Subject: Real Life Humor: Best Name for Bulldog
oregon_x_marine    8/17/2003 12:23:48 AM
I hope some of you will find a little humor here. My sister, a former Marine SSGT who served with 10th Marines circa 1985 and with a Marine reserve A-6 squadron at Whibey Island NAS in the late 80's, is "adopting" a bulldog. The question is: what is the best name for a bulldog (remember, there are five former Marines in this family)? 1. Marina Cora 2. Semper Fido 3. make a suggestion.

Now everyone knows that the best name for a bulldog is "Chesty". Since hubby is former winger maybe "Pappy" for Pappy Boyington For a female dog might I suggest Lucy - for Lucy Brewer or since your sister served in 10th Marines Molly for Molly Pitcher

Ask your sister and see how much WM knowledge she has. Lucy Brewer went under the name George Baker. Was present during the USS Constitution vs HMS Guerriere. Where the Constitution earned the name "Old Ironsides" From the historical division at HQMC: "A farm girl from Massachusetts, Lucy Brewer was the legendary first woman Marine. The War of 1812 was raging when Lucy arrived at Boston. Friendless in the strange city, she met a woman who seemed eager to take a stranger into her home. Lucy was surprised that one woman could have so many daughters, but she soon discovered that home was just a house. Unsuited to a life of sin, Lucy fled her benefactress, donned men's clothing, and found refuge in the Marine Corps. No one discovered she was a woman, and as a member of the "Constitution's" Marine guard, she saw action in some of the bloodiest sea fights of the war. Her exploits came to light when she published an autobiographical account of her experiences. She described her heroism in the major battles of the "Constitution" with such details as manning the fighting tops as a marksman, taking toll of the British with musket fire. " It would be over one hundred years before the Marine Corps seriously began to recruit women - August 1918 - to be specific. There is a street aboard Camp Lejeune named after her.

Great Names!! Marion Snarl is especially appropriate because he is a native Oregonian and was, sadly, murdered in a small community located just outside of my hometown of Roseburg, Oregon.
