    And those stir up a lot of emotions for us. I understand there are pictures of Marines being killed and wounded by snipers, and they've been put of by the Marine Corps and other media outlets for various reasons. But next time I suggest you post with a little more respect when you talk about subjects like a Marines death.



    JC0352, some great pictures, how was Ramadi back in 05? Only action I got out there was along Routes Michigan and Mobile.

    JC, did you carry that M79 around with you all the time?

    Anyway, great photos, and happy birthday to the United States Marine Corps. James Forrestal's prediction is well on it's way to becoming true .

    Those are Marines rank insignias, from PFC all the way up to a 4-star General. Symbolizing every Marine leaving a bit of himself on Iwo, like so many other Marines did in 1945.

    Default Marines, Afghan Soldiers Hunt Taliban

    [FONT=Verdana]HELMAND PROVINCE, Afghanistan – Afghan national army soldiers and Marines with Weapons Company, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, conducted an operation to clear out compounds in Norzai, Afghanistan, Nov. 6.

    Under the cover of night, Marines manoeuvred to a nearby village and waited until sunrise to begin searching compounds for caches of illegal drugs, weapons and improvised, explosive device-making material.

    "We hit all the houses that we were trying to get to," said Lance Cpl. John Franke, 20, an amphibious assault vehicle operator from Greenville, S.C. "Besides looking for weapons caches and IED-making materials, we were trying to catch an IED maker that is supposedly living in one of the villages."

    Marines did their best to clear out as many compounds as they could before losing the element of surprise. With the help of ANA soldiers, Marines were able to move faster and cover more ground.

    During their searches, Marines were very cautious of improvised ****y traps – a tactic used by the enemy. Each route used by troops was carefully swept using a metal detector.

    "I was a little bit nervous, but I've been trained how to use the sweeper, so I knew I could do it," said Frankie, 20, from Greensville, S.C. "I just wanted to make sure I did the job right. Even if that meant taking my time, because I don't want to see any of these guys get hurt."

    Nearing the end of their seven-month deployment, Marines aren't taking any chances when it comes to keeping each other safe.

    "We try to search houses often to keep [enemy insurgents] guessing," said Staff Sgt. David Dial, 29, a section leader from Newnan, Ga. "We didn't find anything this time but no one got hurt either so I guess things worked out."

    Why is it still so common to see Marines carrying the M16 with the full stock (C7A1 in Canada)? How come they have not phased it out for a collapsible stock? We still use the C7A1 here as well, but only in the reserves as far as I know.
