You don't get it.
This Marine, even if he receives an "other than honorable" discharge, will have former Marines like myself looking out for him.
It's hard to explain to people who haven't served in the Marine Corps.
We're different from the other services in the way we relate to one another.
Some thirty years after I served, I still consider any Marine my brother.
That never changes.
