Birthday Chauvinism

Why do you join the Army?

Why do you join the Navy?

Why do you join the Marines?

Things haven't changed a lot since World War I...
OK, it is a little over the top, but it's our birthday...

Trivia aside: (not trivia for Marines, though)
What is wrong with this phrase proposed by my campaign manager a couple months ago?
"this ex-Marine Corp JAG"
There are two cringers and a quibble - can either of the two readers we have left find them?

Happy Birthday, Marines!

1. Once a marine, always a marine. So you can't be "ex" Marine Corp JAG?

2. The A in JAG stands for Army?

The two cringers:
1. There is only one ex-Marine - Lee Harvey Oswald. Call those of us not on active duty former Marines.

2. The Marines are not a Corp-oration We're a Corps - a body of Marines

The quibble:
3. JAG stands for Judge Advocate General - there's only one of them, but "JAG" sounds better than "JA" and is cleaner then "JAFL."
