The new campaign is "Protect what you earned." And call me motard, but sometimes I don't think you really REALLY know the level of motherfuckin ROCKSTAR you are. Yes, I'm talking to YOU Marines...you don't fully grasp the level of fucking badassery you've achieved. This could go for anybody that's SERVED in the U.S. Military...but WE...those of us that got THIS on our chest...we took it to the EXTREME. We didn't say "I'm gonna join the military," we said something different. We said "I'm gonna EARN the title of UNITED STATES MARINE," and then we did that shit! We look up to these movie stars, music artists, and millionaires...but they make movies, videos, and take pics portraying US! Have you ever thought about that? Have you ever looked at the history of heroes in this country and realized you wear the same shit everyday that they once wore? You ever talk to someone and they say they wish or would have joined the USMC? To you, it's an every day job...but to THEM, it's something they say they WISH they'd have done. If you don't realize what you are, that's cool...because one day you will. You'll look back on this shit and be all like "I am a U.S. Marine," and notice I said "am." Because there is no "was." Once a Marine, ALWAYS A FUCKING MARINE. Some people spend a lifetime wondering if they made a difference in this world...Marines don't have that problem.
Ron Reagan said that shit...and you know what? He was right. Happy Saturday devils, and if you see me out anywhere in these streets of SD tonight, yell out "Ol' Dirty Gunny," and your next round is on me! You earned it.
