This is a story that makes an American feel good. The United States Marines, the proverbial,”tip of the spear” has got a new emblem a lot themselves, and it’s been a long time coming. The Marines as all Branches of the service are the cream of our American Youth and should be respected for it.
The insignia features a gold bald eagle, wings outstretched, grasping the tip of a golden stiletto dagger, a medallion of the Southern Cross constellation, and MARSOC’s motto: “Spiritus Invictus,” which means “unconquerable spirit.”
According to the Washington Post, those responsible for creating the insignia were enlisted members of MARSOC, also known as “Raiders,” a name given to them in 2015.
I have nothing but respect for those who do not take this country for granted, and are willing to defend it to the point of risking their own lives to do so. Is it not ironic that a good percentage of military personnel are not four-year college graduates, and they love their country.
Then we have college students, who somehow become communists and flag burners. Where do they get these ideas? Can it get any more clear for anyone to understand? Good Luck and stay safe Marines, you’ve earned our respect.
