Yes, indeed, this wasn't the first time and probably won't be the last time that the runway looked so inviting to a scared and confused recruit. Soon after my platoon was formed up in the summer of...

I know they all carried the issue .45 pistol when in the bush with we grunts but there was one I remember that also carried a pump shotgun. As you all know, I'm sure, back in '69 our Corpsman spent 6...

Merry Christmas to all my brothers, alive and deceased.
And to my Mom's memory, married to the Corps for 25 years....

As others have suggested, and some volunteered for such duty, more moderators or those in a position of trust and confidence that can offer valuable assistance when needed and also, help with the...
Photos of the brave American troops killed in action when their helicopter was shot down by enemy fire on August 6, 2011 in Afghanistan.
God Bless them all !
Same, same here !
That's the only course of action and well done !
A salute to you and your men.
Semper Fi, Scott
Well said !
I agree Dave. All of us have personal disappointments, some of our own design and some not, either way, the Corps is what you make of it or will make you into what it needs. Make the cut and move on...
This thread makes sense to me. Simple and self-explanatory, in my opinion.
What part of exchange ideas and thoughts with your Brothers, on this forum, doesn't fit this thread ? The topic or thread...
I had my share of leeches, what we Nam grunts considered an occupational norm, just as mosquitoes and malaria, heat, humidity, snakes, monsoon rains, gook sores and heat rash. These and many more...
I have enjoyed this thread, as I too, have much interest in that which is difficult to understand or comprehend rationally or without physical proof. Just as being a Christian requires faith based...

Having read and absorbed much of what this particular forum member and author of this thread has written on this site, it is apparent to me that most of what has been penned by him, has been in jest,...
My prayers and thoughts are with you and your family. I wish you peace my friend.
Thank you Captain Kirk for more comforting words.
A special remembrance to all of us that have already lost our Fathers.
This day can be difficult.

I too have had this problem from day one and I still can't figure it out. It is true that you must allow cookies and also you must not have pop-up windows blocked. You can find this under your...

I also remember that becoming a U.S. Marine was my one and only goal. Enlist, past my physical and other tests, make it through boot camp and other infantry training, Viet-Nam, here I come. I also...
First, thank you for your kind words.
My Dad always had a special love for the Royal Marines, possibly because he served with some in the Korean War at a place called the Chosin...
I too am a loner. Like you, I did not fit in anymore and I guess I still don't.
I tried to join a few organizations such as the MCL but shortly after, I felt out of place. I attend and go...
We all handle it differently.
There is no one right way to deal with the effects of war on an individual.
Each of us has our own memories and experiences and each of us suffers in our own way....
Hang in there Bro, you may feel alone, WE may feel alone... but I've still got your back and I know you've got mine. The miles and time separate us, the bond however is intact.

Actually, only one of us was virginal, but she did make me believe in the tooth fairy for a few days. My condition mentally was far from being able to cope with her qualifications and well endowed...

Believe it or not, I discovered my gift shortly after return from R & R when I was on one of our four hole crappers and of all people, who should sit down near me but our Company Six. I let...

It has to be my R & R in Sydney, Australia in the summer of '69. I lost a lot of money, got drunk and lost my cherry to a nice round-eye girl and came back with a "gift" she gave me.

I agree that a medical condition that precludes service or graduation, once discovered, does not make her a quitter possibly in her eyes. But her own words say she ran out of motivation and mentally...
