      It was somewhat "political" in nature, even though it was just a diatribe written by a Marine for people to understand how we feel about the war.

      No big deal, the opening line even told the mods they could get rid of it with no hard feelings if they felt it was innapropriate, apparently someone complained.

      It says moved though, not sure where it would have moved too....

            I appreciate the support anton and KClady both. The purpose of the post was to try and let people see things from my perspective.

            But, hey, I guess some people just don't like hearing those types of things. Not really surprised.

                Thanks Anton. I love Australia, I got to spend almost four months between Brisbane and Gladstone with a few trips to Rockhampton. Loved it there.

                    Training... We trained with the Aussie troops, lots of fun. You all have some nasty snakes and bugs down there though!

                    They called it Tandem Thrust 97, we called it Pelvic Thrust 97

                          Top notch, no doubt. Well trained, well disciplined, and ready to go. The only thing that seemed to be lacking was equipment. We had much better equipment, but we have a ton more money to spend on it too. They had a lot of American stuff, but it was the older stuff. On the ground side anyway.

                          The Aussies can, and should be, very proud of their military.

                            well there u go...

                            for about 2 yrs i was considering going inot the military...

                            and i was in cadets for 3 yrs gaining a rank of platoon seargent...

                            we trained with the army somewhat...

                            we fired weapons and all that lingo...

                            so that was cool...

                            but it is sorta sad that we have almost no money put into our military...

                            we use almost everyhting second hand and hand me downs...

                            like 2 yrs ago we bought an amazingly new and advanced fleet of F18's...

                            from france or some crap...

                            but we do try hard...



                            what do u do exactly...??

                            r u some sort of navy seal/ comando sniper??

                              no, nothing that exotic. The Marines are considered the "quick reaction force" we're prepositioned around the planet to be able to be on the ground anywhere within 24 hours. Because of this we receive a lot more training than the other services and are a lot more versatile. For instance we can drop bombs, come from the sea, and fight like mad on the ground. Traditionally the Marines are used as the first in, the strike force, and the Army will follow along or alongside depending on the scenario. After an area is secured the Army generally holds it while the Marines advance further.

                              Me personally, I am an electronics techinician, I fix radios. But again, that's part of the Marine Corps, we're all infantry, we just have "extra" jobs as well.
