hmmm seems pretty lame to me. let them do what they want.

now everyone will just go get tats before they sign up....problem solved.

my grandpa fought and served our country in the navy in world war II proudly wearing a tat on his forearm. ;-D

Having tats has no effect on the way we work, fight, or serve the people of this great country. As far as tarnishing the image of the Marine Corps, I think that is crap as well. The image most people have of Marines is in Dress Blues (this is our best dress). Guess what???? In this uniform, you cannot see below your elbow or knee.


Like you said, once we sign up, we belong to the US Govt. For instance, when I was in Hawaii, a friend of mine was given Non-Judicial-Punishment for having to miss work due to a severe sunburn. The punishment stated "Destruction to Government Property".

With that said, there are many other ways that they could control my life....but they don't.


thanks Daniel i wanted to hear from you. My buddy just got out of the Marines after serving in Iraq and now is a firefighter. He has a Tat on his left arm above the elbow that has to deal with his platoon

Guess I think the people that serve and protect our country should be able to do what they want. If they want a tattoo, let em have it.

I always thought there were regulations regarding tats that were visible while in uniform. as roy said destruction of government property.

but oh well the government own your a$$ when your in the service and it's not democracy.

Remember he got laid off? I imagine he doesn't have as much computer access anymore. Or he's just not sitting in front of a computer all day anymore. :-b
