Forgot to post last night again. Oops!

Starfleet Marines haven't been seen much in the shows (or at all? Though I think the MACOs of Star Trek: Enterprise qualify). But I like to imagine they havne't changed much. The motto "Retreat, Hell!" comes from the American 2nd Battalion of the 5th Marines ("Two Five") in World War I. Upon their arrival in the French trenches, a French officer advised a retreat, to which Lloyd responded: "Retreat? Hell, we just got here!"

Panel 1

Panel 2:
Colonel Hank Reynolds: We have an opening!
    Everyone move out! I'll hold them off!
Marine Sergeant: Negative, sir!

Panel 3:
Hank: I said go, marine!
Marine Sergeant: I'm sorry, sir, but that's our job!
    And this mission needs you alive.
Hank: I don't leave people behind, Sergeant!
Marine Sergeant: We're right behind you, Colonel!
    This is our job!!

Panel 4:
Marines Sergeant Marines, what do we say?!
Marines: Retreat, Hell! Hoorah!
