Unwinding in Iraq

After a long day of negotiating construction contracts with Iraqi business owners, interacting with the local community, calling in air strikes on a building that has fired upon your fellow marines’ position, and cleaning your weapons for the gozillionth time, all the while wearing nearly a hundred pounds of body armor, how does a marine unwind? Why, hitting golf balls across the border into Syria of course. Does anyone know how to say FORE! in Arabic?

Thanks to my Marine for providing this pic of the “WELCOME TO SYRIA” sign he took while performing said tasks... with a 3 Wood I believe.
