Marines

“Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps will pay most of your share.”
Ned Dolan

“We signed up knowing the risk. Those innocent people in New York didn’t go to work thinking there was any kind of risk.”
Pvt. Mike Armendariz-Clark, USMC

“I have just returned from visiting the Marines at the front, and there is not a finer fighting organization in the world!”
General of the Armies Douglas MacArthur, September 21, 1950 Korea

“The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps!”
First Lady of the United States Eleanor Roosevelt, 1945

“Some people spend an entire lifetime wondering if they made a difference in the world. But, the Marines don’t have that problem.”
President Ronald Reagan, 1985

“We are United States Marines, and for two and a quarter centuries we have defined the standards of courage, esprit, and military prowess.”
Gen. James L. Jones, USMC, November 10, 2000

“The deadliest weapon in the world is a Marine and his rifle.”
Gen. John Pershing, US Army Commander of American FOrces in WWI.

“Marines I see as two breeds, Rottweilers or Dobermans, because Marines come in two varieties, big and mean, or skinny and mean. They’re aggressive on the attack and tenacious on defense. They’ve got really short hair and they always go for the throat.”
RAdm. Jay R. Stark, USN, November 10, 1995

“For over 221 years our Corps has done two things for this great Nation. We make Marines, and we win battles.”
Gen. Charles C. Krulak, USMC, May 5, 1997

“I love the Corps for those intangible possessions that cannot be issued: pride, honor, integrity, and being able to carry on the traditions for generations of warriors past.”
Cpl. Jeff Sornij, USMC, in Navy Times, November 1994
