We had a "motivation ditch." It was called Ribbon Creek. I was in after the McKeon thing, but we still got a lotta threats about taking a hike to the creek. Happened once while we were pulling butts at the range. Ribbon Creek ran right behind us and we could see what they were threatening. Not a pleasant thought, wading in that thing.

Why don't people fill out their Profile??
I'd like SOMEBODY, to tell me why a new member, refuses to fill out his Profile. Are they ashamed of thier time in the service? At least the rest of us would like a valid reason. I, really DON'T understand......Doc Greek

Went through Parris Island in 1978. Great experience. I was a 17 year old kid when I entered and a man when I graduated.

PMI from April 1978 through Nov. 1980. Trained approx. 50 platoons on B and C Lines. Remember sight alignment, trigger squeeze, point of aim = point of impact at 300 yards, etc.? Miss the heat and sand fleas (Ha!).
