    Hello from France,  I just received as a gift a medal of Marine Corps with , on one side of the medal the symbol of your magazine, and on the other side, three stars in the middle and the name of a Lt Gen.  and also the word “ASSASSIN” !  What that last word would mean on a medal like this ?  I’m sorry, I didn’t have time to ask the retired man (the Lt Gen Mr…)   thanks for answering

    Marvel’s CPT America was a sickbay commando though.  50+ years sleeping?  Does that count for TIG/TIS?

  • Kevino

    Just under 148 mph.

  • DP1982

    You are an idiot.

  • Debrutsid Semper Fi

    73 seconds for 3 miles? yeah no way. that means he runs like what 160 M/ph?

    Interesting comparrison. but Captain America was Army and only by dint of having by selected for Project Rebirth by a general after his persistence in trying to enlist and being rejected. Super hero or not, the Marine still comes out on top.

    Captain (Sel) 1st Lt. Steven P. Rogers all the way. He’s the real deal.

  • Liebas

    Well they are both cute.. Think I will take the marine

  • Jimmy Smith

    Really? Couldn’t find anyone who has actually fought for freedom to run this piece on?

    Captain America is a racist symbol.  Why is a service branch endorsing such a divisive comic book character?  Seems to fly in the face of the recent Progress we’ve achieved in the areas of LGBT acceptance, minority rights, and women’s equality.  I guess there are still some fanatic holdouts in the Corps for apple pie and Jim Crow.
