Re: Starfleet is the U.S. Coast Guard

Infantry, including Marines are grunts. It is Vietnam era term from the grunting done to lift their packs to walk. As the army mechanized after Vietnam to take on the Soviets in Europe again grunts lessened in usage, the packs stayed in the APC for the most part.. However it was used in the movie Aliens to describe the Colonial Marines
