Just sent to me by a former Marine .. it is, what it is.. ! Chief

Some new 6,000 Lb. 'rough terrain forklifts' were delivered to the Equipment Allowance Pool (29 Palms Marine Base... ca 1980), Pettibone brand. These happened to come with a civilian tech rep and he went over the machine with the Marines, and a Gunny commented to him that if Pettibone had made something that was PFC proof, he had a pretty good machine there.

The tech rep said that when it came to equipment, Marines were comparatively easy. "Seabees, however, are a different story... you can sell them an anvil, and if they can't break it, they'll stand around it and piss on it until it rusts away".
