Marines Aren't Soldiers

This photo is posted at Ace, with the caption: "An American Soldier summarized in one picture." One problem: They are Marines. Solider refers to Army personnel. Not to be nitpick-y, but I married a Marine. There is a difference.

From the embedded reporter, Goran Tomasevic:
