“This is the most American thing ever”

| September 23, 2021 | 17 Comments

Here’s something to brighten your day. With all the constant negativity, this moment reminds us why the military is called “the service.”

A woman was recently stuck in D.C. floodwaters when a US Marine Corps motorcoach pulled over in front of her. Out came a half dozen Marine NCOs in full dress blue uniforms. In a downpour, the men walked through the knee deep water and pushed the woman’s car out of the flooded road for her. They demonstrated excellent mastery of amphibious operations, so I hope someone makes note of that for their next FitRep.

Fox News is reporting that the Marines were part of the Marine Corps Body Bearers who perform funeral services at Arlington National Cemetery.

Honor. Courage. Commitment. Semper Fi, Marines!

I wonder how many will now invest in the glorious boat cloak to wear with their blues. It would have made them look even more epic and helped keep the rain off.

    Semper Fi, Devil Dawgs! Well done!

    BuTTT CNN will report this as a “attempted carjacking”.

  3. 5JC says:

    Nah, the most American thing ever were the little Marine babies born 9 months later….

    Saw a set of breastworks that needed attention and their training kicked in.

    BZ Devil Dogs.

    You can’t stop the American spirit.
    Take very good heed of that, all 435+101+1+9 of you nearly monsters.

    Too strongly worded?

    Casket boys as well.

    They could have carried the car by the looks of them.

    • Green Thumb says:

      Oh, and I hope they are all vaccinated.

      Would not want one of them getting a DD for helping out….


      • Roh-Dog says:

        Imagine getting a DD for not getting a not-a-vaxxine for a bad cold that you have a statistically 100% chance of surviving and probably have natural immunity to, which according to duh sigh-en-tists is vastly superior to the GCI.

        But yeah, go Marines*!!

        *right up to the point you fuck your own for nothing.

    Army paratroopers would have done the same thing.

    Of course, they would have walked ON the water to keep their jump boots dry…😜😜😜

    BZ, Jarheads!!!!

    I will never understand why people drive into water on a paved road and then get stuck. Happens around here when there is heavy rain. People get out of their car, go look at the “pond” in the roadway, and still try to drive through… and then wonder why they got stuck.

      To be fair, flash floods occur quite often in the DC area. Most of that is in DC because so many slops just toss their trash into the road, and grates on the drainage pipes get clogged. This particular incident was in Arlington, not in DC. But As close to DC and still being in Virginia.

    Sadly, the boat cloak is out of the inventory of authorized wear. I bought mine (circa 1937) from the Uniform Thrift at the Naval Academy in 1989, Made by the same company that made FDR’s. Weighs about 40 lbs when wet.

    Imagine having to watch this if you were some beta male like Beto O’Rourke, Freddo Cuomo, Don Lemon, Chuck Schumer, Hunter Biden, Lars Taylor, Pete Butt-a-dig-dig………
    Knowing that you can barely comprehend having this type of behavior naturally wired into your being.
