In MOS school we had a Sergeant Shoup, no relation, but try saying that 5 five times fast. I can't count how many times I accidentally called him Sergeant Soup. It was outright embarrassing.

I don't think I've ever seen that quote credited to any specific Marine. I know it was said often in the Corps though.

In prison we had a guy named Ruben who had a very bad heart condition. One night walking back to his cell from the showers he keeled over with a heart attack. His cellies knew he always kept the nitroglycerine close by so the looked in his locker and bunk. Two of us in the wing were former EMTs. Me and a guy named Palmer. We started CPR on the guy while someone went and guy the guard. We brought him back twice before he went for good. No one could find his glycerine pills though.

Not until the morning when one of his cellies was cleaning the cell and pushed the pill bottle out from under a bunk with a dust mop. The guy probably had the pill bottle in his hand when he keeled over and they rolled under there.

Anyway he died on a thursday night. Friday for lunch, we had Rueben Sandwiches which was not cool. Not cool at all.
