Marines value brains more than brawn

The Marines traditionally react to change much faster than the Army, so this is not a surprise. It is always nice to see that they have kept up with the changes of the terrorists as much as they can. Semper Gumby - Always Flexible!

Current and Local and Breaking News for Denver, Colorado and the surrounding area : Rocky Mountain News: "Padilla said today's Marines have grown up inside their homes, playing on computers and with video games. They adapt to the use of new technology and equipment more quickly than earlier generations.

But it is also problematic, he says.

'They didn't grow up outside,' learning how to analyze their surroundings or learning about the outdoors, he said. Earlier Marines had skills like hunting and tracking under their belts.

'What we are seeing now is a generation of Marines that don't have those skills,' Padilla said."
