It’s a Marine Thing

by Stacy Kaucher

At the Vietnam War Memorial (The Wall) in Washington, DC sits a flag pole. At it’s base are the seals of all the services: Army, Navy, Marines (United States Marine Corps), Air Force, and Coast Guard. Every day throughout the entire year a group from Marine Barracks, Eighth and I, Washington, DC come to the flag and polish the Marine Corps Emblem.

The other services have NEVER touched theirs.

From the March 2004 issue of the Marine Corps Law Enforcement Foundation newsletter.

NOTE: I know there are grammar mistakes in this post, but they are part of the QUOTE and I cannot change them.
