Other than “courageous,” you mean?

I don’t understand what you’re asking. Something like ‘once a marine, always a marine’ came to mind but that’s too long.

Hot.
Sorry, that’s all that comes to mind off the top of my head.

Maybe you’re looking for

airman
marine
soldier
crewman

That sort of thing?

I have no idea if those terms are equivalent or even correct, but wondering if it’s more the sort of thing you’re looking for.

Air force: elite, smart, testosterone junkies
Army: default service, education benefits
Navy: Swabbies and officers don’t mingle
Marines: think they are so hot
Coast Guard: forgotten service no violence

Assholes.

Not all, but more than enough to get a bad rep for it. Arrogant and… yeah, maybe I’ve had too much personal experience.

@wundayatta Has the idea. I’m looking for your PERSONAL impressions on how service members differ.
