Hey soldier, is that a log in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

"i doubt he could fit that in his pocket"

I bet he could. Have you seen the pockets on those uniforms?

Oh, ok, I see what you were asking. We don`t have anything like that. The only ones I know of who rate wearing Marine uniforms would be US Navy Corpsman (medics) or Chaplains. The USMC doesn`t have our own, we use US Navy medics and Chaplains. When they`re attached to one of our units they have the option to wear our Desert/Woodland MARPAT camouflage as well as Service (Khaki Blouse/OD Green Trousers) uniforms with their US Navy rank insignia modified for use with the USMC uniform.

Other than that, the only uniform items shared between services are certain medals/ribbons. Marines and Navy also have similar Pilot/Jump Wings and things of that nature but that`s really it.

Not quite what I was thinking of. The RMC all arms course is more like RMC testing for other soldiers. Those who pass earn the right to wear the same colour beret as a royal marine, regardless of what unit they`re in. It doesn`t make them a royal marine, but it`s a definite achievement.

It`s the military way. I recently watched some stuff on artificial limbs being used in a military hospital/rehab centre here. They had interviews with some people who were being treated there. There was inter-unit competition, things like seeing who`d walk again first. Friendly competition is useful.

@Angilion maybe they dont have the right equipment/weights for the guy on the bottom to lift his max. it`s possible that the bottom guy is bench pressing the top guy who is holding a log stable for extra weight.

@Angilion Yes, Marines are not called "soldiers" we`re only referred to as "Marines" Same with British Royal Marines and Republic of Korea (ROK) Marines.

I have no clue what the hell these guys are doing in the picture, never seen anything like it before.

whodat6484:

My idle curiousity has popped up a question you should be able to answer. Is it possible for people from other parts of the USA military to test themselves against USA Marine Corps standards? I`m asking because it`s possible here in the UK - the Royal Marines run the All Arms course for, as the name suggests, all arms of the military.

So...marines aren`t soldiers? What are they, then? Carpenters?

Why is there someone else under him? Is there something I don`t know about bench-pressing logs that makes it a good idea to have someone under you while doing it? A strong person each end to take the weight if necessary, certainly. That`s very sensible. But underneath you?

People have the right to say whatever the f**k they want, it`s a free country. If you`re gonna say/type something, you might as well do it right. To quote a Marine interviewed for HBO`s Generation Kill, "You have the right to say whatever you want and we have the right to punch you in the f**king mouth if we disagree."

Those are Marines, they`re wearing Woodland MARPAT, only Marines wear that, not soldiers. I`m a Marine and you better fix that caption because Marines get really angry if we`re referred to as "soldiers" or "army"

Yeah, that`s the Marine corps. The Army can barely work out with resistance bands.
