Been on the road, sorry I overlooked this one. Semper Fi brothers and sisters. Once a Marine always a Marine. Before you go to bed tonight, know that you will sleep safely, Marines are defending our liberties throughout the world. OOH RAAAHHH!!!!!!

Not to nit pick but it's actually Hoorah. It's a Celtic battle cry which means "To kill." Had a chaplain explain that and plead with us not to say it in church, which of course made us say it louder.

The joys of MCRD San Diego; stay up late watching the fireworks at Seaworld, watching the planes take off and wishing you were on one, then going to church and ticking off of chaplain.

Maybe in your neighborhood "nolife"

"Not to nit pick but it's actually Hoorah".

Maybe in your civilian mind?

But, in the Marines it's "OOH RAAAHHH".

Don't believe me? Ask R.Lee Ermey.

In the Army, its "Hoo-ahh".

In the Navy it's, "Uk,Uk,Uk,Uk, Aye Aye Captain"!

In the Air Force it's, "The Internet is down, launch the fighters! MAYDAY MAYDAY MAYDAY"!!!!!!!

Sorry Navy/Air Force :) I don't know if you guys have a "cry", I just didn't wanna leave you out!

Don't worry "Nolife", that has been debated alot!

I was told Hoorah was a Turkish war cry?

So WTF????? Have whatever kind of day you want!

It's pronounced OOORAAH but spelled Hoorah, from what I'm told... but I could be wrong, I'm just a dumb grunt.

Well there it is Nolife, if your a grunt you should know.

If you "didn't want to be nit picky" you could have explained that from the start.

That would have saved me some typing!:)

Thanks to all the Marines that gave so much so that we would be free.
An ex instructor by the name of Tom Carroll passed away a few years ago.
He was a retired Tank Commander who after retirement instructed out of CRQ( Carlsbad CA ) for the next 20 plus years giving over 16,000 hours of instruction.
If anyone on this board knew him they knew what kind of Marine and person he was.
Just thought this was worth mentioning.

Requiescat in pace Tom

There are only two types of people in this world:

Marines and those who can only wish to be Marines.

Semper Fi!!
