This cheeky, vintage marines tee features a graphic of a skull wearing a camo hat and the phrase, "Marines never die, they just go to hell to regroup." The Marines Corps are officially a part of the US Department of the Navy, although they're separate from the Navy and have their own procedures and training. The Marines are uniquely trained to handle amphibious operations, meaning by both land and water. They are also known for having the hardest recruit training of any military branch and for being the first to be called into combat when the country is at war. The Marines are a fraction of the size of the other main branches of the military and, because of this, are known for having a strong sense of pride and camaraderie with each other.
The Marine Corps, like all branches of the U.S. Military, have tons of traditions. Once a year, the US Marines travel to Thailand to participate in Cobra Gold, a multi-national military exercise event. The first Cobra Gold was held in the early 80s and it focused on exercises that would be helpful in Indo-Pacific conflict. The exercises allegedly end with participating Marines partaking in a ritual for Thai warriors that involves decapitating a cobra and drinking its blood.
