I have thought about this and these are awesome. I've been thinking of becoming a marine when I'm older and this was very inspiring. Thank you for your time and effort for writing this up so people like me may see it and others will know what the marines do and are all about.

I love my marine boyfriend. I can't wait to get married and have a military wedding, it's been my dream since I was a kid. PS these quotes are great!!

I made my son a bib at my husband's last homecoming that said "I'm so excited to meet daddy, I pooped!" haha everyone loved it.

Those are awesome! My favorite is "Sexually Deprived For Your Freedom! Oorah!" hehe

My boyfriend is a Marine and I love all of these comments and that all of the military loved ones left behind are all so supportive of each other, it is absolutely incredible. Though my boyfriend is not over seas he is still a long way from home and I miss him more than anything!<br />
OORAH

I love these! :) I'm engaged to a Marine, and I couldn't be more proud to call him mine. My favorite quote is kind of a parody of the rifleman's creed:<br />
"This is my Marine. There are many like him, but this one is mine."<br />
<br />
Thanks for sharing these! :)

yea some of my favs are....i wear glass slippers and he wears combat boots...and i traded in my pearls for his dogtags

yea those shirts we cute im gunna have to get the one that says "im the present daddy gave mommy before he got deployed. my boyfriend and i found out i was pregnant a week before he left for afgan for 7 months. and my favorite saying is "some heros wear capes, my hero wears combat boots.."

Use protection date a marine.

Well swimmerguy it sounds like you already have the Marine mentality. It's tough finding a significant other when you are a Marine. Someone who wants you for you and not because of the uniform or the benefits. There are so many women who thinks it "looks cool" to date or marry a Marine because they can say "he's a Marine", because he looks good in his dress blues.....or whatever else.<br />
<br />
But many of these FMG's (fake Marine girlfriend) jump ship when it gets hard. And it is hard. Deployment dates pushed forward, or extended out, cancelled leave, change of MOS.....the list goes on and on. <br />
<br />
I don't mean to burst your bubble. What I am saying is if you find a strong woman who will stand by you through that, treat her well. Many of the girls in this group are amazing and their Marines treated them like **** and didn't realize what they had. <br />
<br />
Don't do that. Know that a woman who will love and stand by her Marine is a one in a million find. Love her and treat her well and she will love you more than you ever thought anyone could.

I was married from '69 - '79, roughly my service in the Marines and she was a Marine and outranked me and 1yr 3 mons older, :-0. Tough as nails, but my service in "Nam broke us up. She barely kissed me goodby @ the airport in Jacksonville, N.C., cold lips and she 99% knew that I would come back in coffin!!! It's hard to do your duty when U have attitude like that "Back at home". I never met a man that waited "back at home".

lol, thats why people join the marines, is to prove themselves, and that almost always means in combat, thats what sets marines apart from every other branch, and that why i enlisted... we need to be ready to give our lives for any of our brothers in arms without hesitation, although the MOS i got isnt combat oriented, i will end up volunteering for combat because as a marine, it would be my duty to do whatever is needed help mike and alex and everyone else,,,<br />
on another topic, i loved the quotes, and i dont have a significant other yet, so i'm lookin at a long haul in the marines, hopefully no less then 14 years

It sounds like Alex and Mike have a lot in common, actually most Marines I know are like that. Whereas most guys run from a fight the Marines run to it. As much as we don't want them to!

I didn't mean other songs...I was typing an email to Mike about songs...I meant "so he can come out on the other side" oops....

I totally get what you mean. Mike is upset that he hasn't gotten the chance to "prove himself" yet. He wants to get involved in the thick of it so he can come out on the other songs. He always tells me that if he can't come back it is because he gave his life so that another Marine could come home.

Awwwww......so sweet Oceanside! I love the baby shirts. Seriously check out the sgtgrit website. They have some really cute girlie clothes and lingerie. <br />
<br />
Audacity it sounds like Alex is an amazing man, and very brave. Makes you proud, doesn't it?

oh! speaking of baby shirts, i saw one and it said "I was the present Daddy gave Mommy before he got deployed" i was like...AWWW!!!!! lol it was adorable, yet sad at the same time! and they had a bunch sayin "move over, I'm here to meet the man behind the voice" and "i'm here to meet my Daddy" they were cute.

I know, me too.
