United States Marine Corps support

I'd like to start this thread to honor and support our men in the marine corps, discuss opinions on the marines, and just talk about it. And i saw that the Coast guard had one, so what the hell?

Thanks for the new subforum pbnation!

foodstamp, i miss you... i just wanted to let that be known. and just to throw this out there, the M4 was never envisioned as a front line weapon, it just kinda won that title by default. as far as CQB weapons go, most special ops/counter terror units prefer H&K MP5s but it's a lot cheaper to stick with a common ammunition. so we got the M4, it's not the best thing out there for stopping power, but it's easier to get in and out of a vehicle with (since we've gone predominantly mechanized in iraq) and it's got more range than a shotty. speaking of which, i miss my benelli....

Rule 1: Always look fly

Rule 3: If you get shot out, ensure you still look fly

Hey guys, I'm a former Recon Marine and currently writing my memoir. I'll hopefully have something ready for publishing later this year, but for now I write every week for a blog entitled, "Pain. Suffering. Misery. Perseverance." Give it a read sometime and let me know what you think.

Also, if anyone has any questions about the Corps, Recon or Special Operations in general, feel free to send me a PM.

- Nate
