So I just found out that at the end of October, I will be checking in to the 1/8. I heard about our deployment schedule and I'm pretty excited. I don't think I'm allowed to discuss what I've heard so far on here, am I?

Anyways, if there are any 1/8 Marines out there that can offer some advice or give me some insight as to what I have to look forward to, I'd appreciate it!

Thanks

Thank you Cpl...I figured that I shouldn't be saying anything :) I'm lookin forward to finding out more personal opinion about the 1/8. I've already read up on their web page and it seems they've just returned from Iraq, or are returning shortly

I was with Bravo Co. 1/8 during the Fallujah push. Some of the BEST Marines I have served with. 8th Marines has a long legacy of GREAT Marines. You have big boots to fill. Go make you path and good luck!

Yeah I'm in 1/8. I actually have to cut my leave short so I pick up you guys from Geiger. I'll shoot you a pm with my phone number and name.

I find it ironic. 26 years ago we lost Marines in Lebanon and now new Marines join our unit on the same day.

Wasn't too long ago when you watched me get off the buses and reported to 1/8. I love my life too.

Finally met up with Lupo just now. No I didn't haze him, just talked for a good while. Pretty good Marine, mature as **** if you ask me. Great things coming from him I'm sure.

LCpl: thank you for the ride to the MCX the other day. I can't tell you how appreciative I am of someone offering to help out a boot from another company the first couple months that we're here. Thanks again! S/F
