OKINAWA, Japan, Nov. 17, 2017 — Marine Corps pilots are the only aviators in the U.S. military who are taught the basics of infantry tactics prior to flight school.
This ensures every Marine is a rifleman. Though the chances of an aviator leading a platoon of infantry Marines are slim to none, there are cases where Marine pilots are embedded in infantry units.
Since the 60’s on the me generation has gradually rebuilt American culture to take from others, avoid personal responsibility, and pursue self-gratification without duty.
But through it all has shone a bright spot.
America's veterans. Those who stepped up to protect and defend others. Those who gave the best years of their lives not living the good life at the mall or raking in the benefits taken from others, but raising families on meager military salaries in hard circumstances not of their own making, in order to protect others.
