    I graduated 3017 in May 1977 from MCRD
    I wrote a poem "Hell In MCRD" that was a Parody of Hell in Texas The DI's liked it so much they posted it on the wall.
    Was/is it still there?

    Maybe if someone is in here that was in that squadbay after you left may remember but I would wager it was taken down when you left.

    I haven't been on this forum for awhile and saw this post. My son is in the Navy Nuke program. Last year, he graduated his first of three schools, and my wife and I (his parents) attended. Now, I have been out since 1986 after 7 years active duty. We were sitting there not paying attention to much as we waited for the ceremony to commence, when the Chief hollered "MILITARY PERSONNEL - ATTENTION ON DECK!". Sure as hell, I shot straight up in attention mode. Didn't even think about it, it just happened. Glad my son didn't see this, he would have died! It did make me feel damn proud, though, that this happened. Also, was one of two male parents wearing a suit for that graduation, the other was also a USMC vet, and I was proudly wearing my USMC tie as well as my blue star emblem with the US and Navy flags on either side of the blue star. Pride - it's instilled.

    I know exactly what you're talking about Brother. I have been working for the Dept of Defense for 38 years. I work with a lot of former and retired Navy, and I let them know each and every day who the Marine in the outfit is!!!
