I spent 5 years with the Marines -- as a Navy Corpsman. It is a true statement, 'Once a Marine, always a Marine.'

It's in my blood.

I only regret that I did not go through Marine Corps Boot Camp.

I was a Corpsman, too. My years with the Marines were by far the best of my career. I loved my Marines. I identified with them much more than being a sailor. In fact, I went Marine regs my 2nd and 3rd times with them. When I retired, I didn't keep any of my Navy uniforms, but I proudly held onto my Marine uniforms.

As long as I have my hair short, HQMC says I can continue to wear them to appropriate events ... and I do. Glad the Army changed their slogan; this one makes sense.
