As I write this, a fresh batch of Devil Dogs should be enjoying the traditional all_you_can_eat Warrior's Breakfast up at Camp Pendleton.

Lord willing, the Son&Heir and his platoon successfully wrapped up their trip through the Crucible this morning.

Recruits stepped off 54 hours ago. Freshly minted Marines came back down the hill this morning.

As for the etymology of Ooh-rah, here's a bit of history and perspective from America's 1st Sgt at Castra Praetoria. AARUGHA!!!

If all went well last night I can now say officially that my wife may look harmless, but, she raised a Marine.
