Quote of the Day: Full Metal Jacket

Today, you people are no longer maggots. Today, you are Marines. You’re part of a brotherhood. From now on until the day you die, wherever you are, every Marine is your brother. Most of you will go to Vietnam. Some of you will not come back. But always remember this: Marines die. That’s what we’re here for. But the Marine Corps lives forever. And that means YOU live forever.

[Note: Being a Navy veteran, it killed me to type that quote. But, with tomorrow being Veteran’s Day, it felt appropriate. Just substitute “Marine” with “Veteran” and the sentiment remains the same. Thank you to all Veterans, no matter what branch, and their families for your service.]
