** Subverted in ''Punisher Born''. The story takes place in a base filled with Marines who are amoral washouts, depicted as either apathetic or cruel, run by incompetent commanding officers. As a Marine Frank Castle was shown to be addicted to combat, willing to indirectly kill a General in order to keep his firebase (and therefore ''his'', war) going. Overall this depiction certainly doesn't sit well with the brave, heroic image the USMC typically has.
