There are so many iconic moments in Marine Corps history, the flag raising on top of that list. Thank you to the greatest generation. The date 19 February 2015 marked the 70th anniversary of the initial assault by Marine Corps units on the landing beaches of Iwo Jima. It was the start of an operation that, in words attributed to Secretary of the Navy James Forrestal, guaranteed “a Marine Corps for the next 500 years.”
Can’t get rid of the Marine Corps that easily. #usmc#usmarines#marines#grunts#ww2#iwojima#flagraising#infantry
We were soldiers once, and young...
It’s not about age, it’s about mileage. When you raise your right hand and sign your life away to Uncle Sam he takes advantage of that submission. You are now government property; your basic freedoms are now pretty much gone. They push your limits. They push your breaking points. Then that becomes the norm. They say you age twice as fast when in the infantry, and I believe them lol I’m now 31 years old but some mornings my body feels as if I’m 50. However, looking back I’d do it all again if I had to. They were the best/ worst days of my life. Having said that, I am soooo thankful to be out of the Army. Civilian life is much more difficult, but in the end it’s a better fit for me.
