It cannot be inherited nor can it ever be purchased.
You nor anyone alive can buy it for any price.
It is impossible to rent and it cannot be lent.

You own it forever.

For the Record;
There are no X-Marines or Former Marines.
Once a recruit graduates from training at Parris Island, SC or San Diego, CA
or the hills of Quantico, VA., they are then and will always be,
A United States Marine.
Once a Marine, Always a Marine.
To Marines, Semper Fidelis
is more than a motto.
It's a way of life.
Honor - Courage - Commitment
Civilians Cannot and will not understand us,
because they are not one of us.
The Corps - We love it, live it and are willing to die for it.
If you have never been in it, you will never understand it.
