    It was joke, based on yours regarding Marines not knowing both their parents. Besides, it is your aunt and uncle he was talking about (joke)

    Infantry blue cord - Wikipedia
    The little box on the Wiki pages says both officers and enlisted can earn the cord.

    How exactly does the green beret not mean anything anymore.
    President Franklin Roosevelt eulogized a fallen American Soldier by saying, “He stands in the unbroken line of patriots who have dared to die [that] freedom might live, and grow, and increase its blessings. Freedom lives, and through it he lives--in a way that humbles the undertakings of most men."

    Oh my God. It was a joke towards you because you insulted the Marines.

    If your skin is this thin you probably shouldn't start the **** talking.

    It was a personal attack. Those kinds of "jokes" don't fly.
