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.

In the military, after an engagement with the enemy, it used to be customary to compile an “after-action report.”
It was an assessment of how things went. What the enemy did, what we did, what were the outcomes, and what could we have done better.
In order to more fully understand, and discuss, either The D.I. or Full Metal Jacket FMJ, I think, that information regarding that well known event in 1956 that preceded the making of the movie, The D.I. is in order.
Thus, I have provided information regarding The Ribbon Creek Incident above to include my message board posts from Marines of Platoon #71, and others with information relating to that event.Marines have always argued among themselves as to how much tougher and better, etc. things were in “The Old Corps”!
Nobody has recorded when this first began–best bet is 1775. When will it end? I would say, not as long as there is yet one Marine still standing!And such it was and has been since one night in 1956 when something now referred to as The Ribbon Creek Incident occurred. Because of that, new arguments as to whether “boot camp” is as tough as it once was, or tougher, have gone on and on without ceasing.

In July 2004, I wrote a piece titled, The Proper Role of America’s Military dealing with Reagan‘s strike on Libya in 1986. That precision strike was in response to a disco bombing in Germany killing one American GI and injuring some 50+ Americans.
Moammar Khadafy was behind that cowardly act. We bombed for 12 minutes and left. No failed, unconstitutional nation building or “winning the hearts and minds” of those you just bombed. There was only one message: Do it again and we will come back.

The last time U.S. Special Operations troops trained in New Orleans, helicopters swooped in unannounced in the darkness over the downtown area, frightening residents whose nerves were already frayed by the Boston Marathon bombings earlier that day. This time, the training hasn’t had the same effect.
The U.S. Special Operations Command confirmed Tuesday that Marines and sailors assigned to the Marine Corps Special Operations Command have been undergoing urban warfare training in the area since Aug. 19. The exercises, which were not publicly announced beforehand, are scheduled to end Friday.

I want to talk about something that’s been bothering me lately. The reader may think that I am trouncing on hallowed ground …. but first hear me out, and then beat me up.
I think the U.S. Government is behind a recent subterfuge that really irritates me. It has been eagerly picked up by an unthinking public and widely spread. It is the “Thank you for your service to our country” platitude. As a 25 year veteran, thrice combat tested, now retired, former USMC killing machine, I take exception to this patriotically veiled insincerity and urge thinking people not to use it. I shall try to explain why.
First, the statement implies ‘servitude’ and ‘sacrifice’ as does the name ‘service man’ itself. It reeks of self-abnegation, altruism, and renunciation of ones own interests in favor of those of society, nationalism and the greater good …. (mmmmmm, now it’s starting to make sense).
It connotes selfLESS sacrifice of one’s own life and values for the sake of others. I have found none of this to be true in my case, or in any of my military accomplices. . I’ll try to illustrate.

The pinnacle of military blogs was about the 2006-2008 time period. Troops were encouraged to share their Army stories and talk about their life. Sometimes it’s not pretty, but we’ve learned that most of the time it is,” said then-LTC Kevin Arata.
And he was right. The majority of stories coming from bloggers were positive because the military was a great place to be. We loved serving our country and believed in the things for which we were fighting.
New Federal Regulations Give Pentagon Sweeping Domestic Police Power
Citizens of Watertown, Massachusetts, know more than most Americans about the weapons, tactics, technology, and vehicles employed by law enforcement.
In the wake of the Boston marathon bombings, residents of Watertown were ordered by police to stay inside and then subjected to involuntary searches of their homes.
Besides the obvious violations of the Fourth Amendment’s guarantee of the “right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, Watertown citizens were eyewitnesses to SWAT officers dressed in combat gear using weapons and riding in vehicles more at home in the battlefield than suburbia.
The militarization of local and state law enforcement didn’t make its debut in the Watertown lockdown, however. For decades, police have received millions in grants from the federal government. Cash-strapped police departments and sheriffs’ offices have traded local control for new technology and martial materiel.

In 1957, the commandant of the Marine Corps, General Randolph Pate, sent a brief note to the director of the Marine Corps Educational Center, Brig. Gen. Victor Krulak, in which he asked, “Why does the U.S. need a Marine Corps?” Krulak, already a legend in the Marines, penned a lengthy reply: “The United States does not need a Marine Corps mainly because she has a fine modern Army and a vigorous Air Force. . . . We [the Marine Corps] exist today—we flourish today—not because of what we know we are, or what we know we can do, but because of what the grassroots of our country believes we are and believes we can do.”

Is It marine OR Marine?
Seems to me it was somewhere around the late ’50s or very early ’60s–I was doing duty at Henderson Hall, I recall–when there was a change to the Marine Corps Personnel Manual requiring that the word “marine” be capitalized with the the letter “M.”
I had always thought that this was not binding on folks other than Marines, although I had seen some cases where the big M for Marine(s) was used by civilians.

This week Charles Rangel, a crazy politician from New York who has recently been pushing for regulations on private gun ownership, is now putting forward a bill that would force young people to take up arms for the state, or at least work in some uniformed way to help the government with their never ending war effort.
H.R. 748 would require everyone from 18-25 to join:
“uniformed services or as civilian service in a Federal, State, or local government program or with a community-based agency or community-based entity, to authorize the induction of persons in the uniformed services during wartime to meet end-strength requirements of the uniformed services, to provide for the registration of women under the Military Selective Service Act, and for other purposes.”

But the armed services’ most senior officers now are telling Congress those impacts are not a distant prospect — they could be looking at a “hollowed-out” force within a matter of months after the cuts are triggered.

This webpage will not end such arguments, nor should it. But perhaps it can serve to bring out a few interesting points unknown to a now younger breed of Marines.

A Marine Corps survey shows 17 percent of male Marine respondents say they would likely leave the Corps if women move into combat positions.
The survey says that number jumps to 22 percent if women are assigned involuntarily to those jobs.
Results of the survey of 53,000 Marines were released to The Associated Press on Friday.
