    Marines do community work foreign and domestic like any other of the 5 branches. Toys for Tots?
    While they may emit more bluster than the other branches, that really doesn't make them any more violent. And while there are always exceptions, no Marine (and once a Marine, always a Marine), I've ever known has been abusive to women. Indeed, as much pride as the Corps puts into its fighting prowess, it puts into its moral compass. I've known a few less-than-savory characters that came out of the Corps true gentlemen and they remain so today.
    As I said, there are exceptions, but as much as I hate war, especially those started for conquest, I respect the US Marine Corps.

    And this is coming from a former sailor.
