I know many don't like to register for news sites, but there is an excellent article by Irish journalist David Quinn about the Marine birthday party at the US Embassy in Dublin. Most of his countrymen have no use for the Marines. Here is a quote:

Letter to Editor regarding: USNI Proceedings "Gender and the Civil-Military
Gap," S. Lister, pp 50-53, January 2000.
Author: Captain Herman T. Voelkner, U.S. Army (Retired)
"When Sara Lister was forced to resign her Pentagon position after labeling
the Marine Corps as "extremists," there were those among the fair-minded who
wondered whether she had been treated too harshly. Perhaps she was quoted
out of context, we thought, or was making a sophisticated rhetorical point,
inelegantly phrased. It was not necessarily the case that she was yet
another social engineer determined to bring the military to heel and force
it to conform to fashionable societal trends.
Finally, I mentioned that only one service is successfully meeting its
recruitment goals. Instructively, that service is the United States Marine
Corps, home of Lister's "extremists." It alone resists the feminist's
demands to integrate basic training; it alone cultivates unabashedly a
reputation for breeding warriors who don't need to call for a "time out"
when things get tough.
... History, however, teaches us otherwise. It teaches us that it is
only a matter of time before somewhere American hostages are taken, or
somewhere an American embassy is surrounded by armed fanatics, or somewhere
an invader runs rampant over a civilian populace. And when such an event
happens, the hopeless and besieged won't be looking anxiously over the
horizon for a group of American troops liberated from their masculine
constructs, polite and courteous, attentive to the sensitivities of others.
They'll be looking for the Marines."
Speaking of the Marines, I am going to see the United States Marine Corps Band this weekend. I am so excited.
I watched the Drum and Bugle Corps at the State Fair of Texas. They were great!
I can't imagine how good the entire band would be.
BTW Did you know that all the bandsmen and women had to audition for the few spots available and then go through normal boot camp.
Each band member is a qualified Marine rifleman.
I knew that. I also looked at the musical qualifications of the musicians, and I have to say that they are quite top notch. I have always enjoyed listening to the military bands, as I think they are among the best bands in the nation.
Speaking of a rich history in the conductors of the United States Marine Corp Band, Check this out.
