Avant Propos

 

 

"You maggots best come to rapidly understand that my beloved Marine Corps ain’t no place for being goddamn emotional! Charlie sure as fuck won’t be emotional when he is smashing your nuts with a rock! So, stop your pussy snivelling and wipe away those goddamn baby tears, for you aint quite dying yet!

Now! Lift your goddamn loads like the Marines you wanna become, and let’s run the whole fucking twenty five klicks again, for doing it once just aint enough!"

 

Our Drill instructor, "Gunny Capes”, introduction to battle fitness,

The duo of books, Southlands Snuffys, relate to a relatively short period taken from one persons peripatetic history.

The use of the French Language for titling each paragraph is a tribute for long departed good friends.
