The Marine Corps is part of the Navy, Right?

 As a member of the Marine Corps, 1962-1968, I was asked if, and told I was, part of the Navy many times. In addition to WordPress, Facebook, and Twitter, I’m also on Quora from time to time. I’m not there very often as I’m not too smart and don’t have a lot of answers on a lot of things. Any answers I might have had at one time, are usually long forgotten. I guess you could say I have a lot of opinions, I mean hell, I’m 72 years old, I’m allowed to have opinions, right? I have learned one thing though, and that is, thanks to my wife, hold your tongue Rooster. Well — let us just say I’m getting better.  After a particular epiphany we, my wife of 50 years and I, in privacy, will voice our opinions to each other. Yes, on occasion I’ll get that look, and you men out there know what that look is. “Rooster, keep your mouth shut,” is the look.
Oops, where was I?  Oh yes, Quora. So the Question put to Quora was,
Regan Copple

Regan Copple, USMC Veteran 1986-1992 gave the readers this answer and

276 Views came out of it to date.

Reagan’s Answer

Now personally I would not use the F word nor the middle finger.  I’ve served with the Navy in numerous postings in the past, have many Sailor friends and always appreciated the Gator Navy for being the Marine Corps version of Uber.

One more little note, purely my observation and I’m just throwing this out there. If your a God fearing man or woman, you’ve most likely heard of the Holy Trinity.

The Holy Trinity by unknown Portuguese master (16th cent.). Museu Diocesano de Santarém, Portugal

The “Shield of the Trinity” or Scutum Fidei diagram of traditional medieval Western Christian symbolism, since 12th-century CE.

The Christian doctrine of the Trinity (from Latin trinitas “triad”, from trinus “threefold”)[1] defines God as three consubstantial persons,[2] expressions, or hypostases:[3] the Father, the Son (Jesus Christ), and the Holy Spirit; “one God in three persons”. The three persons are distinct, yet are one “substance, essence or nature”.[4] In this context, a “nature” is what one is, while a “person” is who one is.[5][6][7]

(Thanks Wikipedia)

Now go look at the logos up top on the Department of the Navy web site. OOH RAH!!!!

And one last thing, on that first Saturday in December I say “Go Navy, Beat Army.”

    That is a very detailed answer. My head is still spinning. Surely no one would dare argue with you about it given your clear knowledge of the issue. (You even managed to sneak the Trinity into your explanation at the end.) 🙂
