Ass in the grass is always a grunt.......Jarhead is just a special breed of grunt-the meaner variety of the species

That's the way I see it. A clip is basically part of the magazine in a Garand.

Oh, Ok. For some reason, I always thought a Grunt was distintively Army.

Did Mosin get banned? His title says "user banned", but usually a title doesn't say that when someone is banned.

In the army, pretty much EVERY combat arms MOS is grunt, as per the explanation I got from my brother.

Marine grunts are, as Marlin said, combat troops that ride in leather Cadillacs as their main transpo. We riflemen proudly claim combat engineers and navy corpsman as our closest relatives in the grunt family tree.

Well yeah! Engineers keep us from getting blown up, and Doc puts us back together AFTER we get blown up. It's a parasitic relationship, it's all about keeping the bullet sponges alive. But we really do appreciate it.
