<quoted text>You know Mike I am curious to hear all these claims of military service, high IQ and general belief of superiority. I find it amusing that this information is volunteered without solicitation and tends to arise from a single group of participants on this thread. The part that I find most amusing is the claims fly in the face of the inarticulate, erratic, vulgar, ignorant and uninformed posts made by the claimants. Where is this intelligence, authority, respect and decorum to be found that would support the claims.
My guess is whether true or not, these self-agrandizing claims are made with the intent to intimidate and impress us. Obviously they feel their intellectual ability and arguments never will. That may be the one intelligent aspect about them. You probably have come to this conclusion as well, I just wanted to write it out.
Yet still they all look humble compared to Buck Crick.

I was just being a bit of a smart-ass. I've been known to do that.

Yeah, my dad was the really smart one of the family. If I remember right, he tested at 164 when he went into the Marines. 85 years old now and still going strong.

Mike F and Dude both of you need to go back to page 4227 post 89040 and the next page see post 89055 for the claims of instant promotion due to IQ and the one finger death move. They were made by KJV and not me. Dud, while out on patrol I was a squad leader.

Yes, I indicated that I noted my mistake.

And I can see that you were not officer material.

MikeF may have conflated you with KJV, if you look back at my posts I never did. It seemed from what I could have read of yours that you were supporting the KJV in his obvious lies.

I went back and quoted KJV directly before you made this post of yours and listed the page number and post number where KJV lied.

I did not serve, I was in college just after Vietnam ended and service was at an all time low then. My dad was a Marine and got go camping at a nice warm spot in Korea. Perhaps you have heard of it, Google search the Chosin Reservoir if you haven't. I do respect all of the armed services, the Marines more than the others. That is why when I see a lie like KJV made and somebody else that seems to be supporting him, I launch into attack mode.

You are half right on the promotion, after the squad leader was WIA I moved up to fill the position. Far as know everyone in said squad is still alive today .

I was pointing out IQ was only ONE of the determining factors of admission to OCS. One who makes seargent in the corps in 6 years cannot be too shabby,after my dad had a crippling near fatal illness at near the end of my elistment I seen I was needed at home to help Mom take care of Dad and the Farm. If the career was not cut short noone knows how far one could have gone. After 6 years one can say they did their share.

No explanation needed. I am a bit of a smart-ass in my own right, but that comes through in my posts without saying I would venture.

Interesting. My father served in the Marines during Korea. He would have been about 86 this year.

Is there some connection with the offspring of US Marines and a career or interest in science?
