“In the last analysis what the Marine Corps becomes is what we make of it during our respective watches. And that watch of each Marine is not confined to the time he spends on active duty. It lasts as long as he is proud to bear the title of United States Marine.”
Gen. Louis Wilson, USMC Ret, 26th Commandant of the Marine Corps (1975)

The Marine Major-General, Commanding, Lejeune, it is related, went serenely to sleep. And they related further that a staff Colonel who, was careful and troubled about many things came to rouse him with a tale of disaster: “General, I have word from the front that a regiment 5th Marines is entirely surrounded by the Germans !”
Yes, Colonel? Well, sir,” said the general, sadly and sleepily, “I am sorry for those Germans!” – and returned to his slumbers.
