There was a Navy pilot who suffered a terrible injury when the catapult launcher on his aircraft carrier threw his plane into the sea. Due to the quick response of the crew and the ships hospital he miraculously recovered and was left only missing one ear. Since he was not disabled he returned to duty and eventually became an Admiral. One day he interviewed two Navy Master Chiefs and a Marine Sargent Major to be his chief of staff. The first Master Chief was being interviewed by the Admiral when he asked if he was able to hear on that side of his head. That interview ended promptly. The next chief went in to be interviewed and the Admiral discussed various topics with him about the position of Chief of staff. The Admiral was very sensitive about his appearance and the Master chief just had to say "sir how did you lose that ear?". Well that did not go over well and he called in the Marine Sargent Major. The interview went very well and the Admiral was quite impressed. He asked the Sargent Major if he noticed any thing about his appearance. " Well Sir I see you wear contact lenses". The Admiral was quite impressed at the Marines tactfulness and asked how he was able to make that observation. The Marine replied " Well it would be hard to wear glasses with only one fucken ear."

Marines are known to be incredibly "tactful" like that.

The only reason Marines have to ask a Swabby anything is simply asking them to pay off their poker debts.

Usually, those debts are to Marines.
