The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

I've been curious if we, as a seperate division of the armed forces, have our own battle cry? I think it'd be lame to merely copy and paste from the traditional marine battle cry. If we have none, keeping with the established pattern set by the Army, and Air Force "Hooah!", the Navy, "Hooyah!" or the Marines, "oorah!" what should ours be? :delta:

Naah, that was just Hudson cry-ING :cry: . Seriously, do we have a battle cry of our own? One we can boast from the gut with self respect? :delta:

If you're referring to the lines "Every meal's a banquet. Every paycheck a fortune. Every formation a parade." That's more of a slogan or motto like the Army's "Be all that you can be." The Marine's The few, the proud." The Air Force's "Aim high." or the Navy's "Honor, Courage, Commitment." I'm asking what our battle cry is? Following the set pattern, it'd only consist of one single word, if even a word. :delta:

Surely it'd be something involving the word "Beer"?

88reaper88, I read your comment, as well as watched that scene repeatedly. Apone did growl in it, but it's hard to determine that as an official war cry, or simply his own sigh/ growl. I guess it could work, but I read somewhere that one possible source for the Marine's oorah could've been the sound of a submarine claxton. If that's true, I wonder if, likewise, it might make more sense to refer to the sound of any of our own alarm type equipment for our own war cry? Just a thought. :delta:

Picturing that minion with the light on his head with a megaphone yelling "bee-d'oh bee-d'oh"...

There ya go Will... you new battle cry.... BEE-D'OH!

And yes, I am still joking (for those lacking a sense of humor.)

No worries. Good to have a sense of humour.

Which would be more terrifying - An enemy advancing with battle cries, an enemy advancing while (stage) whispering in unison like some kind of chant, or one that does so in complete silence.......

Interesting choice of war dance, but yes, agreed, that'd be awesome!

It's "Oorah!"

For many years during the parade we've been doing this call-and-response:

"When I say number one!"

- "When I say number!"

"We all say Marine Corps!"

- "We all say Marine Corps!"

"Number One!"

- "Marine Corps!"

"Number One!"

- "Marine Corps!"

OORAH!

I have a friend who was born in New Zealand, and spent his childhood there until his parents moved here. The same friend, btw, that helped me acquire my pulse rifle. We were at a club when he met, what he referred to as an "Aussie". A guy visiting from Australia. Outside, after the club, while everyone was drunk, the Australian guy challenged him to haka. That's the first time I had ever seen, let alone, heard of it up to that point. :delta:
