RED. Remember our deployed. A random collage of morale support and reminders to all to support our troops. Have you sent a care package this year? You can fit so much into a large flat rate box and for that cost, you couldn’t imagine how you could brighten the day of someone deployed, missing their home and friends and family. Thank you to all who are serving for your sacrifice and selflessness. Thank you to our veterans. Thank you to those who’ve paid the ultimate price defending our nation. Thank you for all you do.

The Marine Corps’ 30th commandant, retired Gen. Carl Epting Mundy Jr., has died, his family confirmed to Marine Corps Times. He was 78.

Mundy was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer, Merkel cell carcinoma, several months ago, said his son-in-law, Bob Gunter. He died Wednesday night at his home in Alexandria, Va.

Mundy served as commandant from 1991 to 1995 and helped to restructure the Marine Corps following the denouement of the Cold War.

According to a biography curated at the United States Marine Corps History Division, “General Mundy was noted for his emphasis on ‘people issues’ and core values of honor, courage, and commitment. During his tenure, ‘From the Sea’ became the Navy-Marine Corps joint strategic concept, wherein the Navy and Marine Corps reoriented doctrinal focus toward littoral warfare.”

Mundy served in the Vietnam War from 1966-67 and earned, among other awards, the Bronze Star with combat valor device, and the Purple Heart.

Following his retirement in 1995 after a 38-year military career, Mundy went on to serve as president and CEO of the USO and also served as chairman of the Marine Corps University Foundation.

Mundy’s two sons followed him into the Marine Corps. His oldest son, Brig. Gen. Carl E. Mundy III currently serves as commanding general of the 1st Marine Expeditionary Brigade in California, while Col. Timothy S. Mundy serves as chief of staff for Combat Development and Integration at Marine Corps Combat Development Command in Quantico, Va. He also survived by a daughter, Elizabeth Gunter.

Mundy’s wife of 56 years, Linda Sloan Mundy, died last June. She was 78.

In a statement released Thursday evening, Marine Commandant Gen. Jim Amos called Mundy “a valiant warrior, a dedicated public servant, and a good and decent man.”

Mundy “served with honor and distinction through more than four decades of devotion to country and Corps,” Amos said in the statement. “All Marines mourn his passing but celebrate his lasting legacy of service and leadership … Bonnie and I offer our deepest condolences to his family.”

Ask me one more motherfucking time why I pack everywhere I go. Go ahead. Thoughts and prayers go out to those families who lost someone on Fort Hood, but if we as a society continue to disallow our sheepdogs (especially those in the military) to carry ISSUED WEAPONS to protect themselves and those round them, this will continue.

"I am Command. Which means you don’t tell me to do anything because I’m not your BITCH. You’re the President. Your job is to shake hands, hold babies, pose with Prime Ministers and sit down in interviews with your family. You comfort people and you look pretty and you talk tough. You don’t do anything. I decide if there is a war.  I decide if a World Leader dies. I decide what to do with the Demitris and the Ivans. I decide if America sleeps at night. I decide if America endures.  This is not a game, Mr. President, and you can’t have your ball back.”

opsmarine asked: Seriously...why do women self depricate? If someone tells you you look nice, accept it. That makes it far less awkward and compliments boost confidence.

fadeo:

Seriously shut up. I know I’m attractive. I have confidence. I’m just being funny. And so what if I don’t like my FUCKING NIPPLES?! Like you seriously need something to complain about women all the time? Stop making assumptions about all women as a gender because WE’RE ALL DIFFERENT. You obviously don’t know me enough so don’t make assumptions about me either.

Thank you so incredibly much for your response. I didn’t submit the question to be ridiculed or pigeon -holed as an arrogant male. I simple asked. I did not mean it to say that all women are like that, nor was I complaining. I am sorry you felt that way, and I’m sorry you think I was making assumptions. No, I don’t know you…I just thought…I’d ask. I see I have been put in my place.

Death is often characterized as a sting; a removal from life. Often times, it brings with it a sweet embrace; a finality of purpose - the end.
