Military Branch Poll

Going through the posts in the 'Military' thread I thought it would be fun to do a poll on which branches we came from. This is going to be a multi post, so if you were active and reserve, you can check each of them.

We can only have 10 poll choices, so don't think I forgot about other reserve units.

My NG Units

I served in the CA NG and was active duty with the Hawaii Army National Guard...Thinking back, I was working active duty in Diamondhead, could have retired doing that, but decided that I had to be a Ranger, so went RA.

Then that might have been just as it started, dunno', cuz I first heard it from Marine Cpl Barber in Saudi in 1990. He was a big wild-eyed **** too...smart...wanted him on my side.

Must have started shortly after I got out. I'll ask a friend of mine that was stationed with me in Germany. He retired in 98, so I'm sure it was in use then

well as a squid ooh rah was never part of our vocabulary. instead we used hoo yah but that was in spec war, and we certainly couldnt use a sissy marine cry. dont know about the origins. as for the sissy marine comment, let it be known that we loved the marine corps. something comforting about knowing that the marines landing beaches were nice and tidy thanks to us. yeah right marines dont storm beaches anymore than we reconed beaches. seriously it was comforting to know that when the **** hit the fan, we could have some marine backup. some of the best fights i was ever in were against marines, but afterwords we could always be counted on to help each other beat up anyone else. hahaha, good times.

Yea, shellback on USS Kitty Hawk '74, Bluenose on USS Buffalo in '87 (i thimk, it was on New Years and forget which side of the line.) Good lingo nubeee1

Good, then we've got the Ooo Rah! back far as '77 now. I'm wondering if the Marines at Inchon or Omaha Beach used it too? Where's an old guy here for information?

Okinawa eh? Remember White Beach (i thimk that's the name)? We pulled in there emergency port call once on (in) the USS Honolulu for food...stayed a coupla' daze..."E" street maybe, hard to sort through the beers.

Didn't look like fun from where I was sitting, you guys were humping way too hard. And that's just what the public saw. Would have been proud to be a corpsman with those troops, but no I was a CT spook that the FMF let tag along with a few times. You Boats ain't all bad -- my fav ordinanceman was a BM, switched to GM, knew his stuff about both ships and small weapons. Bosun's kept the fleet running, OOORah!
