Me too..and Squirt ain't coming back it would appear. Wanna go and sneak a smoke in the MCRD dumpster? The DI's are singing in their quonset hut, so we might just pull it off.....

Okay, here I am. Where's squirt? He requests us to check in and then he checks out. I have a cold beer and a hot lady waiting so I will request permission to leave.

(I hate hijacking threads, but Squirt must have hit and run....) Corpsmen are of course most welcome; once you don the green, having shed those side-zippered white bell bottoms, you become a brother.

Personal note - really looking forward to Memorial Day ceremony at the Coachella Cemetery. I'm hopeful that Mitchell Paige ( age 84...CMH from Guadalcanal) will be there. He's a local resident and happily still in decent health.

Thanks; I served with Marines three times. Each time I went Marine Corps Regs. When I retired in '96 I wrote HQMC to ask if I could still wear them at appropriate times. They couldn't find any precedent for the request, and said it'd be just fine.

I've never looked back on my naval career with any particular fondness, EXCEPT for the years I was with Marines ... I love you guys. You took care of me.

Navy FMF Corpsmen are Marines.

It takes them a little bit, though.

Here's to a safe week-end and good luck getting signatures! It should be in the 80 degree range and sunny this week-end here in the South Bay.

To All you jarheads and swabbies, Salute!

" It takes them a little bit, though "

More than a little bit ... I could shoot straight and hump forever, but could never quite hit 225 on the PFT while FMF. I finally got serious about training at my last Navy command, prepping for a short-course triathlon. Funny; I didn't hit my prime until 40. I'm still the same weight I was at retirement 7 years ago ... unfortunately, 10 pounds of upper body mass moved downhill to my butt.

1stSgt reporting in. Ready for whatever you've got. (Don't let the stripes fool you. I can still hang with the 18 year olds.)

Great Site. I served with a few of these Marines and has the sad duty of reporting the death of two of them to their parents.

I am proud to serve such a fine organization and to be able to claim the title.

In my day , there was no email. (methinks that was a good thing) :-)

Good job! He who controls the servers, rules the world ;-)

I was a Data Systems Tech, worked out of a trailer in exotic locales. (yeah, right!)

You going for 20 years or the longer haul?

Cadence calling is something that just gets sort of ingrained....I just don't understand why the wife or dog don't get it when I break into "song".

I'd think the dog would fall in at least....sigh..
