Let The Wet Down Begin
Ladies and Gentlemen the bar is now open and the the first round is on me. May I propose a toast to Lance Corporal Meyer AKA LivinSoFree who we have watched evolve from a highly motivated poolee to that of of an a j squared away United States Marine. He was promoted on Sunday so please be gentle with the pinning arms are probably a little sore right now. Who will be the next NCO be to keep to the tradition to buy?
Congratulations Meyer you certainly rate it
No better friend/No worse enemy

I'd buy him one! I still remember the day they promoted me to lance, didn't even tell me what it was, just called me out of formation, and I thought I had done something wrong! LOL

I remember my 'Lance' rifles getting pinned on. Base camp at Subic bay. Couldn't raise my arms for a couple of days.
Saluting was a REAL B!tch.
A round at the 'E' club $$$$
Are you old enough to drink ??

I remember when I got PFC. I had to walk through a gauntlet of MARINES from my unit. Each had a fist of iron to pin my first stripes. At the end of the gauntlet, I had to turn around and go back. At the end, my arms were sticking out like a bunny rabbit looking for a hand out of Easter Eggs. And when I recieved l/cpl, I was more papared. When I got home that same day, my mom ask me "whats wrong?" I said to her "I got promoted!".
