    But glorified for a reason. And the Marine Corps' birthday is 10 November. I think the anniversary of the Marine Corps Reserve or something like that just passed.

    Appropos US Marines

    I discovered a USMC supporters site with a library of dowloadable pdf files on USMC tactical doctrine. Much of it is at a level higher than might be relevant to survival retreat defence planning....but there's quite a bit of useful stuff that can be gleaned and adapted for the thinking prepper.

    USMC Manuals « U.S. Marines – United States Marine Corps

    the manual on scouting and patrolling is probably the most useful

    All good natured joking aside--it takes all working together to get the job done. My hats off to all branchs--even to the squids/swabbies, doggies, puddle jumpers, and even the flyboys---lol. Thanks guys/gals---and now those who don't know what they are.
