User Topic: A question for a US Marine

My DD is getting married to a US Marine this Saturday. I will provide the toast. Would it not be proper if at the end of the toast I said "HooRah"? Can only a Marine say it?
Thanks!!

How about 'Semper Fi' instead??

Kind of has that SI-appropriate theme to it too, KWIM???

If you are going to say it, it's pronounced "Ooo-rah", with no "H" sound at the beginning.

A cultural caveat is: Do not Ooh-Rah anybody if you are not a Marine....Exceptions: 1) Navy Medical Personnel who have served with the Marines as Marines (i.e., wore Marine Green vs Navy Blue uniforms). 2) Navy and Marine Pilots (most from both groups go through officer candidate training with Marine Drill Instructors). 3) Any fellow service member, when used to acknowledge the superb achievement of a Marine.

This is what I found online.


I'm sorry if you don't like my Honesty, but to be fair I don't like your lies.

Sometimes it's better to push someone away...not because you stopped loving them but because you can't take the pain anymore.

Marine Corps vet here.

I agree with TR. I would use "Semper Fi" which means Always Faithful

Otherwise its said Oo-rah

ETA: TBH, having a civilian or anyone other than another marine say Oo-rah can be "annoying" sometimes. Either way, I'm sure the other Marines will appreciate the gesture. Just be prepared to have it shouted back at you. LOUDLY

Thanks peeps!

Sport,

They respond better to shouting "All Hands On Deck" very loudly.

Congrats on your DD getting married!

Thanks Moo! He's a great kid. Typical Marine in that he's mature, focused and fun.

They'll be moving to SoCal within a week after the wedding ... we'll miss DD desperately.

You could warn him that Marine or not if he doesn‘t treat your princess like she was his queen he’ll be shouting “Oo-rah” in a soprano voice…

Congratulations on your daughter!

Haha, Bigger! He's really great with her so I suspect his voice will remain as it is.

Absolutely.

It's really about the spirit of the occasion so don't think too much into this. The camaraderie and being together with their fellow marines is whats most important....that and alcohol (jk, sort of)

Can I suggest a small wedding gift, for your dd. A book called Chicken Soup for the Military Wives Soul. Its a good read, where she will get a laugh, learn some things about being a Marine wife and figuring out she is not alone in it. Congratulations to all of you
