Granted I know nothing about the military but lettuce discuss. If the Army was as small as the USMC would they have the same "higher" standards and discipline as the USMC? If the USMC was as large as the Army (and all its extra support shit) would they be able to maintain their current standard? Now this isnt an argument or discussion over whether or not the marines are really so much better than the army or vice versa...but I'm sure simple size plays a big role in this. I'm sure there are a lot more "marine quality" soldiers than there are marines - granted thats just the nature of the beast since its so large but it gets you thinking. This might be too deep for this forum but shoot I want to hear what you guys have to say.
