It's possible to make 1stSgt in 14, but not common. Either way, I smell troll.

Just a friendly reminder. Nobody zinged.

Here's what I think !
When I got out , I never knew what to say to my brother-in-law about being in the Corps and then I brought up how my Marine brothers held up at Khe Sanh , and he just smiled and informed me of him being there too ! He's even got a newspaper article of the 1st Cav . arriving there on his " love me wall " .
Guess the Corps didn't have enough copters to do that , that day !
Brother - in -law is deceased now , only made it to the big 59 , age wise !
He can have all his stories , medals , Sgt. rank , his love me wall and anything else , as I'm glad that the Corps made me tough enough to make it past 59 ( will be 63 soon, brother is still over a year ahead of me and alive yet ) .
Now that's arrogance !

I sent these two fine articles to my wife and kids. My wife told me a while back that I should hold the 27 years I worked in prison and retired as a Captain higher than the time I spent in the MARINES. I told her real quick that it did not hold a light of my accomplishment of being a United States Marine Corps!!!!!! It will always be my highest honor I have received.
