I thank all of you for allowing me to feel at home again. I have been out for a long time now and it hasn't been the same since. It's hard for me to talk the talk around here especially without being able to walk the walk anymore.
The last couple of days have been just the shot in the arm I needed. (and none of us are any strangers to those that's for sure). The better half is asking what's the deal. She is very caring and supportive and I can go into as much detail as she wants me to but... it would be the same as if I were speaking Cherokee. Just gets lost in the translation.

Hello, I've decided to stop lurking and register. A coworker who won't shut up about being a Marine (and making my bs alarm start to rise; at least he doesn't claim to be a sniper or Force Recon) first made me do a search for exposing Marine fraud.
But I do ask, when you find an outright fraud, where can I go to turn over information? (My current source of irritation being a myspace page.)

Ask him what BN, Company, and Platoon he graduated with in boot camp along with where he graduated and where he was stationed. If you ask enough questions and he doesn't know or has to think more then likely he's making it up. If he's spot on and can give you all the information then more then likely he's legit. Hope that helps.

Current Active Duty F/A-18 Structures/Hydraulics Mechanic.
Did my Boot in "Hollywood" in 2005. Getting closer to the time when I need to hop of the re-enlistment fence or not...
Don't have many interesting stories. I'm a Winger and only have one deployment (Japan) under my belt and from the looks of things I will not be going "Over There". I'm a disgruntled but "needs of the service" as Jack Aubrey would say.
Anyways I'm a WW2 fanatic and I re-enact WW2. My main impression is part of a unit that portrays the 442d RCT (The Nisei Japanese-Americans) and for us Non-Japanese, we do the 34th Infantry Division which the 100th Battalion and later the 442 spent a lot of time with. (I'm Filipino and could look the part but I chose to stay with the standard). So why is that important? Because I got my name from my savvy fellow re-enactors. One surmised I'm a gyrene doing a GI impression... so that made me the GI-rene.
Don't worry though gents... My first event once they found out I was a Marine, they approached me with the fact they were starting a Marine unit I didn't bat an eye.
I have had the honor of meeting SgtMaj Gorczewski. Its a small Marine Corps when you find out that a fellow Marine Gamer (I'm part of a gaming group thats by Marines for Marines) had him as a 1st Sergeant in his Weapons Company. Go figure!

Welcome aboard GIrene! Sounds like a good bunch in your Re-enactments. Glad you got on their Marine Team.
