In the U.S., the term "Marines" referred to an Individual who served in the United States Marine Corp.
"How many Marine does it take to change a light bulb? Two. One Marine to change the bulb and the other proceed to tell everybody 'how HARDCORE it is to change a bulb.'" <---- This pretty much summed up the Marines. Are they asshole? Yes, but when shit hits the fan, they are pretty much our best bet at clearing it up.
Shit hitting the fan.
So, all the Marines in the Land of the Free rejoiced over the fact that there's some Shit to be clear up. They packed their M16A2, Korea-era radio, and handed-down vehicles, because they weren't as fortunate as the soldiers that lived down the block, thus proceed to clear up.
The clear up is still going on.
Semper Fidelis, Always Faithful.
So there are two Marine Corp Recruit Depot, Parris Island, SC and MCRD San Diego, CA.
