*************************************************
"Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines"

Notwithstanding all the whys and wherefores, it is time that we (Marines) heed Col Sully's sage advice and begin ourselves to capitalize Soldier, Sailor, Airman, as well as Marine. The Marines were first to do so for themselves, at their own initiative, with a change to the MCPM way back sometime in the very early 1960s, as I recall. After a few years, or longer, others outside the Corps picked up on this and followed suit. It is only fitting that we follow through on this and begin to practice this "same respect" spoken of in the "quote" below.

"Please note that I always capitalize "Soldiers," "Sailors," and "Airmen." In my book they deserve the same respect that I pay to my beloved Marines."

Semper Fidelis,
tientsin (Sully)
