Since this weekend wraps up Zombie Awareness Month I figured that I would share this with everyone and have a little fun. Kanani over at the Kitchen Dispatch posted this gem in my honor recently: THE ROAD TO MOLOCH.
In the past I have commented on why Marines tend to sneer at Hollywood due to their general misrepresentation of the military and the Marine Corps in particular. Although The Road To Moloch was kind of fun to watch my critical 1stSgt’s eye still blazed at the various instances of wrongness portrayed by the “Marines” in the film.
I have never once in 18 years heard anyone say the words: “Now that’s an order!” Seriously, can we have a military movie where no one says that line? My other favorite piece of dialog: “I said ooh-rah!” My desire to cause someone physical pain nearly overwhelms me just for having heard it.
By the way, the last time anyone abandoned their HMMWV in Iraq to go spelunking it ended up looking like this when they came back.
Lastly, let me point out something nearly everyone seems to forget about U.S. Marines. We are successful because we do everything together. It may sound trite but we win because we are a team. Marine fire teams do not enter demon possessed zombie caves all alone. We roll deeper than that. Marine NCOs don’t hang out chasing zombies down insurgent caverns by themselves. They say: “Let’s get the %&$# out of here!” Then call all their friends in the nearest Regimental Combat Team to kick the crap out of the entire mountain range.
I could go on and on here gang.
Next time you need zombies or other demonic creatures dealt with just contact me, please?
