:flag:tgwkreu7, was glad to see someone was at P.I. before me ( 46 yrs. ) was about ready to think I was the oldest MARINE on here ( maybe the ugliest not the oldest ). Congradulations to you on your 64yrs.

Thanks to all of you brothers who shared in our Island Adventure. It makes me feel bad because I was born in 1952 (the year you got out)and was at the greatest island in the WORLD in 1970.

33 years ago this past Sunday I arrived on the yellow footprints at MCRD, San Diego, got my head shaved, while standing at the boxes inventoring initial issue, I passed out! Woke up with a D.I. standing over me. My chin was split open, got my first Navy ambulance ride, stitches, threw up all night on the deck due to a concussion. Firewatch wouldn't let me go to the head. Did after that, though. Whoa, what a night.
