Gunny G: Once UPON A Time There Were Generals…And Now…???

It is often lamented that the Chesty Pullers, George Pattons, Curtis LeMays, Evans Carlsons, etc. are now long since systematically (pc) weeded from the ranks…
***
Well, there were GENERALS…and there are now…well, generals…
***

For example…
***
Mrs. Puller protested to her husband citing previous trouble and controversy in Puller’s career. Puller told her, “…The important thing is the Marine Corps. If we let ’em, they’ll tear it to pieces. Headquarters won’t speak up. It’s my duty to do it.”


***
Puller was asked what he had learned here (PISC) as a recruit. He replied, “Well, the main thing–that I have rememberd all my life–is the definition of espirit de corps. Now my definition–that I was taught, that I’ve always believed in–is that espirit de corps means love for one’s military legion. In my case the United States Marine Corps. I also learned that this loyalty to one’s Corps travels both ways, up and down.
***
“Q: Now, general, I want you to assume that what is the evidence in this case is a fact. That on a Sunday evening a drill instructor took a platoon that was undisciplined and lacked spirit and on whom he’ tried other methods of discipline. And that for purposes of teaching discipline and instilling morale he took that platoon into a marsh or creek–all the way in front of his troops–would you consider that oppression?
A: In my opinion it is not.”
“Q: So, in your opinion, was this act of this drill instructor in leading his troops, under those conditions and for that purpose, good or bad military practice?
A: Good…
…I would train my troops as I thought–as I knew they should be trained–regardless of a directive.”
“Q: …I lead these recruits into water over their heads and I lose six of those men by drowning. Would you say that some action should be taken against me?
A: I would say that this night march was and is a deplorable accident.”

    REMINDER:

    “When we assumed the soldier we did not lay aside the citizen,” from then-Gen. George Washington’s June 26, 1775, letter to the Provincial Congress is inscribed inside the apse.

    How George Patton Would Handle the Muslims:
    I visualize General George Patton addressing everyone today. It would go something like this..

    To ALL those whining, panty-waisted, pathetic Citizens, it’s time for a little refresher course on exactly why we Americans occasionally have to fight wars to keep this nation great. ….See if you can tear yourself away from your “reality” TV and Starbucks for a minute, pull your head out of your ass — and LISTEN UP!! Abu Ghraib is not “torture” or an “atrocity.” Got that ?
    Islam Extemists are peaceful people? My Ass! Millions of these warped misled sons-of-bitches are plotting, as we speak, to destroy our country and our way of life any way they can.
    Some of them are here among us now.

    They don’t want to convert you and don’t want to rule you. They believe you are a vile infestation of Allah’s paradise. They don’t give a shit how “progressive” you are, how peace-loving you are, or
    how much you sympathize with their cause.

    They want your ass dead, and they think it is God’s will for them to do it. Some think if we give them a hug or listen to them, then they’ll like us, and if you agree – Then you are a pathetic dumb ass!

    If they manage to get their hands on a nuke,chemical agents, or even some anthrax — you will wish to God we had hunted them down and killed THEM while we had the chance.

    How many more Americans must be beheaded? You’ve fallen asleep AGAIN – get your head out of your ass! You may never get another chance!

    NOW GET OFF YOUR SORRY ASS and pass this on to any and every person you give a damn about – if you ever gave a damn about anything!

    DISMISSED!
    Thanks

    To ALL Who Served And Are Serving..
    Please Pray For Our Troops And Leaders.

    God Bless America … Land That I love
