Well, I never even saw a persons body left behind even when they were in pieces. Please tell me you weren't a Marine.


A bunch on unrelated guys on a combat mission in full gung ho mode is totally different to a loving father having to leave his ailing mother in order to get his children (and her grand children) to safety. Semper fidelis just means more lost lives in civvy street and achieves nothing cept more casualties . Leaving no one behind in many cases means no one survives, If people have that attitude survivalism is not for them. Are you willing to let your children cling to you as you and they die, because you want to hold your mother/ father/ brother/ sister/ cousin/ neighbours hand as they wait to be overcome?

Look at it this way, Most of us have families, Mum, Dad, Grandad and Granny, Bro and sis, plus your beautiful adored children.

You have to bug out cos a tsunami or pyroclastic flow, or fire, or flood or whatever is going to wipe out your home town.

As you travel along the route to safety, one of the adults in your party gets hurt or injured, and can no longer travel, Its clear you cant move them, its clear they will die when the storm/ fire/ flood etc gets here. But you have the crazy notion of All For One, Leave No man behind.

So you will sit with the injured party and die along within to preserve your humanity and semper fi mentality, and your infant children will cluster around you awaiting death with you because you want to stay with granny or who ever till then end. So because of your " humanity" not only does granny die, but so does the rest of your family. Thats not survivalism, nor humanity that just plain stupid. Least you wont die alone though !
