A Reverse 10 %

In L-4-11 Pendleton 1961 we had this Marine that had a 5.0 5.0 out of boot camp. When I got into the outfit he was a private on a 105MM. He was a character, everyone knew about his con & pro marks out of boot camp, now he was a sh*t bird.

One day me and him got into it and we had it out behind the barracks. Yikes, I didn't know he was Golden Gloves St. Louis. Lucky he broke has hand on my hard head or it could of been worse. I did pick him up and throw him down an a embankment before they broke it up. We were good friends after that.

His wife came from home to live with him and for awhile he straightened out and he got promoted up to L/Cpl no trouble. Then he came in one day all black and blue, scuttlebutt had it that he caught his wife and got his ass whipped.

Back to private again, I don't remember what he did.

We had a beer bust one Saturday and and I knew it was going to be a ****** blood bath and took a pass. I was right, when the battery returned even the gunny's "T" shirt was full of blood. My friend the boxer had good teeth and a handsome smile , but one of the guys had it in for him and sucker punched him and knocked out his two front teeth. Then it was clique against clique.

The next day Sunday when I got up to go to the mess hall, the duty had locked all the doors as the guy that knocked the teeth out was outside trying to get in and he had an ET and wanted to go after the boxer. That individual was never the same (mentally) after the shellacking he got for knocking out the boxers teeth.

The Old Corps, LMAO
