On our 244th birthday, I would like to thank WG for the recognition in game to the history of the US Marines and their service along side the US Navy.  To those who came before us and to all the future recruits, Semper Fi Marines.

It's interesting how our uniformed services have split and how they are still integrated too. The Marines began as Navy soldiers. Navy Corpsmen are still assigned to the Marines as medics. The Air Force used to be the Army Air Corps and still shuttles the Army around the world.

There are two other uniformed services. Of course, we can't forget the Coast Guard, which began as a lifeboat rescue service. However, there is another uniformed service that many forget about. The U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps is a team of nearly 7000 medical officers who also serve the country. Many Public Health Corps officers serve attached to the Coast Guard.

WARNING: This video contains much offensive language and much vulgarity. Even so, Al's story is absolutely compelling, historic, and even emotionally touching if you watch all the way to the end.

Al relates his boot camp experience in San Diego, infantry training at Camp Pendleton, travel to Vietnam by troop transport ship, training and R&R in Okinawa and his horrific combat experience in the First Battle of Khe Sanh (often referred to as The Hill Fights).
