USMC Force Reconnaissance
We will never quit. We will persevere and thrive on adversity. Our nation expects us to be physically harder and mentally stronger than our enemies.
If we get knocked down, we will get back up, every time. We will draw on every remaining ounce of strength to protect our teammates and to accomplish the mission.
We are never out of the fight.
The Hornets Nest
Watched this film last night. It was amazing. It really captures what some Americans may not know. The film is about a father and son reporter who tag along with a variety of military units including U.S. Army 101st Airborne, and a company of U.S. Marines. It all about U.S. military, particularly service members as they fight for the guy next to them. They fight to try to go home at the end of their tour. The focuses is on their war, their legacy. It may be hard for some service members to watch, but as a civilian…I think other civilians should watch it. It may change your opinion forever. With my connections to the military, I find that this is the reason I want to serve, this is the reason I am in ROTC. People may say, oh you just think your tough. Its not about toughness. Its about representing these men, and showing the respect to them, the military, and my country.
This soldier has been thru Survival School & learned his lessons well. He’s giving the sign of “coercion” with his left hand. These hand signs are taught in survival school to be used by POW’s as a method of posing messages back to our intelligence services who may view the photo or video. He was obviously being coerced into shaking hands with her. It’s ironic how little she knew that he would so inform us about the photo-perhaps because she’s never understood our military to begin with.
Snopes on that true sh*** game bruh
Wait this is true?
God I love my Army
IM LAUGHING SO HARD. MY FRIEND KNOWS THIS GIRL WHO HAS SOME OLD YEAR BOOK FROM MARSHALL H.S. AND SHE FOUND LEONARDO DICAPRIO AND THIS IS HIM FROM WHEN HE WAS A JUNIOR AND HE LOOKS LIKE A FUCKING 9 YEAR OLD
That’s because he was. Di Caprio was 10 when he graduated High School. A genius with an I.Q. of 144, Di Caprio completed college at 14 before beginning his acting career. He has two degrees, a Master of Engineering and a Sociology B.A.
Di Caprio also notably invented the antenna which makes modern cell phones work while he was still in school. The profits allowed him to try out acting, his ideal job and meet Gus Van Sant, who cast him in his first role. That lead to Titanic with James Cameron, for which Di Caprio doubled as a scholar on the physics of how the ship broke apart.
But none of that is squat compared to his work on the SD card. Still in college, he developed with two others the miniaturization technology that makes the SD Card so small, and for that work he was granted a Nobel Prize for Physics and Engineering in 1998, the same year he failed to earn an Oscar for his work in 1997’s Titanic.
Di Caprio mostly acts today, but in his spare time he’s working with Harvard’s Engineering department on a computer chip that will teach computers how to fix themselves from viruses and crashes, and even data erasure from solar flares or other magnetic phenomena. If successful, this too will not be eligible for an Oscar.
He’ll simply never get one. It’s sad really.
