No Former Marines From the Seahorse Magazine

Official From The Seahorse

Attention Marines! It is now official, “There’s no such thing as a former Marine.” Which, is really kind of cool when you think about it.

From Commandant, General James F. Amos (via The Seahorse): “A Marine is a Marine. I set the policy two weeks ago – there’s no such thing as a former Marine. You’re a Marine, just in a different uniform and you’re in a different phase of your life. But you’ll always be a Marine because you went to Parris Island, San Diego or the hills of Quantico.”

We at Medals of America strongly believe in honoring all of our Marines, both past and present. We have always held the utmost respect for these strong men and women, and are proud to offer our nation’s heroes a selection of Marine Corps medals and military badges to wear, displaying their duty and honor to our country. Likewise, we are excited to hear others refer to these soldiers simply as “Marines” without deeming it necessary to include the words “former” or “retired”. We agree with Commandant, General James F. Amos that once you are a Marine, you will always be a Marine. No matter what clothes you wear or what job you do, you will always be a part of that elite military brotherhood.

    This is what happens when you place an aviator in charge. The Corps I grew up in had former Marines (honorably discharged) and ex-Marine (BCD or DD). Apparently the Commandant lumps the Marines that videotaped themselves pissing on corpses in the same group that serve honorably. Nice`.

    Theres a Marine in a cell in matamoros Mexico 2 miles from the border. The consulate ain't doing squat to get him out I have no money but if somebody has cash and wants to go get him all I want is transport both ways. Lets go get this marine. Its been a long time since we've seen the halls of montezuma apparently they forgot who the hell we are.

    As a former Marine, I think I'll decide if that's what I want to be called. That frees up Gen. Amos to focus his efforts on exerting unlawful command influence on the courts-martial of active-duty Marines.
