As a fighting force I respect The Corps as much as anyone and even had a smidgen of sympathy for the blokes in the "let's pish-all-over-the-dead-Taliban" incident. This, however is ridiculous. Marine SS photo riles major U.S. Jewish group - CBS News The Jarheads' Head Shed clearly also think so, as they simply won't admit that their lads know anything about the historical role of the SS - and after all - SS just stands for "Scout Sniper," right? Of course. So who chose the font? Gunnery Sergeant Dirlewanger, or was if Private First Class Peiper? Curious to hear what our man JJ has to say on this matter as the accused - a handy-looking bunch, it must be said - are his old mob. (I think.) Curious trivia: As well as being aggressive, assault-focused military elites, the USMC and the Waffen SS share near-identical mottos: Beach stormers: "Always Faithful" Panzer knackers: "My Honor is Loyalty"
