Leathernecks? Jarheads? Devil Dogs? By any such name the world recognizes U.S. Marines as the premier warriors on the planet. Marine warriors have evolved into American icons, the warrior elite. These “gungy” American samurai, these proud patriots, live in the province of legend.
The book contains timeless Marine Corps quotations, fighting words from fighting men. The legacy is here: the history of Tun Tavern, the USMC bulldog mascot, the Commandants, the rifleman’s creed, the USMC War Memorial on “hallowed ground” and much more. Plus, the book answers dozens of questions – Air America? Blood Chit? Blood Stripe? Battle Colors? Mameluke and NCO swords?
And of course there is a “happy hour” section of slogans and terms unique to the Marine Corps. Leatherneck laughs for the Magnificent Grunts and Marine Air. This perhaps is the ultimate book for Marine warriors. Politically in-correct and proud of it – without profanity.
