Old Breed

“War is brutish, inglorious, and a terrible waste… The only redeeming factors were my comrades’ incredible bravery and their devotion to each other. Marine Corps training taught us to kill efficiently and to try to survive. But it also taught us loyalty to each other – and love. That espirit de corps sustained us.” —Eugene B. Sledge, With the Old Breed

    “Old breed? New breed? There’s not a damn bit of difference so long as it’s the Marine breed.” -Chesty Puller
