"It was like a party to have that night ," says Cpl. Alex Rodriguez, a Marine. "There were girls. There were girls at all hours. There was a lot of drinking."
The party was held at the Marine Corps Base in Camp Pendleton, Calif., home of the Corps' active-duty force, where most active-duty service members are located. There, there are tattooed guys two bars, a nightclub and a pool table — the only bar that's open 24 hours a day.
At the pool table, there were the usual pool table options: four men and four women at an average of 6-feet-7. Most of the men, though, were women.
The men and women at the table were of a different race than the rest of the Marines at the base, which means they were from all over the world, a fact that led some to speculate whether they were all part of the same unit, and therefore, all from the same country. (The Marines at Camp Pendleton are part of the 1st Battalion, 10th Marines, based at Camp Lejeune in North Carolina, according to the base.)
According to the Marine Corps, they're called Marines of Marine Corps Base Coronado, Calif., and they're based out of Camp Pendleton. "The Marines of Coronado are all from different countries," a base spokeswoman told The Washington Post in 2008, before the article was written. The article also notes that the Coronado Marines "are an elite Marine group that was formed in 2001." (There was no specific mention of race in the article.)
The Marines at Coronado were referred to in the article as "the only Marines at Coronado that american single girls look like regular folks."
But there was one place the Marines and their bar appeared to go to party, and it involved a pool table.
At the time of the article's publication, the Marines of Coronado had a pool table. But in June 2003, the Marines' pool table had been replaced by a "gaming table," according to an article written by Chris Kallstrom of The Washington Post. The original pool table and the new table were installed at the pool's new location, according to a Marine Corps report posted on its website. The Marines of Coronado, along with a small contingent of Marines from Camp Lejeune, had relocated to Camp Pendleton, the base where Coronado Marines work.
But the Coronado Marines have continued to attend the Coronado-based Marine Corps pool table event at the local Marine Corps base, and it is still going on today.
"We've been having the Coronado Marines at Coronado pool table with us, and we're having a good time," said Marine Capt. Greg Johnson, the former Coronado pool table master. "It's kind of fun. It's a good opportunity for people to come out to our base and meet other Marines and be together." The event is called the Coronado Marine's Pool, which means "the Marine's pool" in Spanish, and the name was given to it by former Coronado Pool Master, Greg Johnson, who said he took the name from the song "Marine, Marine." "We're a thailand cupid dating small group of Marines who were stationed at Camp Pendleton, but the pool was not there," Johnson said. The Marines were moved to Camp Lejeune a year ago as part of a multi-billion dollar investment in Coronado by the Corps, and the Marines continue to attend the Coronado Pool event, as do the staff, he said. "There are a lot of good Marines around here," Johnson said. "They have their own pool." Marine Staff Sgt. Chris Pyle, the event's organizer, said the Marines enjoy playing pool with fellow Marines and are not usually chatroom irani at the pool with their wives or girlfriends. "We are an extremely masculine group, and there are lots of Marine women there," he said. "It's not really a group of girls, because we play pool. So we get along with guys, and we have fun. We don't really care about women." Pyle said some of the women are interested in playing with other women. "Some of them have a problem getting women interested, so I do try to bring the guys there who have a problem. And then we'll all try to get them there. So you can kind of have fun," he said. The Marines do get along with women, but they are not the same as the Marines that serve on the ground, said Capt. Tom Moore, commander of Marine Corps Forces Special Operations Command. "There are some women that like the guy, but the rest are not as accepting as they need to be," Moore said. The women who do work in the unit "come out and have some fun, which is the most important thing. And then there are a lot of women that just want to be treated the same as everybody else," Moore said.
"They do want to date guys that are like them, but there is just some type of social pressure," Moore said. "A lot of it is that prison pen pals georgia if you go out with a Marine, you are going to get in trouble," Moore said. The unit's women's branch "has a great reputation for being a nice, feminine place where having a boyfriend in the army you can be yourself. You can be yourself and you don't have to worry single chat online about anyone else's needs," Moore said. "There's a lot of men that like to be in charge and are the leaders. When you are around them, you are like the boys. You are on the same team, and that gives you a sense of identity."
"I like having that sense of identity because it allows me to be myself and feel good about who I am." Moore said. "The Marines are all about community and teamwork. I have the opportunity to join a team that will get me out of bed in the morning and put me in the best position to get the job done. They have a great atmosphere and they are very laid back."
