Ya gotta love the Marines....

Well a United States Navy Seabee, I've always been proud of the fact that we were trained by the US Marines, and during most of my duty during the Vietnam conflict, I served side by side with them...and the below illustrates why I love the Corps as much as the Navy.....even the chief over at Smoldering Embers and the Gunny at Shooting The Messenger...

Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on the Radio the other day and you'll love his reply to the lady who interviewed him Concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you Feel about Gun Laws you gotta love this!!!! This is one of the best Comeback lines Of All time. It is a portion of a National PublicRadio (NPR) interview, which is a nationally funded, left wing, liberal radio station...... Between a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to sponsor a Boy Scout Troop visiting His military installation.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going to teach these young boys when they visit your base?

GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing,canoeing, archery, and shooting.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible,isn't it?

GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised on the rifle range.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly dangerous activity to be teaching children?

GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.

FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent killers.

GENERAL REINWALD: Well, ma'am, you're equipped to be a prostitute, but you're not one, are you?

The radio went silent and the interview ended. You gotta love the Marines!
