    Be sure your background is squeaky clean. No arrests, no drugs, no bad friends, no marginal associations. Nothing the least bit suspicious in your life.

    Apparently, this has been on-going for some time, as previous issues of the catalog have the same photos in the interior pages.

    But putting it on the cover made it blatantly obvious.

    You may also want to consider the USMC Reserve. Back in the day, USMCR had more leeway on age restrictions because of the longer expected period of service.

    You'd still have to complete Boot and...

    A lot of comments on Fox about this guy, Andrew Codispot.

    Yes, his ribbons are out of order and screwed up. Yes, his t-shirt was untucked and visible under his blouse when he bent over in the...

    Not my place to judge. I sincerely hope not, though.

    I do find it hard to believe that he wasn't trained in something as basic as "blue is always up and to the right."

    He's young. That...

    CAR upside down on TV

    I don't rate a CAR. The closest I got to combat was fixing stuff that got blown up in country that was salvageable while I was far away on Okinawa. I am in awe of those who do rate it.

    What units? What duty stations? I knew a couple of Hendersons from 69-72.

    However, men and women are not defined by nationality. Just sayin.

    Not all women are created equal. There are some amazing examples of women in combat roles in the IDF and the Soviet Army, for example.

    Lyudmila Pavlichenko had 309 CONFIRMED sniper kills (all in...

    He was commissioned 2LT in 1972 and served in the 3MARDIV during the VN Era. Like some of us that enlisted in 1969, he was "of the Era, but not in country."

    I, too, was in WESTPAC in 1971-72, but...

    My bad for not fact-checking a link sent to me. I apologise for any offense. I am pleased beyond belief that General Mattis will be SecDef.

    Thanks for setting the record straight. I...

    Oh, good!

    A photo op!

    My takeaway is the US does not have to be ready for General Mattis. ISIS are the ones that need to stand by to get their family jewels ripped out their nostrils...

    There is a completely unsubstantiated rumor his nickname was derived from the UMSC (enlisted) wine of choice in the late 60s/early 70s at MCRD San Diego: Mad Dog 20-20.

    I am proud to be a graduate...

    Back in the day -- 1960s and before -- no one wore a name tag (as they do in the Army, for example). "Mac" was a convenient generic name when one Marine might not know another's name or rank.

    Back when I was in during the Vietnam Era, "oorah" wasn't used.
