Absolutely Dusa, listen, it becomes ingrained in one's memory, the History, Tradition, Esprit de Corps, and Lore of the Marine Corps. Why I like this page so much is because the Legion is exactly the same, like twins, and so are the Royal Marines, I have the ultimate respect for those Marines.I don't have it. I just noticing that those two units (marines) are not so strong on modesty. Maybe that is part of training. I would also like for my men to think they are better then enemy. But I would also like not to underestimate foe. I know that is hard when most of your enemies are so behind you with weapons and all other things.
It's not so easy when most of time enemy is gothF-ers in slippers with 50 yr old AKs. Still modesty is important.
And I believe there is many of marines there who are humble. I can't say that about every US or UK marine whom I have ever met, But if I'm talking about some guys here and some from other places and compare them to FFL (Not night jumping guys ) modesty is not on your side.
Let me give you example. First I think you are good person and you have many good attributes and I respect you. I'm not saying you are boastful just saying I can't call you modest. Especially when you talking about your teams. (USMC. your state, America, etc )
How many US Marines finished their contract honorably? Do you wont me to believe that all of them are really good soldiers, really good men and other superlatives? All
while putting down other (especially non allied armies)...
If you ding that (and from my experience you do) , sorry but I can't consider you for modest man.
