I am new
My name is tracey and i am new to this site. I am joininig because my BEST FRIEND since kindergarten just joined the Marines and i am SO very proud of him but, i am ALSO very worried about him. I love him in a very brotherly way, but i am going to miss him. We both moved out at a young age of 17 together and bought an aparment. We've been through SO much we often find it hard to believe that me and him didn't end up together in the long run but, i just wanted a support group to belong to apart of a family to try and SOME kind of understanding about the brotherhood he fell in love with and left me for.

Welcome aboard Ms Tracey. I am sure you will get a hint of what the "brotherhood" is and how much it means to those it affects. Just remember "Love is all". We are all one big family here and feel free to pick our brains (what's left of them)!!!!!

This Marine Won't Vote for John McCain
John McCain of 2008 is not the John McCain that was my hero until 2000. In 2000, he let Karl Rove and George Bush (a true idiot) push him around. In 2004, he kissed Bush's ass even though he knew his good friend John Kerry was smarter, braver and more qualified to be president than George Bush.
In 2008, he sold his soul to the Republican Party just to get what amounts to a lifetime achievement award - the nomination to a party that has ruined the country. His judgement, aka Sarah Palin is non-existent. Sarah Palin is an idiot and anyone that votes for her is dumber than dirt. I have always expounded the philosphy to never vote for someone dumber than me, that leaves Sarah Palin out.
John McCain graduated 894th out of 899. Sarah Palin went to five schools to get a BA in communications. Any moron should be able to figure out that someone from Harvard and the Harvard Law review is more qualified, more analytical and regardless of experience the person to lead the country.
The tax bull**** is just that - a lie; Joe the Plumber cares only about Joe the Plumber. How will McCain pay for the 10 billion dollar a month war(s). He is an idiot and any one that votes for him similarly equipped intellectually

Marine and Friend
New to this site, am retired MM1(SW) Navy here. I had the pleasure of serving with several marines on the USS Eisenhower, at Dam Neck as well as on the USS Austin LPD-4. I first met a group of young marines on the USS Eisenhower when I checked aboard. As time went on I learned that they were as courius about my job as I was about theirs. I was a engine room snipe. I can say with pride that I never did meet a marine on the Eisenhower that was not professional in any manner. I just learned that a Paulding County GA police officer was killed in a car accident. He also a retired Marine as well as a friend that lived about 4 houses from my family and myself. I know this sailor shead a tear for a marine and will always remember Mick Davis as a friend as well as a person that never met a stranger.

This site gives me that warm, fuzzy feeling. Like when you've got to make a headcall and you're stuck in formation while standing inspection. I'm still working on reenlistment after medical retirement and the wife is supportive.
She's not supportive enough to make me some SOS in the morning but she'll learn...
