PRLog - Nov. 21, 2011 - PORTLAND, Ore. -- The Slogan “No Better Friend, No Worse Enemy” is the motto and combat philosophy of the 1st Marine Division - nicknamed “The Old Breed” and sometimes “Blue Diamond”. Headquartered at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, CA, it is a subordinate unit of the I Marine Expeditionary Force (I MEF). The oldest and largest active duty division in the USMC, it boasts a combat-ready force of more than 19,000 men and women. It’s multi-role, expeditionary ground combat force is one of three active duty division in the Marine Corps today.
Having fought in World War II, the Korean & Vietnam Wars as well as the Gulf and Iraq Wars, they are a force to be reckoned with. Their primary mission is to serve as the ground combat element (GCE) of the I Marine Expeditionary Force or to conduct assault operations, as directed. They are ready to provide the Naval Expeditionary Force (NEF) ground amphibious force entry as well as performing and conducting land operations in any operational environment.
The Slogan is the lifeline for the US Marines. With a Marine as your friend, you have a person who will kill to protect you. With a Marine as your enemy, you have a person who will kill you. The earliest origin of this statement is attributed to the the epitaph of Lucius Cornelius Sulla, famous general and legendary dictator of ancient Rome. His original words..."No friend ever served me, and no enemy ever wronged me, whom I have not repaid in full." I don’t know about you, but I wouldn’t want to be on the “enemy” side of this slogan. Our Marines and every branch of the Armed Forces certainly offer their expertise, their sacrifice and courage throughout their mission and beyond into their life, in their work ethic, and expectations of the rest of us.
