What?

You thought that just because His Slave-drivingness isn’t looking over your shoulders for a couple of days, you can take a break from earning those enormous privileges and powers that you enjoy as Citizens of the Empire?

Think again.

Thanks to a tip from LC Beth* A and LC & IB Orion, we learn that there’s a support email shortage affecting our beloved Marine Corps.

What’s even worse, SGT Deboard of RCT-6 is doubting that we can manage to flood their inbox and sink their server with heartfelt, grateful and loving messages. I do believe that’s what’s known as a dare, ladies and gentlemen, a dare that we have to respond to.

So what’s it gonna be? Is the Empire to stand up as one and meet the challenge head on, overwhelming, nay vaporizing that server with messages of support and gratitude, making the good SGT work overtime going through an Avalanche of Appreciation on a truly Biblical scale? or are we to let the gauntlet lie in the dust unattended?

You know the answer to that one.

So get to scribbling, citizenry, write an email to our Marines, a few paragraphs or a three volume epic, letting them know how you feel about them and their mission.

This is the address.

And tell your friends and family too.

We all know how much we love and support our military. It’s time to let them know too.

    E-mail out! The 6th Marines are an illustrious unit in the Corps. They, along with the 5th Marines, were the original Devil Dogs, stopping the German advance on Paris at Belleau Wood and earning the French Croix De Guerre, which they still wear in the form of the Fouragerre on the left shoulder of their uniform. The term Devil Dogs comes from the German Teufel Hunde, which was an honorific the German High Command gave to units which fought especially hard. In 1918 they gave it the Marine Brigade.

    1/6 is also special to me personally because I served with it’s CO, Lt.Col. Jurney when he and I were L/Cpl’s with Marine Barracks Guam.

    Get those e-mails going guys!

    I couldn’t help a little humor toward the end:

    Oh, by the way, if there are any single-and-looking lady Marines in the unit, I’m sure my family would love to have all four service branches as part of it. :)

    I knew that story about the term Devil Dog Crunchie, but there’s no way this civilian history freak could tell it better than a Marine. Thanks to you for your service as well sir.

    Er,
    MegaTroopX, I don’t know she qualifies, but my middle daughter Christine is going through the selection process for the Marines OTC for the October session. (She graduated with a double major summa cum laude from the Honors College at the University of Houston in 3 1/2 years.) So she should be a Marine soon…
    ….and my youngest, who was in Marine ROTC, is at Ft. Bragg in the US Army.

    Given the determined anti-intellectual bent of so many of the distaff side (or maybe it’s just my experience), smart ladies are sometimes hard to find.

    don’t worry about it. I wish you luck on your quest.

    My female neighbors do think I’m weird for being strongly interested in politics and current events, even the ones that are very bright. They find the news depressing and want to avoid it.

    Done Sire,

    Yesterday I sent off another package to my Army Lt (son of the doc I work with). It was a big box of specialized IV catheters to be donated by the Army to the local hospital where he is stationed. Every Iraqi and Afgan we can care for makes the service members job easier. I believe most of us have perfectly good stuff around the house that could help over there. Ask your service member what they need and see if you can supply it. One can send a box to Iraq (any weight) for about 8 bucks. Send it regular mail and it takes about a week or two to get there.

    Very tempting but not nearly as much fun as raising hell! Loved politics since I can remember myself. It all started with my retired decorated hero bomber-pilot Grandfather (World War II, Russian Air Force) cursing commies 40 ways from Sunday. Then, officially forbidden radio stations…Dissent at school… Some consequent trouble…
    Politics is a study of human beings co-existing in societies. It is part of philosophy and should NOT be ignored!

    I think it’s really important to know what’s going in the world because it’s important and not just because it interests me.

    One of the reasons it is important is because it has a very direct impact on an individual’s life: yours, mine, anyone else’s. When people choose to ignore it they do it at their own peril. What they are doing is basically refusing to think. Since we live in societies, aka in groups, interacting with others, we need to know as much as we can about politics, which is basically a study of interactions among people. You know it. I know it. People on this blog know it. Why are there so many still willing to bury their heads in the sand? It’s a rhetorical question, really.
