How would that effect the use of "marines" today. Marines are much more likely to arrive in a combat area by way of transport aircraft, ships being the secondary method of arrival.
I know. It was merely a response to the claim that ground troops and navies have to have separate rank names because of the etymology.

As for Colonel West, he is only one guy who appears on deleted scenes, so I'd not base any far reaching conclusions on him.
