Should Marines Hold Umbrellas?

Should a U.S. Marine hold an umbrella over a President, a visiting dignitary, or any person who's not dressed for wet weather? What about holding a door for the person walking behind them? What about waiting at the red light, while in the car closest to the intersection, for someone with an obvious "mobility impairment" to hobble across the street? What about passing a pitcher of water or a saltshaker down the table? Duh. Marines are still human beings.
