Lest you think we forgot. Marines have a special place in the Gormogons’ hearts for all they do and all they have done.
The Czar would like to bring up a battle even very few Marines remember: the Battle for Hills 111 and 119, which were the last ground actions of the Korean War, in July, 1953. First in, last out.
Bear in mind that the United Nations decided that the last battle of the war needed to be won by the United Nations, not China. So the USMC was sent in to Hills 111 and 119 for no real tactical or strategic importance except to embarrass Chinayet they performed their best under very difficult circumstances as though it was the most critical fight of all.
And even though the USAF gets the credit for the last kill of the war, the last real battle was won by the USMC in a fight few remember.
