People like to bitch and complain about how they are protect by the blanket of freedom the Marine Corps does for them. The hard truth is that unless you have served, unless you are going to serve your thoughts and opinions are about as useful as a sponge in the desert is. You think we're cocky, you think we're erogant but yet your to self centered to give up your life for others. You want to judge how we are, how we act? How about you stop your bitching, stop being a crybaby snowflake, stop being entitled for once in your life and thing of others. The Marines don't put themselves above others, instead we put ourselves Infront of others, to protect them. Even when you complain about how we are we still did it. Not cause we have to, but cause we want to. Cause it's the right thing to do. I earned my title, I wanted the right to say and do what I want, I earned the right to call you out. I earned everything I have cause I stepped up, cause I said I will die for your entitled ass
I will not sit here and be told how I'm wrong by a person that has never walked in my shoes. Thats like them telling me how to provide that freedom the take for granted. Never going to happen
@USMCHUNGCSO Does modest pride exist in the military? Because the Australian military is much less upbeat. They focus more on the past and the history. They are very laid back. Most Australians never get thanked for their service. They don't think they are the best of the best or brag. They don't need to brag at all when most people respect and recognise them for who they are without putting them on a pedestal. Yes, it takes guts to get in the military. I respect those who are in. But it doesn't automatically or necessarily make you a better person than anyone else in society.
Surprisingly, this is MY opinion. A civilian's opinion. If you don't give a shit, why feel the need to be triggered by judgement or some random person online? I wanted to know why they are cocky. I have yet to whine or bitch about it. It is just my observation.
And just one question. Clash of egos. Are Marines or Army rangers better?
We're as you say cocky because we are bad asses and we do what most never could. Also the phrase triggered. Makes me laugh when civilians use it haha. But trust me I'm not even close to being triggered. The reason I commented was my bro tagged me in this. So I figured I'd give you my thoughts. As for do we know modest pride. Maybe some do. But why shouldn't we be proud of what we have done and do
Well marines are the best out of boot camp. Army rangers are spec ops. Your trying to compare regular military and spec ops.
@USMCHUNGCSO I respect both of your opinions. I know military women and men are selfless and brave. But why do they feel the need to brag when they already get enough respect (at least in the US)? Do you guys know Mbest11x? He is quite cocky and acts "alpha" lmao. And like a womanizer. I thought he is how a typical soldier would act. He said army rangers were the best of the best. Since Marines say often they're the best of the best I was just wondering which of them are better or stronger. Cause Marines often say they're better than soldiers.
Marines are better then army. And you really think service members are treated fair and nice in the USA? Maybe you should come with me for a day. Youd be shocked.
@USMCHUNGCSO Thank you both for the straightforward, honest and concise input. Also, Chico_brah, so sorry for your loss. But I am sure your grandfather would be very proud of you. Marines are extremely tough. I've watched the movie Jarheads and Full Metal Jacket. Deployment conditions can be hell-like. No average person can survive in those conditions. It takes more than guts to be a Marine. It also takes a lot of physical skill. I now have a lot of respect for those men and women who have served and they do deserve to be a little cocky. They are brave and respectable people but that does not automatically qualify them as being above anybody else. Do you both like or know Mbest11x?My boyfriend is a Marine. He always brags about his job, sing cadences in the streets and is pretty cocky. He even compared himself to my ex boyfriend who was a soldier and said he was nothing compared to himself.
I understand now. As a student civvie pilot, I see a lot of cocky pilots around. But they don't deal with half the shit that military pilots do. All you gotta do is fly in a straight line and stay calm. You don't have to actively avoid other aircraft and live in fear for every second your tach timer measures getting your ass hit.
Was going to send you message. It's all good though.. Go ahead decline my follow request. Nah I'm joking but I was going to send you a message.
So are Marines better or army rangers? Do you know Mbest11x or Mat Best? He seems super cocky and conceited in most of his videos. He portrays himself as an alpha male or womanizer.
Haha o yes I know Mbest11x he's awesome.Army Rangers is one of of the toughest units in the army but so are the marines they both pretty equal in my mind but I'm a bit baised since I had a marine in the family haha.Yes he' super cocky in his videos but that's kind of on purpose, you have to remember those videos are made for entertainment purposes but also to pump up people about the military and the company he works for black rifle coffee.
So both army rangers and Marines say they are the best of the best. Too bad they won't be content sharing the same title lol. It's the clash of the egos. I wish I could see more modest pride from military members. But it seems that modest pride only exists in the Australian military. I am an Australian civilian pilot dating in a relationship with a US Marine. He could not stop bragging about his job or laugh at the soldiers. I have dated a couple of Marines before and they all acted similar. That's why I have made this observation. I do know Marines go through so much more stress than civilian pilots do, and most pilots can be cocky. But all the Marines I have spoken to were more cockier than even the cockiest civilian pilot.
Well if I'm being honest every branch of the military and every unit say's their the best, it causes friendly rivalry between the branches and units and makes them work harder to maintain that image.Nah there's tons of modest pride military members to I belong to a military family full of em and I know a lot of them to.
Ah I see. It's like the aircraft mechanics who thinks that we're always breaking their stuff. We do have friendly rivarly between pilots and mechanics. It causes mechanics to become more critical and for pilots to become more cautious. Funny how it all boils down to their ego. Are you in the military?
Indeed but it makes them work harder to maintain that best of the best mentality.Haha no maybe someday but not now.

That's exactly the same in Australia. I admire modest pride. I feel the Australian and English soldiers already feel respected or recognised and does not feel the need to have their egos stroked or placed high in a pedestal. Like they are secure with themselves.
Veterans aren't exactly treated like gods here.
@fsu19You're right, but they are treated as a cut above the rest.America is the only western country I know where they give veterans standing ovations for just serving in the military
Glad to find that male soldiers find female soldiers attractive. I thought they are only attracted to Dependas. I heard that there is an entire battalion after a single female soldier 😂 female soldiers are hot.
Lol u missed the point. Yes some are hot
Are army rangers or Marines better? Seems head to head and their egos clash.
Army rangers are special forces, Marines are just marines (basic infantry) Marines have their own special forces called Marine Raiders and other in the MARSOC units. MARSOC is better in my opinion that Green Berets (army). Seals beat everyone by far
Some of the hardest Marines I knew were the most hypermasculine and cocky dudes you'd ever see. They were decorated. They came back from deployment and would wreak havoc on boots (new guys). They bragged about what they did out there with photo proof. They were some badass dudes that you would never try to fuck with. You respected them and if they respected you they wouldn't fuck with you. I saw these types first hand. My grandfather who I never met was on seal team one. He was killed by a landmind in Vietnam. I got to read his diary when I was 19 years old and I legit almost teared up an half hour in because I could see so much of my self in him and the struggles he went through in the military. I wish I could of met him. The navy seals are some craziest and cockiest motherfuckers you could ever meet.
Tbh I think you're just a 19 year old kid that doesn't really know what he's talking about at all. Let me explain the difference between Marines and Seals. Marine corps is primary comprised of teenagers. Very young branch. The Marine Corps has always been like that. Who do you think is going to act more composed in front of civilians? 27 Year old navy seal of a 19 year old Marine? Marine Corps realized this and they embrace this hyper masculine culture because it benefits the Marine Corps and their mission. You only see what you are supposed to see. It's like that for a reason. There are no generic personalities intertwined with a strong and caliber Marine or Navy Seal. They come from all walks of life. Some are humbled and some are the most ruthless savage dudes you could ever meet. That doesn't make them mediocre at what they do.
Now I click your profile and see your hair is within ad regulation. I don't mean this as an insult but are you a pog? I just don't get how we had completely different experiences.
I have not been in the military. My opinion is just based on some individuals i have met who are current marines (some friends) and a few navy seals i have met (retired seals my dad knew). Your point makes sense about the age difference of a 19 year old marine and a 27 year old seal. I get that. But even with that said The marines that are in their teenage years, should also know how to have self control and not brag.
And what does the length of my hair have to do with anything. I just like punk rock music and short hair. The fact that you assumed that i was in the military based on my haircut is laughable. It is like the people who ask "are you in the military" when i wear a camo boonie from time to time. Maybe that's just my style.
I deeply respect what they are doing but they shouldn't act overly entitled or think they are better than everyone else.
They can be praised for their bravery but America takes it to the next step with their troops.
Yeah, I'd ditch a Marine for a sailor anytime. They are ao laidback and calm. Not super hypermasculine or overly enthusiastic in general.
Haha I'm a Navy Sailor, and that's nice to hear. It's a difference in the cultures. Army people tend to be full of themselves, and think respect, and asskissing are the same thing. But that's from my perspective, they'd be horrified that I, as an officer would drink with my enlisted sailors
That's so awesome! I have always admired sailors. I have dated a few naval officers and they are awesome. Modest, laidback, kind and funny. They are not so uptight and they don't do as much weird things together. Plus their white uniforms look pretty cool. Better than a Marine's :D
Within most Navies it is understood that we all put one pant leg on at a time. I'm not better than anyone because of my job, it's a bloody job, and people need to get over the idea that military people are any different. We wear a cool white uniform, and sail around, but that doesn't make us any better than a teacher, a lawyer, or a Machinist
They call air force pilots the chairforce. But I feel that military pilot is just as mentally strenuous and stressful. Were you a fighter pilot? As a civilian pilot, I feel that military flight training is crazy difficult. All we had to do was fly in a straight line.
You brainwashed brah? Lmao
All the ones I've met including my brother are really humble
Not all. Most brag and talk about themselves. Think they are alpha males or womanizers. Think they are better than other guys just cause they are in the military.
