Yes, please "list a few" of the "multitudes" of your certifications. If you can, that is.well i will only speak on myself as i feel my members should speak for themselves. i myself having spent 6 years in the U.S.M.C as a reserve component to 2/23 and in that time i learned a great deal of the infantry, our tactics and the life style of a war fighter. i tend to not want to put my military experience forward as i feel "some" tend to use their background in the armed service as a "oh look at me" where as other it is a silent humble badge of honor and sacrifice, but it is a valid part of my life and im happy to have severed. due to the political climate and certain things happening here on the homefront that i could not agree with after my time was up i felt it was time to leave
i also have collected a multitude of certifications both in the corp and civ side. if you would like i can list a few
I wasn't a Marine, but served with them long ago and far away, and some of my best friends today were Marines. And you know what? None of them, not a one, would EVER call it "the corp". It's the Corps, son. Capital "C" with an "s' on the end. Marines are serious about that.
What the hell is "the lifestyle of a war fighter?"
I've been to war, but I don't know what this "lifestyle" thing is all about. Please educate me. No, on the other hand, please don't. My bullshit meter is already pegged at 10.
Fake veterans disgust me. Are you a faker?
Chisled into the black granite of the Vietnam Memorial are the names of 58,282 men and women. 445 of them were from the 1st Infantry Brigade, 5th Infantry Division (Mechanized). My BROTHERS. And when anyone tries to steal the honor that rightfully belongs to them by pretending to be a veteran I get highly agitated. Are you pretending?
Your alleged XO sure as hell doesn't know crap about combat as evidenced by his post back on page 5 of this thread.
It wouldn't suprise me if you were not really the same person.
