    The way I check out posers is if they can't remember their platoon number, I then ask if they can remember their mothers name.

    I guess it's possible to forget your platoon number, but I would just as likely forget my birthday. Which is to say not at all. Platoon 1120 graduated 27 Jan 1977.

    See if you remember it after being out of the Corps for over 60 years.

    I do not remember my platoon number. I forgot it years ago while I was still active duty. I remember my Drill Instructors from the platoon I did most of my training but not the names from the ones I graduated with - only spent like 7 days with them. I am on record as graduating and did 20 years, but to date - no one has ever found me in a platoon book. Things happen. I'm not saying the guy is not a poser - but it does bring up questions. There used to be "A" schools in Tustin and El Toro for some aviation MOS's in the early 80"s. Not sure which ones or how long but there were some.

    I was at El Toro from early 77 to late 80, and I remember there was an MOS school there. I can't remember what it was (it wasn't MY MOS, so why should I?) but I remember that their open squad bay type barracks were on mainside, between the perimeter road and the chow hall.

    I didn't even think forgetting your platoon number was possible.

    Sgt. ... WOW! I actually forget the last guy's name...oh... Sgt. Castillo.

    I stood on the yellow footprints on December 27, 2005 and graduated March 24.

    I'm not exactly sure how I would ever forget this stuff.

    I don't remember the exact dates. I know I graduated PI Sept 2000, Plt 1065 SDI SSgt Graham DI Sgt Anderson Di Sgt Schroeder, but I'll be damned if I can remember the day I arrived at PI or the exact date I graduated. I think it was the 12th?
