You gotta love the Marines!

Discussion in 'The US Marine Corps Forum' started by New York Hunter, Mar 22, 2006.

  1. My marine friend at work sent me this. I couldn't figure out how to post the link so I cut and pasted it instead! He was a TOW gunner with 3rd tank batt., 1st Marine Div. He was part of "Task Force Ripper" in the first Gulf war. After the war he was asigned to the 3/7! Anyways here it is!

    >> >>Marine Corps General Reinwald was interviewed on a radio show the other
    >>day and you really have to read his reply to the lady who questioned him
    >>concerning guns and children. Regardless of how you feel about gun laws
    >>you gotta love this!!!!
    >>This is one of the best comeback lines of all time.

    >> >>This is a portion of that National Public Radio (NPR) interview between
    >>a female broadcaster and US Marine Corps General Reinwald who was about to
    >> sponsor a Boy Scout Troop that was visiting his military installation.
    >> >>FEMALE INTERVIEWER: So, General Reinwald, what things are you going
    >>to teach these young boys when they visit your base?
    >> >>GENERAL REINWALD: We're going to teach them climbing, canoeing,
    >>archery, and shooting.
    >> >>FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Shooting! That's a bit irresponsible, isn't it?
    >> >>GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see why, they'll be properly supervised
    >>on the rifle range.
    >> >>FEMALE INTERVIEWER: Don't you admit that this is a terribly
    >>dangerous activity to be teaching children?
    >> >>GENERAL REINWALD: I don't see how. We will be teaching them
    >>proper rifle discipline before they even touch a firearm.
    >> >>FEMALE INTERVIEWER: But you're equipping them to become violent
    >> >>GENERAL REINWALD: Well, Ma'am, you're equipped to be a
    >>prostitute, but you're not one, are you?
    >> >>The radio went silent and the interview ended.
    >> >>You gotta love the Marines! :) :beer: :rollsmiley:
  2. I posted this on another site that I frequent pretty much daily. One of the guys over there said this has been around for a few years and never really happened. I have no idea. I still think it's funny and I wouldn't put it past some of the marines I know to say something like this under the same circumstances! Having said that, I just wanted to let everyone know that it might not have happened. I've always been strait forward with my posts and will keep it that way! Sorry, NYH! :) :beer: :rollsmiley:

    It's an urban legend.

    but it's still pretty funny.
