“What do they do?”

The following was sent to Johca and is from Jim Muelchi, a former Air Force Pararescueman that I once had the honor to work with on a TDY once. He is retired now and lives in England. Thought you all might like to hear what we are saying about you from our retired PJ side to the unknowing in Blue land:
-------------------------------
John

Please send to the Brotherhood

I just came back from RAF Alconbury where I purchased some golf balls for tomorrow. As I entered the BX there stood in front of me a young Marine in dress uniform accepting gifts for the “Toys for Tots” program. I acknowledged him and thanked him for all he and the United States Marines do. Next to me stood a lady who promptly asked me “What do they do?” She should be forgiven for not knowing who I am and the answer she was about to receive. So as not to cause LD any more difficulties blowing coffee from his nasal passages (did I get this right Randy?) on to the avionics package, I will summarize;

I said to this lady “What they do is they stand watch so we can sleep at night, and when their tour is finished having vanquished the Taliban, Al Qaeda and the many enemies who have dared test our Marines over the years, they don’t come home to put their feet up, they look after the kids in our society that nobody wants. They are the role models for orphans that our privileged young people do not get to see. And when their time on this earth is finished “God” has chosen the United States Marines to stand watch over and guard the streets of Heaven. No other military on earth has been chosen By “ God Himself” for this honor. I hope she went home to reflect.

I know I sleep really well in the United Kingdom knowing our Marine are on duty.

Merry Christmas

Jim Muelchi

This was a baised decision. It is widely beleived (at least in some circles :) ) that God was a Marine.

You have to go to Marine boot camp to claim that title and as far as I know God never enlisted so he could not have possibly been a Marine!!
