Anyone who is in any branch of the military knows that there is some fierce competition between all of the branches. While all branches work together to protect the country and fight for it overseas, they still have a friendly rivalry going on.
The Marines are often viewed as the toughest of the military branches. They have the most rigorous entry standards and the toughest basic training regimen. As a result, they really aren’t picked on or teased by any other branch. However, they are in the position of being able to goad any other branch of the military. Getting into the Marines requires an impressive display of both physical strength and mental prowess.
There is a definite rivalry between the Army and the other two branches, the Air Force and Navy. Many view the Army as secondary to the Marines. However, it tends to require more physical strength than the other two branches and they are very often sent on dangerous missions. As a result, they have a joking rivalry with the Air Force and Navy.
The Air Force and Navy both have advantages over the Army that they use to tease the Army. These two branches are the most technologically advanced of all the military branches. This is due to the majority of their operations being in the air and in the water, respectively. The increase in technology means that the Air Force and Navy tend to have stricter intelligence requirements for their various jobs. They also claim to have the most fun jobs since they involve so much technology.
It’s obvious that the rivalry between military branches is a good-natured way for service members to poke fun at the people serving alongside them. Every branch does a great job defending America and they all deserve to be honored for the job they do.
