Default Calling All Devil Dogs

Just wondering if there's any current or former Marines out there.

I was 84 to 88

Boot camp: San Diego ("The land that God forgot..The sand is 20 inches deep, the sun is burning hot")

School: MCEES, 29 Palms CA. (Field Radio Operator)

Duty Stations:
First: HQ. Company-Echo Battery-2nd Battalion-12th Marine Regiment-3rd Marine Division-Camp Foster, Okinawa, JAPAN

Second: HQ Company-1st Tank Battalion-1st Marine Division-Las Flores-Camp Pendleton, CA.

Once a Marine, always a Marine! Semper Fi! Do Or Die!

Hey ChicanoAngel What's up Watchdog? Went to Korea twice with the Marines..Team Spirit and Bear Hunt back in the late 80's.

Beautiful forest and mountains, beautiful women too. Being in the field all dirty and mamsan would show up with egg sandwiches, moonpies and cokes...man what a feast! Is it still like that?

I was up around Uncheon (not to be mistaken for Inchon) also went to Pusan, Pohang and of course Seoul..had some good times. Used to grind on ...what was it called?? Yak Man Doo?? Those deep fried shrimp and vegies, umm..that was some good grinds..with catsup. And kinda gotta like-ing for Soju and kim-chee too.

Later dog..keep those eyes peeled and watch put for them barking spiders..they bite....j/k..keep up the good work homie.

Apache

[b] Well OMG I went threw 3 months of blood sweat and tears to EARN the title Marine (Devil Dog) didnt know all I had to say is that Iam a pussy and dropped out of bootcamp then log on to this site and be pronounced a Devil Dog ! Well there new Devil Dog (lol) glad to see your proud to be called a Devil Dog but if you were to be accused of being a Devil Dog um would there be any evidence to back it up??? I know the answer and Iam sure you do as well I take big offense to this as anyone who puts on the Eagle Globe and Anchor every day to defend this great Nation of ours .I wasted enough time on this but one last thing you wouldnt even rate to be called a Devil Pup a big freaking OOHRAH to my fellow Marines Semper Fidelis and keep Hard Chargeing.....

Seargent of Marines !

just so u know i didnt drop out of boot camp.

but it is cool. your commments dont bother me. nothig i havent heard before.

so u keep fighting the good fight u r told is good.

when the fights comes to the actual NORTH AMERICAN SOIL i will be there defending my continent.

BUT GOOD LUCK OUT THERE AND STAY SAFE AND KEEP A WATCHFUL EYE ON YOUR 6. but being a sergeant i am sure u know that already.


and just so u know in the club a few months back there were few marines confronted by a big bunch of negros and were out numbered but ya know were i was at? well me and my other homey. we were right there dogging down the negros right along side of those marines who we didnt even know and werent even the same race as us.

so it is not like i dont respect the Marines.

and i will leave the battle crys for ta'll to say. since i have not won or ever earned the right to say them

Good to go I got a lil hot headed hommie we just dont throw that term around for nothing! The name Devil Dog was given to us by the GERMAN SOLDIERS WW1 at BELLEAU WOOD! "Devil Dogs"

In the Belleau Wood fighting in 1918, the Germans received a thorough indoctrination in the fighting ability of the Marines. Fighting through supposedly impenetrable woods and capturing supposedly untakeable terrain, the persistent attacks, delivered with unbelievable courage soon had the Germans calling Marines "Teufelhunde," referring to the fierce fighting dogs of legendary origin. Urrrhhh Raaah!

Take care ...

it cool. but yeah i know the history behind the name as well.

i have studied many battles and wars. some i just touch base on and some i go into deeply if it lieks really sparks my interest.

but i wasnt trying to disrespect or anything.

homey APACHE there was/ is a devil dog. and he was the one that honorated me as one. i didnt ask to . i was just going along with him. as a light heartedness.

lie i said i totally respect the soldier. while i mgiht not like the fight. i doesnt mean i wont back those that do the fighting.

peace out then and liek i said careful out there.

Hey chicano_n_blues,

It was all light and not to be taken seriously....yeah I served my 4 yrs. with honor and distinction and I AM a former "Devil Dog"...but we were just clownin'....

P.S. You are right about what it takes to become a Marine......but again remember....the term I used to clown with Nelio was ..."Honorary"...

Semper Fidelis my brother,

Apache

I read in the newspaper the Iraqui's have given the Marines a new nick name "Angels Of Death". I wonder how or why that name but the article also stated they fear having to fight the "Angels Of Death" more then having to fight the U.S. Army.

ONLY THE DEAD HAVE SEEN THE WAR!


My love, you are strong
and you will do well in life,
I love you and my children deeply,
Today and Tomorrow,
let each day grow and grow.
keep smiling and never give up,
even when things get you down.
So, in closing, my love...
...tonight, tuck my children in bed warmly.
Tell them I love them for me...
then hug them for me...
...and give them both a kiss goodnight for Daddy.

In loving memory to all those FATHER'S THAT FELL IN WAR! IN SAMALIA...
AND LEFT FAMILY'S BEHIND.... OCT.22,1993
