Here’s the lesson of the day: If you want to end up featured on Bored Marine Video, location is key.
Sure, a good video can be recorded anywhere. Marines get extra points, though, when they record it somewhere austere — say, Marjah, the former Taliban stronghold where Marines still regularly tangle with insurgents.
With that, we give you a rubber-legged infantry grunt performing Michael Jackson’s “Beat It.” I bet that’s the first time the song has ever been performed in a dirty FROG suit.
Any help that can be provided in identifying this dancing star gets extra points. The likelihood is that he was deployed either with 1st Battalion, 6th Marines, or 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines, since the two units have returned to Camp Lejeune, N.C., from deployments in Marjah within the last few months.
