It’s why we join the Marines.
Seriously — people join the Army to be all they can be, while others join the Navy to see the world.
And folks join the Air Force to get a technical education or to pay for college.
But by and large young men tend to join the Marines in order to kill some motherfuckers and to blow shit up.
It really is that simple.
This was lifted in its entirety from the explicitly gay, often raunchy, always entertaining blog, "Bill In Exile." It's definitely Not Safe For Work, but I thought this post was too good to not share. When Scott (the blogger) talks about Marines, it's firsthand and always worth the read.
