Army Navy game was today.
« on: December 01, 2007, 09:24:49 PM »
Army got whooped. I mean ass whooped. Now I am a Marine not a squid, but a few jarheads come out of the Naval academy since we don't have one of our own. So I will root Navy only when it comes to the academies.

Yeah NAVY!

Though they do not like to admit it the Marines fall under the Department of the Navy. Yes there is a Commandant of the Marine Corps, but he falls under the Secretary of the Navy. Which is why I doubt they will ever have their own academy.

Besides, why do you think they are dressed so good. Have you ever seen a Bellhop dressed poorly? :LMAO:

the Marine Corps is the MEN's department of the Navy.  Congrats to the squids.   :LMAO:

lol @ ^  Thanks for the congrats.

GO NAVY , nice win.   By the way every member of the student
body at Academy has to go through all 3.5 years the same...if
im not mistaken during the summer of the Junior year or maybe
it was some part of the Senior year.....anyway all students at
that point are asked "do you want to be a marine officer or a
Navy officer?"  , there are many  students that prefer to
be a "marine" officer , in fact so much so they take all the
students who selected marine.. and at some "break" in the year
they go through many tests to try and get accepted into the
marines as an officer, because every year there are more who
want to be a marine officer then their quota allows them to
take....they might have 150 or so that want to be a marine
officer but that particular year their might be a quota set at
50.....so there is the extra "special training and testing" so
they get the best 50 out of that 150....ok ill slow up on the
coffee now and stop rambling.  Cheers.

that really sucks.  It's not like the Marine Corps has a limit on officers.  And the ones coming out of the Naval Academy are the best.  Not trying to take them from the Navy, but if they want to be Marines and get forced into the Navy, their heart may not be it and they will not be as good of an officer as they could be.
But it's not like the military needs any officer to begin w/, right Chief.  I made a friend w/ a 1st Lt., who let me read his thesis he wrote which spelled out how the Marine Corps would function and succeed w/o officers, not to mention the money it would save.  It was not well received w/ the other officers, but there was no argument against it that I could see anyone really making.   :LMAO:  But really he's right.  A 20 yr Chief/Gunnery Sergeant is going to be told how to perform his job by a 1st year Lt.  No thanks.  A 2nd Lt. in the Marine Corps w/ <1 yr makes more money than a 17 yr E-7 or Gunnery Sergeant.  What a waste.

I agree with almost 100 percent of everything you said
there aftr. That being said I just remembered something.

That "special training and testing" that I mentioned well
that is the complete "O.C.S." school that potential Marine
corp. officers who did not attend the academy have to
make it through.....and it is full of a bunch of yelling
Gunny's (lol) , My point is that with the Marine corp.
ocs school they are taught how to be a "grunt" first
and leader second....those who make it through and
become 2Lt. in the Marine's I must say that I would
follow them into combat if need be and would follow
their orders.....as far as the rest of the branches
officer's I cant say the same, and especially im sorry
to say alot of naval officers who could not find their
own ass with 2 hands a map and a flashlight.

Chief.

I know that OCS is E-6's and E-7's training the officers, and most do turn out well, but nothing replaces OJT, and a E-7 has years of it.  It's like fighters.  I'll bet on the guy w/ 40 career fights than the one w/ 10 b/c he has experience.  Same thing w/ pilots and flight simulators.  Real pilots ask about your flight time, and laugh at your sim time.  And I talked to Gunnery Sergeant's and Officers and OCS is not that physical.  It is really about stress and education.
that is the funniest quote I have heard in a long time.  I need to remember that for our COD4 nights.   :LMAO:

well remember our bootcamp? now you know that
when you go to bootcamp you are tested for physical
endurance, not only to see if you are "in shape" but
when worn out from physical exertion... and hungry
and have gotten little sleep
if any sleep at all ...this is where your true mental
and stress coping abilities are tested, see if your
going to quit or not and that was
just for us...imagine how much more intense it would
have to be if you have
the potential of being a platoon leader in the fleet
in a combat leadership role wouldnt it have to be?
Now I can see education
towards the end of training....but ..after all why spend
the time training you if they dont know if your
going to "freak out" or not if your a leader that
has a pretty good chance of being in a war zone.

Im sure it had its fair share of "crucibles" , that I
know we can agree on....by the way..I ask every
marine this....After you finished your crucible and
you were handed your eagle,globe and anchor did
you choke up and shed a tear or two ?  :)*

nah, I never cried or anything.  But I went through boot camp w/ a child hood friend and he was bawling.  I don't know, we all get choked up on different things.  Maybe I was too scared I would get thrown off the mountain if I did.  (hollywood Marine here).  It's really not that sad.  I mean, they played "proud to be an American" and all, but you don't feel like crying, you just stand about a foot taller and feel really, really proud about what you just accomplished......and then realize you still have 2 more weeks until you officially graduate.   :LMAO:

oh wow, yea I got "cycled" many times to that song
as well, must be in the bootcamp training manual then
lol....

And also didnt realize still 2 weeks to go after that...
Thought it was the crucible and then the warrior
breakfast , throw the Uniform on and get ready to
graduate and move on.  I can see how that does
make a difference, still 95 percent of those ive
asked did shed a tear, so my only conclusion
is that your just a badass.  :biggrin:

I'm not a badass, just emotionless.  I have yet to cry at a funeral, from my same age cousin @ 9 yrs. old, to my grandpa that I loved liked a father.  I just don't cry often (not saying it doesn't happen).  Good thing the wife knows this.
We did do the warrior breakfast and all.  But yeah, I remember getting smoked (PT) by the drill instructors all those two weeks b/c they said we thought we were already Marines.  One platoon got smoked wearing their alpha uniform that we were graduating in during dress rehearsal.  Poor blokes.

man...didnt know about them 2 weeks and I thought
that when you got handed the eagle,globe and anchor
is when you officially went from a worthless nobody to
being a Marine.  I can understand how guys would be
acting like they were marines....maybe they thought
thats what it meant too....anyway sry for hijacking
the thread here......I wonder how many on the
Navy football team that just beat army are seniors
or will be returning next year...

I cried thru half of my crucible, but I hyperflexed my knee and tore 2 ligaments and a tendon at PT 2 days before the crucible started. I was not about to go to the med platoon then graduate months later, so I didn't tell anybody about the injury until my senior drill instructor handed me my EGA. I got my own little recruit at the warriors breakfast to carry my tray since I was on crutches. The day after graduation I had surgery on my knee. They let me finish the last week week without going to med platoon.
