USMC Facilities under fire at home

" There are only two kinds of people that understand Marines: Marines and those who have met them in battle. Everyone else has a second-hand opinion." Unknown

Looks like someone in Virginia has an issue with the USMC. All I can say is they best make peace with their Maker because the Marines do not play around and if they continue to use US Marines locations for target practice, they will find out why you don't pick fights with the best.

Having served in a Marine Command, I hope they catch the idjit and prosecute him to the full extent of the law....Bad enough the Marines are under fire in Afghanistan, but it should not happen at home. Semper FI !

Recruiting station shots linked to 2 incidents

An overnight shooting at a vacant Marine Corps recruiting station in Chantilly this week has been definitively linked to two recent attacks on U.S. military buildings in Northern Virginia.

The FBI's Washington Field Office announced Thursday that evidence collected at the recruiting station Tuesday morning matched evidence found at the scenes of similar shootings at the National Museum of the Marine Corps in Triangle on Oct. 17 and at the Pentagon in the early hours of Oct. 19. FBI officials said the same weapon was used in all three shootings, but they have not indicated what type of weapon was used or the caliber of ammunition found at the scenes.

Each shooting occurred late at night or early in the morning, when the buildings were either vacant or when it was unlikely that people would be there.

Law enforcement officials said that they have no sense of a motive for the shootings.

"We're following all possible leads at this point,'' a said Andrew Ames, a spokesman for the FBI's Washington Field Office. The office's Joint Terrorism Task Force is leading the investigation.

Where is Gibbs when you need him? (The good Gibbs, not the WH weenie)

Maybe like this -

(Gibbs and Tony are in the boxing ring)
Tony: Did you learn to box in the Marines?
Gibbs: The Corps doesn't teach boxing.
Tony: Your loss.
(Gibbs takes Tony apart and leaves him flat on his back, winded and hurting)
Gibbs: They teach fighting.
