Evening all,

 

Writing a paper and am in need of as many quotes from Marines during combat in World War II as I can find, or quotes ABOUT Marines which were coined during World War II.

 

Please fire away, many thanks!

There is always the classic from Eleanor Roosevelt...

 

“The Marines I have seen around the world have the cleanest bodies, the filthiest minds, the highest morale, and the lowest morals of any group of animals I have ever seen. Thank God for the United States Marine Corps"

"We're not accustomed to occupying defensive positions. It's destructive to morale."

 

—Lt. Gen. H. M. "Howlin' Mad" Smith, Iwo Jima, 1945

 

"In our corps without responsibility and discipline we would not have won the Battle of Iwo Jima."

—Lt. Gen. H. M. "Howlin' Mad" Smith, After Action Report on Iwo Jima, 1945
