    WE ARE WHO WE ARE!!!!!!!!!!! THAT'S THE FACTS, JACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    "The man who will go where his colors go without asking, who will fight a phantom foe in the jungle and mountain range without counting, and who will suffer and die in the midst of incredible hardship without complaint, is still what he has always been, from Imperial Rome to sceptered Britain to democratic America. He is the stuff of which legions are made. … His pride is in his colors and his regiment, his training hard and thoroughly, and coldly realistic, to fit him for whatever he must face. … And his obedience is to his orders. He has been called UNITED STATES MARINE."_ ~T.R. FERENHOCH, 'THIS KIND OF WAR'__Ben Weihrich__Texican by Birth__MARINE by Choice__USMC '69 – '75__Graduate of Saigon "U"
