US Marines 

The Marine Corps may reportedly ditch its catchy, nearly 40-year-old tagline – “The Few, The Proud” – in a new ad campaign to debut next year.

 

I don’t like the idea of abandoning an expression of esprit de corps that means making a distinction in the state of mind possessed by the U.S. Marine. As a Vietnam Marine I considered, and still consider, myself one of the few proud American warriors that were truly devil-dogs, as we distinguished ourselves in many battles. True U.S. Marines possess a warrior state of mind that is evidently different from the Army, Navy, and the Air Force. That’s why we are the few and the proud!! Uragh!!!
