Alistair McGrigor

We have taken into account your mental disorder and the obsession this caused with hobbies and the debts you racked up. But this debt could have been dealt with another way and not by stealing from your employer.feedback

Alistair McGrigor

Anyone who steals from their employer should expect to be dismissed and you will be dismissed.feedback

Tommy Mørk

They were wearing uniforms that said u.s. marines.feedback

Ryan Culberson

Today is the first day in my civilian journey post Marine Corps. I like to thank everyone who over the years have been there for me.feedback

Abby Deutsch

I didn't have a car, I didn't have a job, I didn't have any money, how are you going to take a girl out? I desperately wanted to date her and I just took too long to ask, because right after I turned 17, I was off to the Marines.feedback

Kate Upton

I normally do a mixture of body weight training and weight training [so this] was different than how I do workouts, and I think that's why I was also really excited to switch it up. To make sure you're body doesn't get too used to just one type of workout. It's ultimately way more difficult when you're not used to the workout.feedback

Kate Upton

It was definitely a very intense workout, but I had a lot of fun. I'm feeling it a little bit today! I always knew the Marines are very disciplined, but, man they really didn't let me get away with anything. I thought they'd be ok with me having a little bit of a cheat on those numbers but no, you do those 10 pushups!feedback

Scott Swift

The U.S. Navy and Marine Corps divers joined a search today assessing sealed compartments and damaged parts of the ship. The divers were able to locate some remains in those sealed compartments during their search today. Additionally, the Malaysian Navy has reported that they have located potential remains. They are working to confirm and identify those remains.feedback

Ashley Rosales

My dad was in the Marines before I was born, and he always talked about it. He was so honored that he served. I wanted to make him proud.feedback

H.R. McMaster

The United States military is locked and loaded every day – and especially those who are on the front lines of freedom, such as those that are stationed in South Korea and those soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines stationed in northeast Asia, or rotate there. We have tremendous military capabilities. We have a very high degree of readiness. And so the United States military is always locked and loaded. The purpose of capable, ready forces is to preserve peace and prevent war. And George Washington said it, The most effective way of preserving peace is to be prepared for war.feedback

Scott Strasemeier

I don't think having media at our practice has anything to do with whether we win or lose; we're going to win football games if we don't turn the ball over and can run the ball. We want to sell our program, and the best way to sell our program is through the media. And for our student-athletes, the guys on the team, it's great practice for when they go on to the military. They're going to be leading enlisted men and women in the Navy and the Marine Corps; they have to be able to stand up and talk to people. I think interviews are great practice for that.feedback

Valerie Cross

We have so many awesome memories, but to know that we will never make any more with him is unbearable.feedback

Ray Calzada

We are all in disbelief and cannot fathom the loss of our son. The grief my wife has to bear is immeasurable.feedback

Ruben Gallego

It is ironic you say this on Purple Heart Day. My Marine Corps Company had 48 Purple Hearts, almost all were millennials. #purpleheartday.feedback

Marise Payne

Our thoughts are with all those affected by this tragic event and the Australian Government stands ready to support the U.S. further in any way we can.feedback

Michael Paech

There was a light northeasterly wind with high cloud ... but that would have had no impact whatsoever on conditions at the surface.feedback

Ash Carter

Moreover, we have transgender soldiers, sailors, airmen, and Marines - real, patriotic Americans - who I know are being hurt by an outdated, confusing, inconsistent approach that's contrary to our value of service and individual merit.feedback

Raul Benitez

They were using high-powered rifles, not pistols, which justified the government's decision to use the marines.feedback

Allan Oshea

Everybody who's been here before me has a story – 'I did this, I did that.' With them it turned into an ego trip in a way. Yeah, you came here and you performed your mission. But now I am here to help the Afghans perform their mission.feedback

Matthew Reid

You carry that baggage with you – of the places we fought and sacrificed, and to see it rolled back. Dwelling on the past is just not useful, because we have a job to do going forward.feedback

Matthew Reid

It went back to what, I think, you could have reasonably predicted it would have – because, fundamentally, we weren't here long enough.feedback

Alan Stinar

These things are workhorses that can do almost any job the Marines need them to do, and during the war they were very, very busy.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

Whenever I can, I try to work with students who are doing research projects. I was at Stanford University for a little over three years after I got out of the Marines before I got surprised by this request I'd come back and be the secretary of defense. So, I've always tried to help students because I think we owe it to you young folks to pass on what we learned going down the road so that you can make your own mistakes, not the same ones we made.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

History will show you not all the answers, but it'll tell you a lot of the questions to ask and furthermore, it will show you how other people have dealt successfully or unsuccessfully with similar type issues. For one thing it's scary as all get out at times, but whether it be the Peace Corp or the Marine Corps . . . just try to put others first and it will pay back in so many ways that you'd be a lot happier in life. What you have to do is make certain that your foreign policy is led by the diplomats, not by the military.feedback

Jake Silverstein

Shooting this recruit from the back and making the image black and white abstracted the individual and made him function as a visual symbol for all Marines, including Raheel Siddiqui, the young man whose death lies at the center of this harrowing tale. The extreme close-up conveys both strength and vulnerability.feedback

Seth Moulton

One thing I learned in the marines is you're responsible for everything you do or fail to do, your platoon does or fails to do. I think that our leadership owes us an explanation for what happened, how the resources were spent, but also a plan for going forward and that's got to be a part of the discussion … At the end of the day, we've got to win back seats in 2018.feedback

Gabrielle Giffords

I thought of you in my darkest days, the soldiers, sailors, airmen and Marines of the United States of America … You make me proud. You make America proud.feedback

Edgard Arevalo

The marines were able to inflict heavy casualties to the terrorist group.feedback

Edgard Arevalo

This temporary setback has not diminished our resolve a bit,'. It instead primed up our determination to continue our prudent advances to neutralize the enemy, save the innocent lives trapped in the fight, and set the conditions for the rehabilitation and reconstruction of Marawi.feedback

Harry Kane

It was an amazing experience. Even just talking to the Marines, hearing stories of what they've been through. It was a bit of a surprise.feedback

Kieran Trippier

Me and Walks put our tent up the wrong way round to start. It was getting a bit too dark so we didn't have time to put it back round and, because it was already up, we thought we may as well sleep in it. We were the only ones to get our tent the wrong way round. All the lads put the tents up quickly as it was getting dark. We only had a short time to do it. I was trying to reach out and grab the marines at the other end – and I could not find him. That was the scariest. But we all did it. This is the first time I ever did anything like that.feedback

Gareth Southgate

These guys represent Queen and country, and we do the same – but the consequences of failure for the Royal Marines are far higher. That gives us a good context and comparison. For me, the greatest outcome was that we worked as one team - support staff and players. I think there was a real connection formed between everybody, and it was also a great life experience for everybody.feedback

Gareth Southgate

We wanted to come and put the guys into a different environment, something they weren't expecting. The Marines talk about a dislocated expectation and that was part of the theme of the camp – how will we be adaptable in moments of difficulty for us as a team? There were some team objectives around pushing themselves beyond where they thought they could go and knowing you don't want to let any of your team-mates down. We wanted to expose the guys to an elite environment with one of the elite forces in the world. We wanted them to see that there's another world out there.feedback

Gareth Southgate

We're always thinking about football and the small world we're in, but there are life experiences that'll stay with you forever and I think this will stay with everyone – from our side and the Marines' side. We've seen their standards and the pride they have in their identity and the green beret, which is a powerful message for us to link with the Three Lions. We've got to be brave in terms of how we play and what we do.feedback

Matt Rose

The military likes to set their own rules, even if it doesn't always make sense. The Army thinks they know what's best for the Army, and Marines think they know what's best for the Marines. But they all have different medical requirements that shouldn't have any dissimilarities.feedback

Erin Demchko

I am extremely humbled to be a part of such a big production. Professional actors can keep their jobs, though. I'd rather be a Marine. The water was 27 degrees and coated with a layer of thick ice. Giving the film production staff what they wanted, while maintaining my bearing as a Marine officer and trying not to look cold, was a challenge. I fight every day to sharpen my mind, strengthen my body, and to take care of the Marines to my right and left. My fighting spirit is the continuous drive that I have to accomplish my mission.feedback

Paul Kennedy - Fugro

We're facing headwinds now that we didn't have even a year ago. There's a train wreck coming for some folks. They're not getting tail winds that they used to have – the high unemployment, the money that was associated with enlistment bonuses.feedback

Justine Elena

American citizens should be proud of their military, and the military should be an example of honor, but I don't believe that will be the case if Marines United behavior continues.feedback

Paddy Ashdown

This Conservative Government has slashed funding on defence, cut our Royal Marines and left our troops on the front line without basic equipment. Billions has been spent on big ticket items that we may not even have enough troops to use. Of course adequate spending on defence is welcome and necessary, but this is a piece of last-minute chicanery to cover up the Conservative's dismal record. No wonder Britain's top generals have accused the Tories of trying to deceive the public over defence cuts.feedback

Abdul Jabar Qahraman - US Marine Corps

There is no contact between the security forces and the local people. People do not believe the promises of security forces, and the security forces always remain inside their bases, they don't get out.feedback

Ronnie C. Mills

It's kind of disheartening – the sacrifices you and your Marines made, and to see it go back to where it was. It will make a huge impact. Everybody here has sacrificed and been here before, and it means a lot to them to see this succeed.feedback

Alexander Blackman

Al has been advised by police to change his identity in view of the perceived threats but I don't believe he will. This is a Royal Marines Colour Sergeant for heaven's sake and it's not how these boys behave! And you could say this highlights the whole tragedy of this case and the loss of a brave soldier at a time when his country needs him most.feedback

Caitlyn Jenner

Here's the deal: yes, I did vote for Trump, but here's the deal breaker with the Republican party. And the deal breaker is, you mess with my community...you don't give us equality and a fair shot, I'm coming after you. When it comes to all equality issues, for the entire LGBT community, what we need is federal guidance. Just like the previous administration said that it was OK to serve as a trans person in the military. We have frontline people, OK? I'm talking Marines, trans guys, on the frontline, fighting for our country. I'm trying to get, especially the Republican party, to make a change.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

I am today surrounded by talented and committed patriots. These are men and women who signed up for a life of discretion and impact - for a career in service to their country, ” said CIA Director Mike Pompeo at his first public speech. He was speaking of the professionals throughout the intelligence community who work just as soldiers, sailors, Marines and airmen do to protect their fellow Americans. Pompeo explained.feedback

Kate Wallace Nunneley

As we see with the story about the women in the Marines, their personhood gets overlooked and the men want to only focus on their sexuality.feedback

Mark Thompson - Serious Fraud Office

I acted recklessly and thoughtlessly for how this could affect – did affect – the Marine Corps' image. It was non-professional where it crossed the line into a physical relationship.feedback

Ann Bernard

We love the Marine Corps, and this is about making it better. We fought the fight and thought we got the job done, and now we're realizing we're not quite there yet. We're not going to allow another generation of junior Marines that has this mentality that does not serve the Marine Corps at all.feedback

Erin Kirk-Cuomo

This is a good a start. These guys weren't advocating for the assault of women and they're being punished. The Marine Corps is taking swift action, and that's exactly what we need.feedback

Kirsten Gillibrand

Have you actually investigated and found guilty anybody? If we can't crack Facebook, how are we supposed to be able to confront Russian aggression and cyberhacking throughout our military?feedback

Erika Butner

A bitch; you're a whore or you're a lesbian, . I'm not blaming the drill instructors. They were preparing us to have thick skin because it is so ingrained in this culture that they don't know how to change it, so they go with the grain. We're taught to go with the flow and accept the culture as is, or else we face repercussions.feedback

Paul Zukunft

I'm delighted that Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps are being plused up, but we've got nothing left. The time to replace this legacy – or perhaps geriatric – class of cutters arrived over a decade ago.feedback

Michael Fallon

We have got 7,000 Royal Marines. The actual balance, the number of sailors and the number of marines, that's a matter for the First Sea Lord to keep under review. The Royal Navy is growing. Within the Royal Navy, you have the Royal Marines as well and there has to be balance between the two. Our defence relationship with the US is unprecedented in its depth and scope. As we leave the EU, our bilateral relationships matter more than ever, so we'll be enhancing our cooperation and investing more in our joint F-35 fast jet programme.feedback

Michael Fallon

But like any large organisation we, of course, continue to look for efficiencies and all the savings from efficiencies are put back into investment to the new ships, the new planes, the new armoured vehicles that we need.feedback

Michael Fallon

We have got 7,000 Royal Marines. The actual balance, the number of sailors and the number of marines, that's a matter for the First Sea Lord to keep under review. What I am saying to you is we have 7,000 Royal Marines and it is for the First Sea Lord, who runs the Royal Navy, to look all the time at the balance between marines and sailors, and I have not agreed any cut in the size of the Royal Marines. What we are looking at is the way in which our armed forces work, the different tasks that they have and we are constantly looking to see that they are fit for purpose in what we do.feedback

Shawn Wylde

These groups have been around for a long time, but when anyone would try to report them or criticize them, they would just get shouted down or harassed off the internet. But Mattis is so loved by Marines, so respected, when he says something everybody listens, even these weird angry groups of Marine veterans.feedback

Shawn Wylde

This is really about something broader than just naked pics. It's about what we want the Marine Corps to be. We need to make it clear that we aren't going to treat women like garbage.feedback

James LaPorta

The Marine Corps can't do this alone. The internet is too huge. We need to police ourselves.feedback

James LaPorta

There seems to be no regret. They were using racial slurs and talking about getting pictures of his wife.feedback

Justine Elena

Almost every woman I know in the Marines has faced this kind of harassment, and you try to show you are tough enough to ignore it. But at some point, by ignoring it, you just condone it.feedback

Robert B. Neller

What is it going to take for you to accept these [female] Marines as Marines?feedback

Jeanne Shaheen

It's hard to believe that something's really going to be done when we hear this repeated again and again and we see these kinds of situations again and again. So why should we believe it's going to be different this time than it's been in the past?feedback

Kirsten Gillibrand

I have to say when you say to us it's got to be different, that rings hollow. There's no mystery that this has been going on for a very long time. It was right in front of you and the command to do something about since 2013.feedback

Justine Elena

"We need to stand up and say that is not what the Marines is about,"feedback

Kirsten Gillibrand

When you say to us it's got to be different, that rings hollow. If we can't crack Facebook, how are we supposed to be able to confront Russian aggression and cyber-hacking throughout our military? It is a serious problem when we have members of our military denigrating female Marines who will give their life for this country in the way they have with no response from leadership.feedback

Kirsten Gillibrand

We have countless victims who have come forward – and they're not just being harassed online. Once their name, face, where they are stationed is posted, do you think the harassment ends online? It doesn't. I spoke to a civilian yesterday who has continued to be harassed in her community because her ex-boyfriend exploited her online. Why does it have to be different – because you, all of the sudden, feel that it has to be different? Who has been held accountable? If we can't crack Facebook, how are we supposed to be able to confront Russian aggression and cyber hacking throughout our military?feedback

Thomas Brennan

It has been suggested that my wife should be raped as a result of this, and people are openly suggesting I should be killed.feedback

Gloria Allred

As a result of the posting, many men who were either current or former United States Marines posted comments on that page that were obscene.feedback

Erika Butner

I can tell you that this exact behaviour leads to the normalisation of sexual harassment and even sexual violence. I don't know how we go here… A couple of years ago, it was just people making fun of other Marines messing up online, now it's this. I wanted to be a positive influence on the community. And this diminished me. My voice didn't matter because my nudes were out there. Right now I'm supposed to be able to trust every male Marine. And with some of the stuff I see them saying about women, that's just not happening.feedback

Erika Butner

I can tell you that this exact behavior leads to the normalization of sexual harassment and even sexual violence.feedback

Marisa Woytek

I love the Marine Corps, but after seeing that, I wouldn't re-enlist.feedback

Kirsten Gillibrand

This unacceptable behavior spotlights a culture of disrespect for female service members that undermines good order and discipline in the military and weakens military readiness.feedback

Erika Butner

As a Marine Corps veteran, I am disheartened and disgusted with this scandal. Victim blaming and the excuse that some are giving that 'boys will be boys' needs to stop. I knew some of these women did not give their permission to post their photos and some were not aware that they were posted.feedback

Marisa Woytek

These people aren't stopping. They're making it a point to be worse. Comments were made regarding sexual violence.feedback

Kally Wayne - US Marine Corps

I felt like my privacy had been taken away from me. Having to go through being harassed for every day of my life for the past year because of a mistake I made four years ago is not anything anyone deserves to go through. It is extremely widespread. If it happened to me, it's got to be happening to a lot of other females.feedback

Kelsie Stone

Some of the comments have them mentioning how they liked what they saw, how could they get some of that or whatever. I've been called a whore for even sending pictures like that in the first place.feedback

Kate Hendricks Thomas

In 2014, on a popular Facebook page called “Doctrine Man,” a serving Army National Guard officer wrote “let the butt hurt begin” in a thread discussing an article about one of us, Paula Broadwell, and, below it, posted a graphic image of a woman’s partially naked body impaled by a pitchfork. (Editors note: This link [].feedback

Ryan E. Alvis - US Marine Corps

The Marine Corps is deeply concerned about the allegations regarding the derogatory online comments and sharing of salacious photographs in a closed website. This behaviour destroys morale, erodes trust, and degrades the individual.feedback

Mac Thornberry

Degrading behavior of this kind is entirely unacceptable. I expect the Marine Corps to investigate this matter fully with appropriate consequences for those who willingly participated.feedback

Robert B. Neller

For anyone to target one of our Marines, online or otherwise, in an inappropriate manner, is distasteful and shows an absence of respect.feedback

Ryan E. Alvis - US Marine Corps

We are thankful that Thomas Brennan, a Marine veteran, notified the Marine Corps and NCIS about what he witnessed on the 'Marines United' page. It allowed us to take immediate action to have the explicit photos taken down and to prepare to support potential victims.feedback

Ryan E. Alvis - US Marine Corps

We are thankful that Thomas Brennan, a Marine veteran, notified the Marine Corps and NCIS about what he witnessed on the 'Marines United' page. It allowed us to take immediate action to have the explicit photos taken down and to prepare to support potential victims. We are exploring what actions should be taken to best address this form of harassment in the future.feedback

Ryan E. Alvis - US Marine Corps

The Marine Corps is deeply concerned about allegations regarding the derogatory online comments and sharing of salacious photographs in a closed website. This behavior destroys morale, erodes trust, and degrades the individual. The Marine Corps does not condone this sort of behavior, which undermines our core values. As General Neller said in his recent Message to the Force, the Marine Corps' success in battle depends on trust, mutual respect, and teamwork.feedback

Marisa Woytek

Even if I could, I'm never re-enlisting. Being sexually harassed online ruined the Marine Corps for me, and the experience.feedback

James Mattis - US Marine Corps

In the coming days I will make a recommendation to President Trump for a leader who can guide our Navy and Marine Corps team as we execute the president's vision to rebuild our military.feedback

Mario Puglia

I would like to invite the Marines, and we will raise a big American flag. Because Trump aside, we feel a sense of gratitude toward the Americans. They liberated us at the end of the Second World War, and many American soldiers died around here.feedback

John McCain

It was an unnecessary and frankly harmful open dispute over an issue which is not nearly as important as United States-Australian cooperation and working together, including training of our marines in Australia and other areas of military cooperation and intelligence.feedback

Nick Baucom

The biggest thing that separates me from my competition is who we hire. They're Marines, they're Army, they're Navy, they're Air Force.feedback

Rune Haarstad

For the first four weeks they will have basic winter training, learn how to cope with skis and to survive in the Arctic environment. It has nothing to do with Russia or the current situation.feedback

Eric Blehm

Every one of them said, when they were this mass casualty situation – either wounded [or] tending to the wounds of their buddies – every one of them were thinking, Where in the hell are the Marines?feedback

Jerry Ensminger

This is good news. This has been a hard, long slog. This is not the end of the issue.feedback

Roger Turner

We're viewing this as a high-risk mission...We're not in any way viewing this as a noncombat mission, or something to take lightly.feedback

Wayne Root

We're building up for this, just like the Marines. We are going to really train harder and try to increase our operational capabilities in the event that this is the day that we hoped would never come.feedback

Eriksen Soereide

The United States are our most important ally and we have a near bilateral relationship that we wish to develop. The defense of Norway is dependent on allied reinforcement and it is crucial for Norwegian security that our allies get the knowledge required to operate in Norway, together with Norwegian forces.feedback

Zachary Younts

I hate sitting in a bay working on an engine all day. I love this. This is awesome. It gives me a sense of doing something in my career.feedback

Matthew Estes

Before I left, I was nervous, anxious and overwhelmed with excitement. I'm doing the job that I want to do - that I joined to do.feedback

Shawn Durrell

It's one of the biggest experiences of my life. Not only are we going to a different country, we're seeing what we can do. And we're here to help. One of the biggest things in life is to help.feedback

Matthew Estes

My wife was a little upset, but she understands the pick-up-and-go. She cried a little on the phone but then texted me and said this is what you joined to do, what you love to do.feedback

Tim Kaine

We have a son deployed overseas in the Marine Corps right now. We trust Hillary Clinton as president and commander-in-chief, but the thought of Donald Trump as commander-in-chief scares us to death.feedback

Debbie Dingell

This weekend's visit was an opportunity to see firsthand the changes that are being implemented to achieve this goal. After meeting with General Renforth and talking with other key members of leadership, drill instructors, and recruits, it is clear that the Marine Corps is treating this issue with the seriousness it deserves.feedback

Robert B. Neller

Our history is important to us, and we have a responsibility to ensure it's right. Although the Rosenthal image is iconic and significant, to Marines it's not about the individuals and never has been. Simply stated, our fighting spirit is captured in that frame, and it remains a symbol of the tremendous accomplishments of our Corps -- what they did together and what they represent remains most important. That doesn't change.feedback

John Kirby

The justices ruled 6 to 2 that Congress had not violated the separation of powers when it passed a bill making it easier for about 1,300 people to collect money on behalf of those killed or injured in the 1983 bombing of a U.S. Marine Corps barracks in Beirut and other attacks blamed on Iran.feedback

Scott Carr - coast guard

Our focus is to locate these Marines and know with absolute certainty we've thoroughly canvassed every location we might find them.feedback

James D. Jenkins - coast guard

We are dedicated to locate and bring back these servicemembers, and we'll continue our efforts throughout today with all our search assets.feedback

Ryan Engle - US Marine Corps

There was limited resistance, no real resistance, much less than expected. We did find several IEDs and bombs and things like that.feedback

Hillary Clinton

I want to express my total dismay at the story concerning our marines, who I have the highest respect and admiration for, but I share completely the views expressed by Defence Secretary Leon Panetta earlier today. I join him in condemning the deplorable behaviour that is reflected in this video.feedback

Hillary Clinton

I want to express my total dismay at the story concerning our marines. Anyone found to have participated or known about or having engaged in such conduct must be held fully accountable.feedback
