke a year or two prior to my visit, and except for Nov. 10th and New Years, seldom ever came into the bar anymore.
The bulkheads were lined back-to-back with numerous old full-size Marine Corps recruiting posters and other memorabilia from days long gone by.
There wasn\’t a bare spot anywhere in the place where something else \’Marine Corps\’ could have been hung–and the bartender remarked, \”you should see all the stuff in the basement!\” I spent considerable time examining the posters and photographs there.
Semper Fail… “Marine spokeswoman Capt. Maureen Krebs noted that while officials felt there was no medical risk involved with making the new standard a requirement, the risk of losing recruits, and hurting efforts to retain women already serving the Marines was “unacceptably high.” Thus it would appear that quotas are more important than competence.”
By Arnold Ahlert Friday, January 10, 2014
Reality and social engineering recently collided, and reality lost. Beginning in 2014, female U.S. Marines were supposed to
meet a minimum standard of three pull-ups for their annual physical fitness test. Unfortunately, when that standard was tested at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in South Carolina last year, only 45 percent of the women could meet it.

THE TRUE BIRTHDAY OF THE CORPS!
July 11, 1798?
November 10, 1775
“… When the peace treaty with Britain finally was signed in 1783, only the Continental frigate Alliance was still in commission. A small Marine guard commanded by Lieutenant Thomas Elwood stayed with the frigate until Congress decided to sell the vessel in September. With the sale of the Alliance, the Continental Navy and Marines went out of existence.”
From, The United States Marines A History, by BGen Ed Simmons…
“…As for the Marines, only the slenderest thread of continuity can be claimed by virtue of “marines” serving in the Revenue Cutter Service…There were to be Marine “quotas”…not “detachments” for there was no corps from which they could be detached…
…on 11 July 1798, the true birthday of the Corps,
President John Adams approved…establishing and organizing a Marine Corps.”
Customs and Traditions
Marine Corps Birthday Celebration
“The U.S. Marine Corps begins preparations for its “birthday party” every summer. Activities become more feverish as the fall hues arrive. By early November, every Marine is either rehearsing his role in the “party” or pressing, polishing, and spit-shining in order to appear at his or her best for the Birthday Ball. This has not always been the case, however. In fact, Marines have not always celebrated their founding on November the 10th.
Formal commemoration of the birthday of the Marine Corps began on 10 November 1921. That particular date was chosen because on that day the Second Continental Congress resolved in 1775 to raise two battalions of Continental Marines.

It’s as if the Pentagon wants the Marines to dress for surrender. The controversy isn’t over a weapon or a fighting tactic. It is over the design of the hat. Apparently they want to have a unisex hat for the Marines. Why would they need to redesign the hat if both men and women wear the same design? The new design looks like they are either French police officers or in the French Foreign Legion.
I have been submitting ideas to the military since 1970 when I submitted a satellite defense system to Nixon which used charged particle beam weapons. I resubmitted the idea in 1981 to President Reagan as a part of my Presidential platform for 1992. On my cable TV program during the late 1980′s I did a series on the military in the future. In the part about the Marines I drew a weapon I call a multi-mode because it could use an electromagnetic discharge system to throw magnetized projectiles toward targets at over 10 miles per second.
