Definition of a Marine

Definition of a Marine

Marines come in all shapes, shades, weights, sizes, and states of sobriety,
misery, and confusion. He is sly as a fox, has the nerve of a dope addict,
the stories of an old sailor, the sincerity of a politician, and the subtly
of Mt. Saint Helen. He is extremely irresistible, totally irrational and
completely indestructible. A Marine is a Marine all his life. He is a
magical creature. You can kick him out of your house but not out of your
heart. You can take him off your mailing list but not off your mind.

Marines are found everywhere... in love...in battle... in lust... in
trouble...in debt...in bars and ... behind them. No one can write so seldom
and yet think so much of you. No one else can get so much enjoyment out of
a letter or clean clothes or a six pack. A Marine is a genius with a deck
of cards. A millionaire without a cent and brave without a grain of sense.

He is the PROTECTOR OF AMERICA, with the latest copy of playboy in his back
pocket. When he wants something it's usually 30 days leave, music that
hurts the ears, or a five dollar bill.. or a woman he can count on. Girls
love them, mothers tolerate them, fathers brag about them, the government
pays them, the police watch out for them and somehow they all work
together. You can beat their bodies but not their minds. You can tame their
hearts but not their souls. He likes girls, females, women, ladies, and the
opposite sex. He dislikes small checks, working weekends answering letters,
eating chow, waking up, maintaining a uniform, cutting his hair, and the
day before payday.

You may as well give in. He is your long distance lover... he is your steel
eyed, warm smiling, blank minded, hyperactive, over reacting, curious,
passive, talented spontaneous, physically fit, good for nothing bundle of
worry..... He shatters all your dreams and fantasies when he drunkenly
crawls into bed with you at 3:00am kisses you for 5 minutes, tells you how
much he loves you, checks the clock and falls asleep with his head on your
breasts, his hand between your legs...... and his mind on both.
