Yeah. There have been SeALs and DELTA and other folks attached to a HOT ZONE, but the Marines have been everywhere else. And under certain administrations they have done so WITHOUT loaded weapons.

SO, when a Marine tells you that they have "been there, done that" you should probably pay them just a WEE bit of attention.

1,2,3,4, I LOVE The Marine Corps..!!! To all marines, and ESPECIALLY those who served as escorts to me in my time of service, on foreign soil, for covering my *$$, and pulling me out of that twisted,destroyed, Humvee. I salute you all and with tear filled eyes remember that fateful day EACH AND EVERY time I see my daughter salute the Flag of THE United States of America. I owe you more than a beer.

Don't really know, must have heard it somewhere. I do have a lot of friends and family that have served.
