Don't blow up a Marine . . .

When he came to, he was standing on his feet holding his weapon, turning to see the remnants of the blast and wondering why his squad had a look on their faces as if they’d seen a ghost.

Garst’s squad stared at him in disbelief. The square-jawed Marine has a tendency to be short-tempered, and the realization that the blast was meant to kill him spiked his adrenaline and anger.

“What the f--- are you looking at?” he said. “Get on the cordon!”

Marines: blow them up and it just irritates them.
