    To some ****ant group, somewhere, practically any flag could be viewed as a "hate" symbol. The stars and bars is proudly displayed by many of southern heritage as symbol of the sacrifices made by...

    When I was stationed there during the early 60's, the locals were proud of their southern heritage and that was their right. It was fashionable among those from the north to accuse them of forgetting...

    This seems like the best place to ask, but if someone drops out of Marine OCS after three weeks with no other service, do they even get a DD214?

    I still know one of the Marine aviators who flew out of Yonpo dropping napalm and shooting up the Chinese to protect Task Force Faith. Sometimes the enemy was pressing them so closely that the...
