"From seamanship to field maneuvering and from camps to cabins. The vicissitudes and changes of a marine's life make him an all around fighter. One day he is doing duty on deck and the next in a field review. Another day he will be helping with the ship's guns and in a few hours storming a castle. Nothing in the way of aggression comes amiss, and the brave boys are always ready to change their 'sea legs' to the solid marching of the foot solder, or vice versa." - Johnston
