I've been in the Army 10 yrs and am a SFC (Army equiv of a Gunny). I served alongside the 1st Marines in Ramadi, Fallujah, and Baghdad. Anyone who has been there in real combat doesn't fall for that inter-service rivalry bull. It's the sign of a know-nothing wannabe. Don't fall for it. Don't just spout stuff youv'e heard from others. The Army and Marines bleed together, and don't you forget it, sonny. Plus, don't claim you're a marine anything or claim any of their success unless youv'e been there.
