Military Humor
A Taliban Army Platoon was on patrol when the commander noticed a lone Marine standing on a hilltop above their location. The commander told two of his soldiers to go take out the Marine, so they dropped their packs and promptly ran as fast as they could toward the Marine. Just before they got to the top, the Marine ran over the other side of the hill. The two soldiers followed.

For the next few moments there were bloody screams and dust flying in the air. Then as quickly as it had started, it stopped and the Marine appeared back on the hilltop. He brushed off his cammies, straightened his cover, crossed his arms and stood there looking down at the Taliban soldiers.

The infuriated commander called for a squad to go get the Marine. They promptly ran as fast as they could toward him. Just before they got to the top, the Marine ran over the other side of the hill. The squad followed, and for the next few minutes there were bloody screams and dust flying in the air. When it stopped, the Marine again returned to the hilltop. He brushed off his cammies, straightened his cover, crossed his arms and stood there looking down at the remaining Taliban soldiers.

The commander was really hot now. He ordered the rest of his platoon to attack the Marine. Determined that Taliban soldiers were far superior to one lone Marine, they had blood in their eyes as they ran up the hill. Just before they got to the top, the Marine ran over the other side of the hill. The blood-thirsty soldiers followed. For many minutes there were horrific screams and clouds of dust flying in the air. It continued and continued.

When it finally stopped, one lone soldier came crawling back to the commander, all bloody and beat about the head and shoulders. His uniform was torn, cuts were all over his body. The commander demanded a report. The lone soldier, trying to catch his breath, replied in a forceful yet trembling voice, "Sir, run... it was a trick.

There are TWO of them!!"

The Marine Corps League National Headquarters

BREAKING NEWS: U.S. Marine Corps Headquarters has issued orders today to Master Gunnery Sergeant S. Claus, recalling him to active duty, with a RNLTD of 24 Dec 2019.

MGySgt. Claus, known to use the alias “Saint Nicholas”, “Kris Kringle”, “Father Christmas”, or simply “Santa”, is a reserve Marine with 1,743 years of service.

He specializes as a tactical operator of the next generation DEC-25B, Cargo Airborne Delivery (CAnDY) Carrier.

The DEC-25B is contractor-modified and fully equipped with Cargo Antlered Navigation Equipment Sensors (CANES).

It has also been retrofitted with eight high-powered, air-cooled Rangifer Tarandus carrot-fed generators.

As a single seat cargo delivery platform, it is capable of vertical delivery of high-value items, take-off and landing without pilot controlled lighting (PCL).

These unique specifications, coupled with the additional Public Affairs skill sets possessed by Master Gunny Claus, classify the entire deployable package as a low-density, high-demand (LD/HD) asset.

Also recalled, were MSgts Dasher and Dancer, GySgts Prancer and Vixen, SSgts Comet and Cupid, Cpl. Donner, and PFC Blitzen (recently selected for LCpl.)

PFC Rudolph is also authorized to report for duty; however, he must first successfully complete his Phase II SERE Training, which he has failed three times due to a medical condition related to his nose.

Although the above Marines are on orders for only 24 hours, it is anticipated that they will submit a travel claim for 24,901 miles at .56/mile, using a POV. Suitable Government transportation is not available.

As a special operations unit, each member is granted a high level of uniform flexibility, as well as relaxed grooming standards.

Per diem has been modified to include large quantities of hot cocoa and cookies.

Government travel card use has been authorized.

MARSOC Identifies Raider Killed in Vehicle Accident

MARINE CORPS BASE CAMP PENDLETON, Calif. - It is with heavy hearts that U.S. Marine Corps Forces, Special Operations Command announces the death of a Marine Raider following a tactical vehicle accident that occured aboard Camp Pendleton, April 13, 2019.

Staff Sgt. Joshua Braica, 29, a critical skills operator with 1st Marine Raider Battalion, suffered critical injuries when the MRZR tactical vehicle he was driving experienced a rollover. He was medically evacuated to Scripps Memorial Hospital in La Jolla. He did not survive his injuries, passing away the evening of April 14. He was originally from Sacramento, Calif.

An investigation into the incident is underway.

Braica served in the Marine Corps for more than eight years, enlisting in July of 2010. He served as an intelligence specialist with 1st Battalion, 4th Marines, and with Marine Aircraft Group 36. Braica deployed twice during his time in service. In 2011, he deployed as an intelligence specialist with the 13th Marine Expeditionary Unit to the Pacific Command area of operations. Braica completed MARSOC's arduous training pipeline as a critical skills operator in 2015 and deployed with 1st Marine Raider Battalion to the Indo-Pacific Command region from July 2017 to January 2018. His personal decorations include: the Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal with Gold Star in lieu of second award; two Good Conduct Medals; the National Defense Service Medal; the Global War on Terrorism Expeditionary Medal; the Global War on Terrorism Service Medal; and three Sea Service Deployment Ribbons.

Staff Sgt. Braica was a graduate of the Marine Corps Intelligence Training Center; Marksmanship Instructor Course; MARSOC's Individual Training Course; MARSOC's Basic Language Course; the MARSOF Technical Surveillance Course; the MARSOF Network Operators Course; the Basic Airborne Course and Military Freefall School.

He is survived by his wife and son.

Our thoughts are with the family and teammates of Staff Sgt. Braica during this difficult time. MARSOC is providing care and support to them and we urge respect for their privacy as they grieve this loss.
