Let Have Some Fun: Army Vs Marines

since weve said all branches are equally important and needed and each plays an important role, lets talk about how the marine corps is better than the army   facts, videos, etc, etc, lets give em something to talk about ladies.. please add in with anything, im SURE im not going to be able to name everything myself.

Not that we have to do this, the army illustrates how the marine corps is better itself. Brandon talked to a recruiter about joining the army after his usmc enlistment, THEY WERE GOING TO GIVE HIM A HUUUUUUGE SIGNING BONUS, 2 RANKS - his highest rank acheived in the marine corps, Cpl, means he would join the army as a SSgt!! annnnd he wouldnt have to complete their basic training. HOWEVER, if a soldier wants to join the marine corps, he wont get **** but a ride to paris island to complete the USMC boot camp!!! which is longer, harder, etc.

Did you know that in Basic Training a recruit can pull a 'stress card' where if the Drill Sgt is in his grill, he can say "youre stressing me out" and the drill sgt HAS TO BACK OFF AND LEAVE HIM ALONE!!!

-as a basic requirement marines are required to be able to shoot twice as far. Brandon worked the rifle range in Japan, the only one, meaning the army would go and use it. Their targets were place at HALF the distance, and THEY ONLY HAD TO HIT THE PAPER! NOT THE BULLSEYE!!!!

-Marine Corps Martial Arts. Does the army even have anything like this??? Brandons about to pick up his green belt. Our men can show us how to break an arm in 2 places with one move, can a soldier do that? Not with any special job, alllll marines are taught this stuff.

-Marines guard the president (theres a reason they chose marines for this job)

-Chesty (enough said)


- and this Chesty

-sloppy Velcro vs actually sewed on .. true getting nametapes and ranks sewed on may be a pain, but theres dignity and quality in it. You know that lil flag on the arm of the army unifrom? VELCRO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 I mean lets be real! this:

............The worst part of this entire post is the fact t hat WE ARE FIGHTING OVER WHICH BRANCH OF THE AMERICAN MILITARY IS BETTER!!!!!! IT IS THE ******* UNITED STATES MILITARY WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HERE!!!!!! Probably the best if not one of the best in terms of training and responsibility. No one should give a **** about which branch is better. They all work in conjunction with one another; as a cohesive ******* force. They're not in it as a ******* contest. God! and any person who would choose a side on this matter, be you a civie or a member of the Military, should be *****-slapped the **** out of your skin. Especially the military personnel; you all know better than to take up sides. You bleed with one another every day, regardless of what branch of service.

There are so many things WRONG with your statements...I'll cover a few so I can "educate" you.<br />
#1. Lance Corp is an E3 rank. SSG is an E6 rank. That's 3 above. For him to get his E5 SGT rank, he would have to hold the E4 rank for at least 1.5yrs, then pass the ETS packet/exam and have time in service. Either the recruiter lied or you are lying...most likely you seeing as you got the rank all screwed up.<br />
#2. Not all ranges support firing at 300m - hence the paper targets that have 25m-300m targets on them. The M16 has a maximum effective range no matter who shoots it. Period. No one quals over 300m because the bullet drop makes it pointless and at 300m a person is 2 3/4" from the waist up-which is how big our targets are for 300m. on paper fired from the firing point. Let's see you hit a 2 3/4" target at 25m. (Snipers fire at longer ranges WITH diff. weapons-obviously) Oh & 25m is more than half as far as 300m as you stated...work on your Math time?!?!<br />
#3. You're right. The Army does give better bonuses. You have to be a moron to pass up the extra $$.<br />
#4. The Army gives college credits for basic training, yet not the Corps. Why...because our schools/training is ACCREDITED as the Corps. has ZERO accredited schools. (AF also) Yeah, I would pass up the $$ and the college credits also...<br />
#5. The Army gets more funding from Congress every year as it is the Largest Branch. The little Corps. gets whatever the Dept. of the Navy hands down, which is little meaning less high speed issue items/vehicles/etc<br />
#6. You actually compared ACU velcro patches to Class A's?!?! WOW!! Why didn't you show the Army Class A's or Dress Blues for that little point? Because everything on those is sewn on just like the Corps.<br />
#7. Work smarter not harder. Velcro makes sense. Sewing doesn't, but they tell the poor Marines the pride thing & they buy it.<br />
#8. Army has higher ASVAB score req. for the same jobs as the Corps. Guess we just like smarter people.<br />
#9. Our tours are way longer than a Marines. Our standard is 12-16 months, not 6 with extra pay if we go longer than that. Oh, we build the bases as well while we send the Marines to another HOT spot.<br />
#10. Our family assistance programs kill those of the Marine Corps. Now, Tricare is the same, but the Army does more for families...why...oh yeah...we have WAY MORE MONEY. But, check for yourself. Look up the Defense Budget & then try to tell me I'm lying.<br />
#11. There were only 2 basic training sites that used Stress Cards for a few cycles to see what the effect was. That program ended longggg ago & was up to the DS's if they wanted to utilize the program. Recruiting numbers were down for everyone & the Army wanted to see if Basic was scaring off civilians.<br />
#12. I didn't see any ribbons on those Marines...our Privates get 2 upon graduation from Basic/AIT. National Defense and the Army Service Ribbon. Why doesn't the Corps.?<br />
<br />
So, yes...take someone who doesn't want extra money, college credits for training, velcro to make life easier, better/newer equipment and who can say they don't have to be as smart as the Army guy to do the same job. Sounds like you should be in the Corps. too :-)

you are wrong in so many ways the marine corps quals at 500 yds. the army does not. also the pride thing thats what makwa us better. we are drivin to ignorance in boot camp, cuz we are trained killers, we go through practically a more advanced and harder combat training thatn your infantry does and thats not even to be infantry for us thats to.do.a secondary.mos. we e thebest for a reason there is a reasom we love our corps so much is because we can do more and better things than yall with less ****. and we kno what it means to wear our uniform

awh! this was my post.. all my comments are deleted off of it, cuz I deleted this account .... good times, good times ... we really had those army chicks hating us ....

here is another another one<br />
<br />
Time Check<br />
<br />
On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle. One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?"<br />
The tower responded, "Who is calling?"<br />
The pilot replied, "What difference does it make?"<br />
The tower replied "It makes a lot of difference.<br />
If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 o'clock.<br />
If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours.<br />
If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells.<br />
If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3.<br />
If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon and 120 minutes to "Happy Hour".

i found this i thought i had to share<br />
<br />
****: Through the Eyes of the Military<br />
An Army grunt stands in the rain with a 35-pound pack on his back, 15-lb. weapon in his hand, having marched 12 miles, and says, "This is ****."<br />
An Army Airborne Ranger stands in the rain with a 45-pound pack on his back, weapon in hand, after having jumped from a plane and jogged 18 miles, says with a smile, "This is good ****."<br />
A Navy Seal lies in the mud, 55-pound pack on his back, weapon in hand, after swimming 10 miles to shore, crawling through a swamp, and running 25 miles at night past enemy positions, says with a grin, "This is really great ****."<br />
A Marine, up to his nose in the stinking, bug-infested mud of a swamp with a 65-pound pack on his back and weapons in both hands after jumping from an aircraft at high altitude into the ocean, swimming 12 miles to shore, killing several alligators to enter the swamp, then crawling 30 miles through the brush to assault an enemy camp, says, "I love this ****."<br />
An Air Force NCO sits in an easy chair in an air-conditioned, carpeted office in front of his computer and says, "My e-mail is out? What kind of **** is this?"

... so that means i cant say anything mean???<br />
<br />
cause.. i pretty much wanna tear that girl a new one.

I understand you all love and support your men but If you all feel so strongly about this, uhhh why dont you join yourself??? I don't understand why u military b*tches think you can share your husband/boyfriends occupation or rank. get your own identity. In the civilian world we all laugh at you trashy idiots, and with this post you all prove we are right lmao. pure comedy get a clue.

hey this is pretty funny i hope nobody gets offended by it....:-)<br><br><br><br />

<br><br><br />

Nic always says that the main reason he joined the Marines is for the pride associated with it and that it woud be the greatest challenge. He also said the every wonderful: <br />
If you join the Army, you aren't an Army. If you join the Air Force, you aren't an Air Force. If you join the Navy, you aren't a Navy...But if you join the Marines, you will always be a Marine- Ooorah!<br />
<br />
Also, and this always makes me laugh, my friend who is in the Navy always says he's part of the "Soccer mom of the Marines" They basically just drop them off wherever they need to be :)

lol oorah for brandon! thats funny that his cousin couldnt make it so he went to the army instead.....

One of the guys I used to work with at my old factory was buddied up with me for couple of hours and we got to talking about the military. He said he had been in the Army and I mentioned Nic is a Marine. His reaction was "Oh eff that...I could handle that ****" lol<br />
<br />
Also, my cousin was in the Army and she was talking about how she was having an issue getting over an obstacle in boot. After getting yelled at for a couple of minutes, she said her drill instructor actually climbed up and helped her over it....arg

lol my man may not be the sharpest when it comes to school stuff (mostly because he cheated off me in high school lol) but when it comes to his job he is pretty damn good lol<br />
<br />
& when it comes to wars i would rather my man be a hammer atleast he knows he can kill whatever comes his way rather then having to stop & think what tool to use <br />
<br />
ooorah! :)

my hubby is an expert riffle & hand gune in the marines & also got marine of the quarter so that means he was the best out of his whole shop (squadron) for the quarter <br />
<br />
so yeah my marine can do other things too

MCAS YUMA MCAS Cherry pt<br />
<br />
woop woop shane works on jets... he wanted to do helis but he did to good in his class so they put him on jets

so i have a facebook... and i am constantly looking at buttons (called pieces of flair) and bumper stickers... i always type in marines to see what they all say.... and i love them! i always find some talking about marines and army and how one is better than the other... so this post just adds to my info... and i wish more army girls would comment... ;)

i plan to learn a lot here... you ladies have already helped with a lot of questions... so please tell me anything u feel like i should know! im all ears!

Marines are an assault force : go in, kick ***, get out. Which is fine - for some problems. The Army have plenty of kick-*** troops. But they also know how to hold, pacify, mount counter-insurgency operations, mouns support-out-friends operations. The Marines are a big hammer: do one job and do it well. The Army is a Toolbox: got a problem? We can fix it. I don't know if the Army's hammer is bigger than the Marine's hammer - but their screwdrive, chisel, soldering iron and wrench are better.<br />
<br />
honestly, all marines are, are the grunts of the military. Its infantry first, and then your job. For the army, its your job, then shoot em up. yea, their big, their bad and they can be security guards when they get out.<br />
My boyfriend is in SF in the army working on helicopter engines and also flying the *******. When he gets out, hes gonna be making 90K easy. <br />
<br />
The training for the army is better, the equipment they have at their disposal is better. Because of tour lengths, soldiers in the army spend more time fighting. You dont like their BCUs? beleive me, my soldier wears the hell outta the dress blues. Ive never seen a soldier look better.<br />
<br />
As a girlfriend of a green berret, i have a hard time thinking that anyone could be better than him. He does it all. Helicopters, infantry, missions, ect.

Ladies! I love this! I totally agree that the marines are better than the army! and you girls are doin a great job on this one! im still learning a lot about the marines... im fairly new to this... so you girls are helping me out a lot!!!! thanks girls! i love to hear about the marines are about, what they do, and i always enjoy saying the marines are the best! ;) KAYLA

They call in the Marines to fix the Army's screw ups...They go in, retake over a camp, get it running properly again, hand it off to the Army, just to be called out again in a month or so to do it all over again FOR them...That is Justin's take on the Army. lol

hahah, my lovely cousin and her hubby are combat medics in the army... She told me herself that the USMC is better than the army. She told me has so much respect for Marines and that she would lay her life down for a Marine any day and then she proceeded to tell me this:<br />
ARMY...<br />
<br />
Aint<br />
Ready to be a<br />
Marine<br />
Yet<br />
<br />
that's an oldie but holy crap i'm going to ask chris why the usmc is the best... he'll write me a novel.

well at least my solider knows how to speak instead of grunt and can sign his name instead of an putting an "X".

Two Marines boarded a quick shuttle flight out of Dallas, headed for Houston. One sat in the window seat, the other sat in the middle seat. Just before take-off, an Army soldier got on and took the aisle seat next to the two Marines.<br />
<br />
The Soldier kicked off his shoes, wiggled his toes and was settling in when the Marine in the window seat said, “I think I’ll get up and get a coke.”<br />
<br />
“No problem,” said the Soldier, “I’ll get it for you.”<br />
<br />
While he was gone, the Marine picked up the Soldier’s shoe and spit in it. When the Soldier returned with the coke, the Marine in the middle seat said, “That looks good, I think I’ll have one too.”<br />
<br />
Again, the Soldier obligingly went to fetch it and while he was gone, the Marine picked up the soldier’s other shoe and spit in it. The Soldier returned and they all sat back and enjoyed the rest of the short flight to Houston.<br />
<br />
As the plane was landing, the Soldier slipped his feet into his shoes and knew immediately what had happened.<br />
<br />
“How long must this go on?” the Soldier asked.<br />
<br />
“This fighting between our services? This hatred? This animosity? The spitting in shoes and peeing in cokes?”

K i've taken my happy pill for the day.....<br />
<br />
Marines have the pride, but Army has the longest established reputation, even if it is only a year longer....

EMO are my initials....i am the furthest thing from a dark girl...

lmaooooo @ so i had to beat her to death

lol this one kinda makes fun of the marines<br />
<br />
On some air bases the Air Force is on one side of the field and civilian aircraft use the other side of the field, with the control tower in the middle.<br />
<br />
One day the tower received a call from an aircraft asking, "What time is it?"<br />
<br />
The tower responded, "Who is calling?"<br />
<br />
The aircraft replied, "What difference does it make?"<br />
<br />
The tower replied, "It makes a lot of difference. If it is an American Airlines flight, it is 3 o'clock. If it is an Air Force plane, it is 1500 hours. If it is a Navy aircraft, it is 6 bells. If it is an Army aircraft, the big hand is on the 12 and the little hand is on the 3. If it is a Marine Corps aircraft, it's Thursday afternoon."

& another one lol<br />
<br />
During mail call one evening at Marine Corps boot camp, I received several letters from home. The drill instructor was getting irritated at having to keep calling my name. "You must have a lot of people at home who like you, huh?" he barked.<br />
<br />
"Sir, no, sir!" I shouted.<br />
<br />
"Oh, so you're calling me a liar?" goaded the DI.<br />
<br />
Trained as a Marine to think quickly on my feet, I yelled out, "Sir, creditors, sir!"<br />
<br />
The DI had to leave the room so we wouldn't see him laughing.

i was trying to help the army girls i googled marine jokes <br />
<br />
but this one made me laugh so here it is<br />
<br />
My friend, an ex-Marine Aviator wanted to show off his new twin-engine plane. I<br />
was riding along as he put it through its paces. Suddenly, we were caught in a<br />
violent thunderstorm, with lightning crashing all around us. Next, we lost the radio and most of the instruments. As we were being tossed around in the sky, George said, “Uh-oh!”<br />
<br />
Fearing the worst, I asked, “What's wrong now?”<br />
<br />
George replied, “I got the hiccups. Do something to scare me.”

lmaoooo @ let them cry in the dark!

its all in good fun :)

Are we in High School still..I realize that most of you are under the age of 21...but come on...I left high school behind over 12 years ago..I know this is all a joke...but do we really need to start immature jabbing about who's better than who???
