07-01-10, 06:55 PM #438Hi,
My name is Tracey. I'm kinda nervous about posting in her for the simple fact that I'm NOT a Marine. my brother is the Marine. I found this site, because I was browsing around trying to find a site that was offering support for families preparing for deployment. This looked like a real winner... but since I've been browsing around it looks like I'm surrounded by mostly Marine to Marine support. I really hope i'm not stepping on any toes here by posting. I just wanted to introduce myself. and say Hey Yall.
and thank every Marine that has given for this country.

MARINES are Sui Generis...no wonder no one understands them; regardless of who they are. ONLY A MARINE UNDERSTANDS A MARINE. It is because of our job training and performance. NO ONE has higher standards & morale. There is no Brotherhood like the " BROTHERHOOD FORGED UNDER FIRE " If you ain't been there; being a MARINE you"ll more than likely make it before your enlistment is up. SEMPER FIDELIS!

As you can see from my signature below, I booted at PI in 1965 (Plt 149). I was a weekend warrier and did not get the chance to to 'Nam. In my 1st year in my reserve unit in Lafayette, Louisiana, I was a grunt and then the unit was changed to a MP company. Did four summer camps at Camp Lejuene and one at Camp Pendleton. Did MP duty at only one summer camp because I transfered, during the summers, to an Amtrack unit in Tampa, Florida and served as a cook (the XO there asked me if I could type - nope; if I could drive a tractor - nope; if I could fix a tractor - nope).
As a 64-year old senior, I'm now taking a creative writing course in a senior citizen center here in Austin, Texas and I'm now writing about my boot days. This message board is tops for jogging my fading memory.

Thanks for your reply and welcome. You should have seen those blue-haired little ladies in my writing class when I read them my first PISD story. You see, I asked them if they wanted a PG-rated reading or an R-rated version. They exchanged glances and said "Why not, let's hear the R-rated version!" Boy did they flinch when I laced them with the recalled DI expletives.
They also squirmed when I told them about crapping with 9 other guys in a room with no toilet stalls. I'm considering showing them the following clip from Full Metal Jacket, which pretty much sums up my boot experience in 1965.
