It would not fit in the house…..
As Jesus taught us, the least deserving are probably those that need a kind word and the open hand of friendship the most.
Our farmhouse had a dirt floor in the basement and would grow an occasional morel mushroom.
A couple of your points are not quite right. Most Marine Officers come through OCS. Only a small percentage come from a service school (like the Naval Academy) are exempt. OCS has 2 different course. One is a 10 week graduate-to-Officer (which is how I was commissioned) program. No ROTC required. The other is the PCL program that the ROTC folks go through. It’s a 6 week course for two summers and your commissioned. Also, enlisted Marines can apply to MECEP (Marine Enlisted Commissioning Program) which pays for 4 years of college. Its a huge honor and benefit for those selected. they go through PCL program. Upon commissioning (from what ever source), everybody goes to The Basic School before heading off to a certain job specialty (aviaton, infantry, tanks, comm, etc).
Guilty as charged!
Thanks for the set-up! The Marines are part of the Navy…..the Men’s departments!
One track mind….

Uh,Oh….snakey is going to be extra shapely.
