When someone asks you why you joined the military — do you ever just want to slap them in the face? If the answer is no, you’re reading the wrong article. This article lives in a ridiculously motivated fantasy world where the right answer sounds like this:
“Being a Marine is the greatest job in the world, what other occupation turns you into a living breathing 100-foot-tall Jolly Green Giant of death? Flying all over the world at a moment's notice to give scum bags, murderers and terrorists the business? Rain sleet or snow, I’m the mailman of judgement day!”
This and oh, so much more from a video made by the folks with Action Figure Therapy called “Why I Became A Marine.”
The video is vulgar and not at all safe for any respectable work environment and an absolute caricature of military service, delivered by an action figure with an Eagle, Globe, and Anchor tattoo on his chest, and the most out of regulations mustache we’ve ever seen on any Marine, real or figurine.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Donald Trump was reeling from sharp rebukes at home and abroad over his surprise announcement last month to immediately pull American troops out of Syria when he flew into the al Asad airbase in neighboring Iraq the day after Christmas.
Inside a canvas Quonset hut, one of the arced prefabricated structures used by the military and surrounded by concertina wire, Trump received operational briefs from U.S. commanders suggesting a territorial victory against Islamic State was within sight, but the military needed just a bit more time, U.S. officials said.
In a message to the force sent Tuesday, Adm. Karl L. Schultz said both he and the Department of Homeland Security Secretary remain "fully engaged" on the missing pay issue, which have caused "anxiety and uncertainty" for Coasties and their families.
