Murdoc has found that when time is tight for posting, put up pictures of tanks. Everyone likes tanks.


    1. LOL. Our guys must get off the ships or planes, look around, and go “Why the F does every place we go look just like this?!?”

      1. Yes, one of our favorite bitch topics back in the day. Our grandfathers went to Italy, France, and Germany – Nicaragua, Panama, Honduras, and the Dominican Republic. Even during WWII, Marines had down-time in Australia and New Zealand. All places with nice scenery, good beer, wine or booze, and beautiful women.

        Now – all places that look like the surface of the moon with zero booze and inaccessible women.

    You are correct sir. You are absolutely correct. 🙂

      1. Not much action in Africa. Somalia didn’t act up until Rangers had replaced the Marines there (and the Marines sailed away with their assault carrier and armor). A few embassy protection and evacuation missions. But no big battles in Africa (world shithole headquarters) for the USMC. All the other continents are well represented in their battle history.
