    Old Marine New to Site

    I ran across this site when googling "pogey bait" to see if it is still used. I found it so interesting that I signed up. Looks like it still is.

    The next thread I saw was an old one about the sobriquet "pi$$ cutter", applied to the cap. When I enlisted (Sept. 1952), we were issued a green one, a cotton khaki one, and a tropical worsted one, along with a barracks cap with a green cover. In Korea, with our winter gear, we were issued a cap with furry ear flaps tied on top that we called "Mongolian pi$$ cutters".

    Welcome aboard!

    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.
