USO Canteen FReeper FRiday.......June 21,2002
FRiends of the USO Canteen FReeper Style and Snow Bunny

Posted on 06/21/2002 1:00:48 AM PDT by Snow Bunny

We are honored to introduce to you
G'nad

...."My mom always said she wasn't surprised I wanted to be a Marine...I still love scars and bruises...I acquired quite a collection over the years...

Newly commissioned, boot 2ndLt g'nad......

1stLt and Mrs. g'nad headed for the Marine Corps Birthday Ball. She's my best friend...my reality check...God has blessed me with her.



Above and Below...Desert Storm, cleaned up afterwards ... somewhere in Kuwait.......

Reunion with Mrs. g'nad, this photo ran in the OkiMar Edition of Stars and Stripes.......



On the range at 29 Palms with a buddy, our custom rifles, and M-14s...Life is good!.......

Winter warfare training with some of my Marines at the Mountain Warfare Training Center, Bridgeport, CA. I'm the one standing far left. This was with 2d Marine Regiment... my best time, and my best Marines.......


The family as of Nov '01. Rebecca, Mrs. g'nad, Jake and me on the beach at Emerald Isle, NC.

I knew I wanted to be a Marine since I was three-years-old. I signed my Delayed Entry Program papers in Oct of my senior year, but in December the Officer Selection Officer (OSO) asked me if I wanted to try for an NROTC Scholarship. I never had any intention of being an officer, and my family was too poor for me to even consider college. I was accepted and attended Iowa State University and OCS, and was commissioned. I owe the Marine Corps a great debt.

. Still on active duty as a Major at Headquarters Marine Corps...my first desk job, and it's killin' me...

Been a lot of places, seen a lot of things... some bad, some good. But I have always served with the finest of men, Marines.

I trust in Jesus as my Lord and Savior...I believe in Duty, Honor, Sacrifice, Integrity...

I believe that there is no substitute for hard work... that pain is a good thing...if no one's shooting at you, there is nothing to stress about...oh yes, and beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy...

Die first, then quit.......

G'nad

Thank you G’nad for serving our country and for sharing with us here at the FReeper USO Canteen. It is an honor and blessing to know you.

Thank you g'nad - from the bottom of my heart.

I don't know. It didn't have that recipe. Just take a couple potatoes, boil them or nuke them, and mash them with some butter, salt and pepper. Try that and tell me how it tastes in the Skwerl Cake. OK?

Sorry about your Priscilla B, I MISS my Barney, ex-wife got him, only because my apartment would not have been fair to a big dog like that and he had plenty of room to run where she lives.

God I loved that dog...

Not really him, I have no pictures of him, but he really looked like this......:(

What if we take Tom's skunks to the vet and get them de-scented - or whatever you call it to make them not stink? They are kinda cute. I like the fact that they eat scorpions and black widow spiders. Those scare me!

Spookie, what on earth did the bad vet try to tell you was wrong with your rabbit? I am so glad you have her with a good vet now. That is evil to treat pet owners that way. You ought to report that vet to the BBB or local news investigation team and expose him! Grrrrrrrr!
