Photo of Marine barracks whiteboard that says: 'America is not at war. The marines are at war. America is at the mall.'

It’s a tough job, and whether or not you agree with the U.S. administration’s policies, you’ve got to hand it to the marines for doing a job that many politicians (and their families) don’t want to do.

(Psst! Don’t understand the title of this article? It’s adapted from the first lines of the Marines’ Hymn.)
