General Charles Krulak said on the official site: "Having spent 39 years in uniform myself, I understand the sacrifice each member of the forces makes for the United Kingdom and I salute that sacrifice."
"I am proud of you and proud of what you do each day for your country. Two years ago, I became a director of Aston Villa and have now experienced the same sort of comradeship that I found in the Marine Corps. Because of a desire to share that comradeship, we are beginning the British Forces Lions Club and invite you to join us."
Adding, "I promise that there will be no 'deployments' to foreign lands...unless it is to Europe. Please join me in becoming a member of Martin O'Neill's Claret and Blue Army."
