Well, I'm no longer located on my FOB in Afghanistan as the advon are on our way home. We are at another Camp here for a few days and I wanted to spread the news finally about being promoted to Corporal on the 1st. I'm not going to be on much during the next week or so due to traveling, so I updated my rank avatar to reflect.

I remember going from Lance to Corporal, of course that was 1OCT66, but it felt like a big step for me at the time.......

I weep for what this country is becoming, and fear for my children and grandchildren's future if any more democrats gain national office. We lose more and more freedoms every single day to creeping nannystatism and those who vote for Democrats only want to increase that. Anyone voting for a 'dem' is someone who likely wants to take everything YOU have worked for and mortgage your kids future as well.

Dont sell yourself short and run like hell at the end of the promotion ceremony. You better have earned your bloodstripes on both legs from every Nco in your Platoon. Congradulations Corporal, now you must lead from the front. Study your knowledge.

I remember well my promotion to corporal. It was a 'meritorious' promotion because of my cooking at Camp Geiger during a reserve summer camp. And that was even after I used margarine instead of butter to make 20 gallons of chicken gravy -- it turned green. Lots of food coloring later, it was fine.
