The Leatherneck Story

Posted on: January 19, 2006 | Views: 39 | Comment

Since the days of the Barbary pirates, US Marines have called themselves "leathernecks." Legend has it that the term was derived from leather neckbands worn in the late 1700s to protect Marines from the slash of the cutlass. A more likely reason is that the high stocks were worn for discipline to keep the Marines' heads high and straight. Whatever the reason, the name leatherneck stuck and the distinctive dress blue uniform blouse still bears a high stock collar to remind Marines of the leatherneck legacy. Since 1917, "Leatherneck" has been the official magazine of the Marines.
