    New here, Morning Marines

    Morning Marines, Iím not your average Marine, yes I went To Paris Island between April and July of 1978 graduated, then onto the 8th marines where I went to FROC school. I was with 1/8 headquarters before I volunteered for a med float, was to meet up with med float in Spain.
    Never met the Float, got caught up in legal issues with Spain, spent 3years 9 months trying to get out of it.
    I actually got sentenced to a 5 year prison sentence in Cadiz prison over there, served 13 months before my appeal and sentenced was reduced to a 6 month time served. Before that spent about a year and half in the Brigg on the Rota naval base, In and out, between there and the Marine barracks.
    I am an Honorable discharged Marine, Did nothing wrong except being in the wrong place at the wrong time, was only in Spain ONE day before arrested was waiting to go to my ship.
    Long story met up with a couple sailors who wanted to show me around town.
    I didnít do much in the Marines, At the barracks I did maintenance work, Did do a 6 month stint working with the Sea Bees running cable TV on the base in between going in and out of the Brigg and before going to prison.
    The Marines or Navy neither had any charges to hold or place on me for any actions I done, even earned my good conduct medal from the Marines while in Spain.

    What's up with yau'll. The Corps was wrong. In between his jail and brig stints, he was an honest Marine. You know that old saying........I don't always spend most of my Marine enlistment in the Brig......but when I do.....I get an Honorable discharge!

    I was going along pretty well, till he still got a "good cookie medal " after going in-and-out of the Navy brig and Spanish prison. The very first offense would've nipped that in the bud!

    have at least One Office hours wasn't a
    real Marine........

    yourself comfortable ........

    Some of us saw the elephant,
