Marine Corps Wisdom

There’s an old story in the Marine Corps about a Lieutenant who inspected his Marines in the field, and afterward told the “Gunny” that the men smelled bad. The Lieutenant suggested the solution would be to change their underwear.

So the Gunny responded, “Aye Aye sir, I’ll see to it immediately!”

The Gunny went straight to the squad. “The lieutenant thinks you guys smell bad, and wants you to change your underwear. Smith, you change with Jones, McCarthy, you change with Witkowsky, and Brown, you change with Schultz. Now get to it!”

THE MORAL: A candidate may promise “change” in Washington, but don’t count on things smelling any better.


Thanks to my Dad for that great Marine Corps Wisdom.  It made me chuckle this morning.  Semper Fi!
