Marine Corps named most prestigious branch of service in America

So, distinguished members of Mitchell’s Militia…

It appears the Marine Corps has once again earned a noteworthy ranking…

No, this time, the Marine Corps was not ranked the worst branch to join… (See: Marine Corps ranked worst service branch to join, and I love it.)

Rather, it was named the most prestigious.

Seriously, make sure you check out this story. It’s really interesting, especially how the Navy is perceived. And this isn’t some recent survey that just started a few years ago. Instead, it’s been going since the 1940s.

Let me know your thoughts below, and have a great night! (Hat tip, Old Gyrene.)

Stan R. Mitchell

Oak Ridge, Tenn.

P.S. If you enjoy fast-paced books, you just might like my works. “Sold Out” tracks the life of a legendary Marine Sniper after a CIA unit decides to kill him for reasons of national security. “Little Man, and the Dixon County War” tells the uphill fight a young deputy faces after surviving three years of war only to find himself in the sights of a mighty cattle baron. And “Soldier On,” a short novel, follows the lives of several German soldiers in a depleted infantry company trying to make it through the final, miserable months of World War II.

  1. I should have said this up above, but please no trashing of any service. I respect all who have served, regardless of branch or MOS.

    And as fellow Marine Michael LoGiudice said in an earlier post, only 1/10 of 1 percent of the population actually even serves. So, show some respect, please, but DO share why you think the public perceives some of these things — assuming you can do so without insulting the other branches.

  2. Did we really need a poll to tell us this? I kid! Talked to a young man the other day, did two tours of Iraq with the Army. Grunts is grunts. SF.

  3. I can’t say enough for those who serve, regardless of military branch. There used to be an old saying, “War is hell, but combat is a #######.” I think we all remember the saying. However, I remember one rocket attack that hit Bien Hoa AB in 1970. One rocket took at their Mess Hall (during meal time), killing cooks and non-combat personal. So I want to thank every man and woman who served, not only our brave combat marines, soldiers, sailors, and airmen, but everyone in uniform. When they put on the uniform, they go where sent, without question. God Bless you guys.
