A little bill introduced by Walter ‘Freedom Fries’ Jones has the most co-sponsors of any bill introduced since 1973. Before that, we don’t have records. All this bill does is change the name of the Department of the Navy to the ‘Department of the Navy and Marine Corps.’ The purpose is simply to honor the sacrifice and role of the Marine Corps in providing for the national defense. However, John McCain is objecting to this change. Interestingly so is former Marine, Sen. Jim Webb (who also served as Secretary of the Navy). I don’t understand the objection. I would think the image of the Navy would be enhanced by greater awareness that the Marines are part of the Navy.
