There was never a separate name for women Marines (such as WAC or WAVE).
They were always simply Marines.
They were, however, colloquially known as.........
Well... maybe we needn't get into that, eh Jim laugh

Thanks again Mic!thumbs up
So these two Marines are walking down the street and see a bloodied Marine in the street outside a bar.
They ask him if he'd been hit by a truck.

"No," he says, 'There's a Coastie in there. Beat hell outta me threw me out."

The two go in to settle the score.
Minutes later they're in the street - same condition as the first.

A Sergeant and a Marine squad comes by...hears the story.
The sarge sends in the whole squad.

Windows are smashing! Lights flashing! Earth SHAKING!

A Marine crawls out and yells...
"Call 'Em Back, Sarge! It's A Trap! There's TWO Of 'Em!!!"

grin

A Coastie, a Sailor & a Marine are stranded on a desert island.
They find a magic lamp; a genie offers them three wishes.

The Coastie takes the lamp, wishes he was home...and disappears.
The Sailor does the same...and disappears.

The Marine figures he has only one wish, so he decides to think 'bout his options.
Days pass.
The Marine mutters to himself, "Sure is lonely. I wish the Coastie and the Sailor were here."
boxing boxing

If Jim shares those stories with buddies from the Corps they won't be told exactly the same way, I betcha.
