"The Japanese fought to win – it was a savage, brutal, inhumane, exhausting and dirty business. Our commanders knew that if we were to win and survive, we must be trained realistically for it whether we liked it or not. In the post-war years, the U.S. Marine Corps came in for a great deal of undeserved criticism in my opinion, from well-meaning persons who did not comprehend the magnitude of stress and horror that combat can be. The technology that developed the rifle barrel, the machine gun and high explosive shells has turned war into prolonged, subhuman slaughter. Men must be trained realistically if they are to survive it without breaking, mentally and physically." United States Marine Corps Day.
― E.B. Sledge, With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa

"Hardness," I was learning, was the supreme virtue among recon Marines. The greatest compliment one could pay to another was to say he was hard.

― C.S. Crawford, The Four Deuces: A Korean War Story

And as much as people say that they don't care about these people and all that, I don't care about these people – but I do, at the same time, if that makes any sense. They don't want to help themselves, they're blowing us up, yeah, that hurts, but it also hurts to know that I've seen a girl that's as old as my little brother watch me shoot somebody in the head. And I don't care if she's Iraqi, Korean, African, white – she's still a little girl. And she watched me shoot somebody."
― David Finkel, The Good Soldiers

"There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and the enemy. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion."
