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.

"You ought to report that vet to the BBB"

I'm gonna do it. I'm also going to write the Florida Bunny Society, whatever their name is. They are the ones who recommended this doctor.

I'm going to bed. I wish I could have played with you guys tonight. I miss everyone. I played with my kids instead...they was more fun. No offense to all you nice people here. LOL

They eat cat food! I know because some went inside the cat door at my sister's house and ate the cat food. In fact, they did the same thing at my brother's house! Come to think of it, they must think they are cats cause they use the cat door!

The Canteen has a fully stocked bar and all drinks are free. Lodwick is usually bartending, but I'm not sure if he's still here. When he's gone, somebody else pitches in or the bar becomes self service. What is that froo froo drink you have there? Jen

We've had super experiences with house and pet sitters while we're away from the joint.

Thanks! (BTW -- the yard bird was great, but it was quicker than me! LOL!) We've thought about house and pet sitters, but there isn't anyone! I don't even have anyone who can come over and help me wash my hair, and things like that. My mother does the latter things for a living, but she hasn't helped me once in five years! Our friends are all musicians, and aren't likely to be in town the entire time that we're gone. It's a mystery, still, but I absolutely cannot wait to see how it turns out! (It will work out, but I just don't know how. Yet!)

With fibro I ache all the time Bunny, but its much worse than usual tonight. I may have a slight fever, haven't checked. I am treating the sore throat with an oral application of Jack Daniels and Coke, for medicinal purposes.

Corpsman! Is my treatment plan good?

ooooooh Thank you. Whatever it is, it looks refreshing and elegant. To drink something so purty, I ought to put on a dress instead of these shorts and T-shirt.

Oh heck -- I was born to spoil! My Basset babies, my nieces, my fiance, my friends; if you're within post office range, look out! Piper and Wilson have their own beds, with their names embroidered on them, and matching blankies, and their own stuffed animals, and anything else I can think of! Even steak on their birthdays! Not the icky cheap kind of steak, but the same thing we have! We're careful, so they won't be at risk for pancreatitis, but we spoil 'em rotten!!

Good for you! The Bunny Society shouldn't recommend that vet any more.

Glad you played with your kids today. I wish my kids were little again. We sure had fun playing together. Oh well... maybe soon they'll be married and I'll have grandkids to love on. Until then, I have my little nephew when I need a 'baby fix' and my other nephews and niece to play with.

Thanks for not letting me sleep walk last night! (I'd have walked right into a wall; I do that awake already!) (**grin**) You're a love!

What is that?!? It looks like some kind of tropical bird. Anything that is not a Margarita or a drink that has more than 2 ingredients (like Jack and Coke) is a froo froo drink to me. Especially if it's prettied up like that one or has those teeny umbrellas in it. heheheheh

Cozy is not the word for it, bud. I'd have to sit on your lap because there is no way you'd sit 2 side-by-side in the cockpit of a fighter jet. Heeeeeeyyyyyyy! Is that what you're suggesting??? ;-)

Hahahahaha! Could you tell I've had recent experience getting my baby nephew back to sleep? I hope you didn't mind my singing. I'm not a singer, but my nephew likes it. Must be tone deaf... Poor kid.
