Maybe I’m Wrong

I know they had GI Joes for all branches, but wasn’t the basic GI Joe in the Army?

Maybe I’m wrong, but I don’t think so.

I had lots of GI Joes when I was a kid in the late 60s and early 70s and they mostly had Army uniforms and stuff.

Which makes this pretty darn funny. (Update: That’s Old NFO’s blog, I didn’t even know he had one, check it out)

The face of GI Joe, the quintessential Soldier, was based on a Marine.

One bad mofo of a Marine, he and his buddies killed so many Japanese soldiers they couldn’t even count them.

Read the whole thing. You’ll enjoy it.

You know what this means?

Maybe it’s true, when the Army and Navy look on Heaven’s scenes they will find the streets are guarded by United States Marines.

      I had a bunch of them, I wish I had saved one or two but alas, I was a kid.

      I think one made it to when I got my BB gun. Poor bastard, he never had a chance.
