The Prez is taking some heat about how to say "Corpsman"

Reading from his teleprompter, he said "corpse-man" three times!



I haven't noticed, but has he refered to the Marine Corps as the "Marine Corpse"? I'm sure the general public will forgive his mis-speak but Marines and Sailors across the nation must have groaned when they heard him.

From what I understand, besides Marines, there are Navy Corpsman stationed in the White House. One might think he has heard the word before.

Under Obama's pronunciation, here are a few possible examples:

US Army "Corpse" of Engineers
Peace "Corpse"
US Marine "Corpse"
"Corpse" of Royal Marines
Headquarters Allied Rapid Reaction "Corpse"

The one he most likely is familiar with, possibly even from Ill, is Press Corps(e).
