  • No Ex-Marines except Dishonored Ones

    There are a couple of threads on this forum that make reference to "Ex-marines."

    The ONLY "Ex-marines" are those who had earned the title "Marine" at one time, but who have dishonored the Corps or their country by their actions, i.e., by committing serious crimes; by loss of their personal integrity; by speaking ill of their country and our beloved Corps; by betraying their country, Corps, or community; or by committing serious actions of immorality.

    Earning the title "Marine" is a life changing experience earned by hard training, strict discipline, buckets of sweat, gut level courage, loss of sleep, extreme stress, teamwork, and adherence to the Marine ethos. Once you are awarded the Eagle, Globe and Anchor, it's yours for life.

    Unless you dishonor the Corps. And then, you will become an "Ex-marine."

    Just to set the record straight!

    God bless & watch your Six!

        I agree.

        Guess that would make John Murtha an X-marine.

          Before one of you sees my username and assumes i am or was a Marine, i'll just clarify it now. I have never been a Marine and most likely won't ever be one. The name was used for an online game I used to play about 15 years ago and i've used it ever since.

          I did serve in the Army for four years and one of those was overseas.


          Lemme ask you guys another question too. I know Marines have always been the ones to look at when looking at military professionalism and hard charging. With the War in Iraq and the focus on mainly Army units in combat, do you guys think people have lost a little respect for the Corps?

          I know the Marines are over there too, but it seems like if you want to see combat these days you don't join the Marines, you join the Army.

                Tha Marines are an invasion force. The Army is an occupation force the way its set up now. Without the Marines, the Army couldnt function properly and with out the Army the Marines couldnt funcion properly.
