    To bad there wasn’t a big can of whoopass shown on screen on Bad Guy #1, but I was pleased to see Bad Guy #2 squirming like the vermin he was to get out of there. Our hero outdid some movies I’ve seen, and was especially impressive because Bad Guy #1 had his finger on the trigger. That was a very high risk move, beautifully executed.
    I doubt I’ll ever meet our hero, but if I do, dinner and drinks are on me.

    I figure he uses a wheelbarrow.
    Maybe 2.

    not certain, but i believe wheelbarrows are issued when you enlist in the USMC

    ^ Not quite. Enlisting isn’t enough. They have to be Marines first, and that doesn’t happen until they get through The Crucible,the culmination of their Basic. If the recruits get through The Crucible, they get to handle the wheelbarrow for a few minutes, check it for size , and then they are issued one at the end of their graduation parade, when they are officially Marines.
    We never see that in the videos, but I just know they are there, right off the edge of the grinder, and being Marines, they will have to spit shine it and give it a name.
    At least that’s what I think, never having been a Marine.

    i imagine that you are closer to correct than i am. i’m not a Marine, either. but my brother was a Marine in Vietnam and my father was a USN doctor, on Guam, during Korea, who spoke quite highly of them. He said that soldiers got carried off the troop planes with injuries that Marines walked off with.
