Well Devil Dog, it is obviously the USN. Not because I spent 10 years there but because the Navy encompasses every force. The Navy can fight in the air, at sea, on the ground and strike from miles away.
A lot of mindless back-biting here. Quite obviously none of you have had to do any proper fighting alongside the USMC.
I for one, alongside several thousand other proper soldiers fought alongside them, Relief In Placed them, did planning with them etc, and had a gang on ANGLICOs (thats Air Naval Gunfire Liason Coy members) with us. Unlike the prima-donna 'I'm an FAC bow down and kneel at my awesome skills whislt I bring in ...umm, well I can't as the Tornado's broken, and all of the sand-filters have run out so there's no avn either', the ANGLICOs (who we Anglicised), gave us as much Cobra as we could use, a SPECTRE and plenty of F-18.
Massively impressed by professionalism, ability, fighting spirit and all-round cooperative attitude. Most of them are streets ahead of us doctrinally, and as for being all-arms experts, I challenge you to find a better organisation. A MEU, maybe something we should aspire to.
Now, keep the slagging to the NAAFI board, and Devil Dog, best not to talk about HM like that, even in jest.
