#1 You mean like sending a fire team of Marines in a Jeep down to the edge of Cholon to get three American Nurses out because they couldn't trust the streets? The nurses just had a telephone during Tet and asked for help. That was fun ( once we got clear) and very exhilarating.
( Gunny sez: I need three Volunteers..you, you..and you)

Better than football.

#6 When the Commandant of the Marine Corps states publicly that paying forward to support real time actions at the expense of future readiness (sequestration effect) , I have to wonder if "...getting the Marines ready to deploy..." anywhere in two years will even be an option.
