Salty Submarine Quote of the Month


Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to crew of USS Kentucky (SSBN-737) at Naval Base Kitsap, Bangor, Wash. on August 9, 2017. Edited news story here.

Note:  Molten Eagle applauds Gen. Maddog Mattis's use of plainspoken, un-politically correct language and combat appropriate attitude.

The Quote

"That means you're not some pussy sitting on the sidelines [color emphasis by M.E.], you know what I mean, kind of sitting there saying, “Well, I should have done something with my life.” Because of what you're doing now, you're not going to be laying on a shrink's couch when you're 45 years old, say “What the hell did I do with my life?”  Why? Because you served others; you served something bigger than you." - August 9, 2017, Unedited News Transcript, "Remarks by [U.S.] Secretary [of Defense Gen. James 'Maddog'] Mattis, USMC at a Troop Event in Naval Base Kitsap, Washington"

Submarines are always silent and strange.
