On the cover of “The Three Amigos” was a black ops cold war image of American troops in the Korean-china war, as the publication of the book described it. This image was of a squad of US Marines in the mountains of Korea, as the magazine called them. On the cover, the caption read “The Cold War is over.
I can’t say I have a lot of admiration for the magazine’s description, but at least the cover image is a bit closer to the reality. The description above made me think of the famous quote from the US Army about the Cold War, and it doesn’t appear to match the image on the cover.
the cover image was taken from a photo of the Marine Corps’s 1st Ranger Battalion, not the 1st Platoon of the 20th Marines, as the magazine describes.
The cover image is the only thing that looks slightly out of place. The 1st Ranger Battalion has been in the news a bit lately, as the 20th Marines are currently fighting in Iraq. The 20th Marines are a small branch of the Marines, and they are the branch of the Marine Corps that specializes in the “hard” or “no-blitz” aspects of the Army’s famous “live fire” or “cold” war.
The 1st Ranger Battalion is one of the two platoons of the 20th Marines. One of the other platoons of the 20th Marines is the 2nd Ranger Battalion. The 2nd Ranger Battalion is one of the two platoons of the 2nd Marine Division, the other being the 3rd Ranger Battalion.
The 3rd Ranger Battalion is the only battalion that does not train in any of the other three branches of the Marine Corps. Instead, they are trained in the tactical and intelligence aspects of the Marine Corps. The 3rd Ranger Battalion is also known as the “Sapper and Sniper” Battalion.
The 2nd Ranger Battalion is basically an elite unit of the 2nd Marine Division, which is a part of the 2nd Marine Division. The 2nd Ranger Battalion is so highly skilled in everything they do that they are considered an elite unit. This fact is usually not enough for them to get assigned to a platoons in the regular Marine Corps, so they are sent to do just that.
These Rangers are, as most of you probably know, also a part of the Navy, which is a part of the US Navy. The Rangers are a military unit of the US Navy, and thus, like most members of the Navy, they are given a special assignment. The 2nd Ranger Battalion is one of these Rangers, being assigned to the Rangers.
The Rangers are military marines, and they are a part of the US military. They are also part of the US Navy, and are often called the Rangers because of their role in the special operations forces. But unlike regular Marines and Navy troops, the Rangers are not part of either the Army or the Air Force. The Rangers do not have a headquarters, which means that they work in pairs.
The 2nd Ranger Battalion was created in 1941 by one of the many branches of the US government, and they are the only military unit, other than the FBI, that has ever been assigned to the Special Operations Executive. The 2nd Ranger Battalion is also the only unit in the US armed forces that is actually required to wear a helmet and gear up to the standards of the Rangers.
