    Question...Why doesn't the Marines have a football team?

    Never understood why they do not play football.

    The Marines do not have their own service academy. Marine officers are trained at the Naval Academy.

    Nevermind....just found out you can be in the Naval Academy and elect Marines to play college ball.

    My uncle was in the Navy and he always talks about how the marines are a bunch of softies. I didn't know they all study together.

    If you look at the Navy's jerseys they have the squidly emblem on one sleeve and the eagle globe and anchor on the other.

    The United States Marine Corps is a department of the navy. Thus. The navy sets our budget and everything else we would get. About the softie comment. Heh!! How do you take seriously a group of people that collectively is a bunch of semen?!?! Just askin

    on submarines 200 sailors leave port and 100 couples come back.

    Why do sailors use liquid soap...it takes longer to pick up.


    An old Sailor and an old Marine were sitting at the VFW arguing about who'd had the tougher career.
    "I did 30 years in the Corps," the Marine declared proudly, "and fought in three of my country's wars. Fresh out of boot camp, I hit the beach at Okinawa, clawed my way up the blood-soaked sand, and eventually took out an entire enemy machine gun nest with a single grenade. As a sergeant, I fought in Korea alongside General MacArthur. We pushed back the enemy inch by bloody inch, all the way up to the Chinese border, always under a barrage of artillery and small arms fire. Finally, as a Gunny Sergeant, I did three consecutive combat tours in Vietnam. We humped through the mud and razor grass for 14 hours a day, plagued by rain and mosquitoes, ducking under sniper fire all day, and mortar fire all night. In a firefight, we'd fire until our arms ached and our guns were empty, then we'd charge the enemy with bayonets!"

    "Ah," said the Sailor with a dismissive wave of his hand, "lucky bastard! All shore duty, huh?"

    The grizzled, old Master Chief was in a heated argument with the Marine Major when, abruptly the Major, in a fit of pique, said, "You Chiefs are becoming more arrogant every day, you just don't seem to know your place, just who do you think you are?"

    The Master Chief mustering all his composure, calmly spoke, "Sir, all I know is that when the President of these here United States walks into a room, they don't play "Hail to the Major".
    It is error alone which requires the support of government. Truth can stand by itself.

    And the president's own (the Marine Corps Band) is who's playing the tune.

    Re: Question...Why doesn't the Marines have a football team?

    remebered a few good ones...


    Why are Navy kids so cute?
    Because their dads are Marines.



    This Marine was using the head. A Sailor walks in as the Marine is leaving. The Sailor says to the Marine "in the Navy we were taught to wash our hands after using the head". The Marine chuckles and says to the Sailor " in the Corps we were taught not to **** on our hands".



    "A Marine walks into a Beaufort SC bar and takes a seat next to a very attractive woman.

    He gives her a quick glance then casually looks at his watch for a moment.

    The woman looks at his wrist and remarks, "That's some watch.

    I've never seen anything like it before. What is it?"

    "I just got this," he replies. "It's a new military issue. It has a small computer chip which has threat detection and situational awareness."

    The intrigued woman asks, "What's so special about it?"

    The Marine explains, "It can detect any threats within a 50 yard radius and gives me an awareness of my surroundings.

    The woman asks, "What's it telling you now?"

    "Well, according to what it says, you're not wearing any panties...."

    The woman giggles and replies, "Well, it must be broken because I am wearing panties!"

    The Marine taps the face of his watch several times and says, "Aw, hell, the damn thing's an hour fast.""

    Because the Navy would have to give them a ride.
