    Out of curiosity, why does the image have an infantry emblem within the chevrons and the lower a fusiliers?

    I'm a Master Gunnery Sergeant, The image is a bursting bomb. Every Marine is a trained rifleman. Most ranks will have cross rifles in the chevron representing that. Certain ranks have different emblems.

    Like I said... fusiliers! ;) I see; I had assumed, like the navy, that represented an OSQ.

    It's possible, but not likely. There's a few of us over there spread out pretty good. I was the Operations Chief at Combat Assault Battalion

    Crap, I didn't get them anything! Would a re gifted bread machine be a bit of a faux pas?

    But seriously, thanks to everyone who serves.
