USMC Movies and Shit
Generation Kill – This 7 part mini series follows a platoon in the 1st Recon Marines during the first wave of the American-led assault on Baghdad in 2003. It’s based off the Generation Kill book that was written by Evan Wright, a Rolling Stone Journalist who was embedded with 1st Recon. It’s the most realistic portrayal of the US Marine Corps. If you’re a Marine, you’ll get a laugh out of this show. If you don’t feel like watching the show then at least read these quotes from the show. “Sgt. Maj. Sixta : POLICE THAT MOOSE-TACHE!!!”
Semper Fi: Always Faithful – Marine Corps Master Sgt. Jerry Ensminger was a devoted Marine for nearly twenty-five years. As a drill instructor he lived and breathed the “Corps” and was responsible for indoctrinating thousands of new recruits with its motto Semper Fidelis or “Always Faithful”. When Jerry’s nine-year old daughter Janey died of a rare type of leukemia, his world collapsed. As a grief-stricken father, he struggled for years to make sense of what happened. His search for answers led to the shocking discovery of a Marine Corps cover-up of one of the largest water contamination incidents in U.S. history. Semper Fi: Always Faithful follows Jerry’s mission to expose the Marine Corps and force them to live up to their motto to the thousands of soldiers and their families exposed to toxic chemicals. His fight reveals a grave injustice at North Carolina’s Camp Lejeune and a looming environmental crisis at military sites across the country.
The Invisible War – An investigative and powerfully emotional documentary about the epidemic of rape of soldiers within the US military, the institutions that perpetuate and cover up its existence, and its profound personal and social consequences.
