And people say the Marine Corps has a PR machine!
My grandfather, a member of the US Army Ranger Hall of Fame, used to gripe "every hill in Korea the Marines ever passed, they stuck a camera on top."
If you judge the Navy by their commercials, the entire service consists of two things: SEALs and fighter pilots.
Why? He is correct in many ways. The term "elite" came to be associated with the Corps by way of some advertiser......and Scout is also correct when he states "and it's a marketing tool they've used to great effect."
Besides, WE all know what ARMY stands for -
A - Aren't
R - Ready to be
M - Marines
Y - Yet
(now remember...this is all in good fun people)
I knew I could count on a reply from you! Good reply and all in good fun....or so I hope.
Didn't you say your Grandfather was a member of the US Army Ranger Hall of Fame some where on this thread....?
Without knowing anything else, I would say that is some one to admire!
I would admit to being intersted in hearing some of his exploits....
