    Would someone give me an explanation about American soldiers?

    I know that there are different kinds. Army, marines. etc...What other kinds of American soldiers are there? Could you tell me in order which kind is more skillful?

    I don't know if you could call one type of US soldier more skillful than another. They each have different missions they are asked to perform and have the skills to do so.
    Respect it.

    Well the Marines are a big bunch of sissies, depend on the squids to move em around.

    Airfarce? Puhleese! Nancy fly boys....

    Army, another bunch of whiners, just more of them than the poofter Marines.

    Navy? Ever see Men at Work...nuff said.



    Oh the flames to be had now, I think I'll just hide for a few weeks now.

    Hopefully this will explain it all...

    The Differential Theory of US Armed Forces
    (Snake Model)

    The Differential Theory of US Armed Forces (Snake Model) upon encountering a
    snake in the Area of Operations or A Diversified Approach to Military
    Operations:

    Infantry: Snake smells them, leaves area.

    Airborne: Lands on and kills the snake.

    Armor: Runs over snake, laughs, and looks for more snakes.

    Aviation: Has Global Positioning Satellite coordinates to snake. Can't find
    snake. Returns to base for refuel, crew rest and manicures.

    Ranger: Plays with snake, then eats it.

    Field Artillery: Kills snake with massive Time On Target barrage with three
    Forward Artillery Brigades in support. Kills several hundred civilians as
    unavoidable collateral damage. Mission is considered a success and all
    participants (i.e. cooks, mechanics and clerks) are awarded Silver Stars.

    Special Forces: Makes! contact with snake, ignores all State Department
    directives and Theater Commander Rules of Engagement by building rapport
    with snake and winning its heart and mind. Trains it to kill other snakes.
    Files enormous travel voucher upon return.

    Combat Engineer: Studies snake. Prepares in-depth doctrinal thesis in
    obscure 5-series Field Manual about how to defeat snake using
    countermobility assets. Complains that maneuver forces don't understand how
    to properly conduct doctrinal counter-snake ops.

    Navy SEAL: Expends all ammunition and calls for naval gunfire support in
    failed attempt to kill snake. Snake bites SEAL and retreats to safety.
    Hollywood makes fantasy film in which SEALs kill Muslim extremist snakes.

    Navy: Fires off 50 cruise missiles from various types of ships, kills snake
    and makes presentation to Senate Appropriations Committee on how Naval
    forces are the most cost-effective means of anti-snake force projection.

    Marine: Kills snake by accident while looking for souvenirs. Local civilians
    demand removal of all US forces from Area of Operations.

    Marine Recon: Follows snake, gets lost.

    Combat Controllers: Guides snake elsewhere.

    Para-Rescue Jumper: Wounds snake in initial encounter, then works feverishly
    to save snake's life.

    Supply: (NOTICE: Your anti-snake equipment is on backorder.)

    Transport pilot: Receives call for anti-snake equipment, delivers two weeks
    after due date.

    F-16 pilot: Finds snake, drops two CBU-87 cluster bombs, and misses target
    due to weather.

    AH-64 Apache pilot: Unable to locate snake, snakes don't show well on
    infra-red.

    UH-60 Blackhawk pilot: Finds snake on fourth pass after snake starts bonfire
    to mark Landing Zone. Rotor wash blows snake into the fire.

    B-52 pilot: Pulls ARCLIGHT mission on snake, kills snake and every other
    living thing within two miles of target.

    ! Missile crew: Lays in target coordinates to snake in 20 seconds, but can't
    receive authorization from National Command Authority to use nuclear
    weapons.

    Intelligence officer: Snake? What snake? Only 4 of 35 indicators of snake
    activity are currently active. We assess the potential for snake activity as
    LOW.

    Judge Advocate General (JAG): Snake declines to bite, citing grounds of
    professional courtesy.

    CH-47 Pilot: Slingleg breaks in flight while slingloading anti-snake
    equiptment, pilot cuts slingload. Slingload lands on snake and kills it.
    Crew cheif uses dead snake to replace broken slingleg.

    Navy Pilot: Draped snake around neck at Tail Hook to pick up chicks.

    Military Police: Gave snake a sobriety test for not moving in a straight
    line.

    Signal: Broadcasts 200,000+ watt transmissions in support of anti-snake
    missions, accidentally electrocuted snake in the process.

    Corps of Engineers: Surveyed and r! esearched area for plans on improving
    flood plain, cant do it because snake is on the endangered species list.

    Cooks: Snake sneaks in chow hall. Snake dies of food poisoning.
