Once the warrior is no longer needed – once he becomes a relic of war – when it seems peace will prevail, he is mocked for being a savage, mocked for being a monster.

On November 10, 1775, a Corps of Marines was created by a resolution of Continental Congress. Since that date many thousand men have borne the name “Marine”. In memory of them it is fitting that we who are Marines should commemorate the birthday of our corps by calling to mind the glories of its long and illustrious history.

I’m not one of those guys that thinks that military service ought to be a requirement for becoming President, but Ash Carter might have convinced me that it should be a requirement for SecDef.

The Marine Corps is known for fielding older equipment. In fact, it’s something we have always taken pride it – but this story isn’t about pride. It’s about protecting a cherished sliver of the Marine Corps armorer community, the Precision Weapons Section (PWS), at the expense of actual snipers in the field. Their rifles simply don’t have a range that matches the level of their training and expertise, nor the range of the weapons that are being used against them. It needs to change.
