You can always tell Marines from other branches when in camo because Marines roll their sleeves so the inside shows whereas AF/Army/Navy roll theirs so the outside shows. Unless it's a Navy Corpsman (medic) then they are also allowed to roll their sleeves Marine-style.

We stopped rolling sleeves like a year ago. I miss how good they made us look.

Glad I got out when I did.

Ready for a bigger shock? MARPAT is either being phased out OR being made standard issue across all branches by 2018. I don't know which is worse. The plus side is that if all branches go back to the same pattern, CMC would be an idiot NOT to reinstate rolled up sleeves

Congress is trying to push MARpat on all the other branches, along with instating a new jungle/tropical camo. The CMC definitly won't ever reinstate rolled sleeves, just like he won't kill the tattoo policy. "Too much time and effort spent to go back to the ways we were." It's a god damn air wing conspiracy man

I....I've got nothing. "Hey, you know how we at least had defining characteristics that set you apart from other services to at least give you something to take pride in while even the Salvation Army had a bigger budget than you? Yeah, we're just gonna nix that but keep making you deal with the cheapest **** possible because, as always, **** you that's why."

If they were going to turn the Corps into the other branches the least they could've done was give us a bigger budget instead of saying "Adapt and overcome" every ******* day because nothing ever worked unless we jury-rigged it so much it defied physics.
