    Any 1/8 Marines out there?

    So I just found out that at the end of October, I will be checking in to the 1/8. I heard about our deployment schedule and I'm pretty excited. I don't think I'm allowed to discuss what I've heard so far on here, am I?

    Anyways, if there are any 1/8 Marines out there that can offer some advice or give me some insight as to what I have to look forward to, I'd appreciate it!

    Thanks
    S/F

    Thank you Cpl...I figured that I shouldn't be saying anything I'm lookin forward to finding out more personal opinion about the 1/8. I've already read up on their web page and it seems they've just returned from Iraq, or are returning shortly

    I was with Bravo Co. 1/8 during the Fallujah push. Some of the BEST Marines I have served with. 8th Marines has a long legacy of GREAT Marines. You have big boots to fill. Go make you path and good luck!

    Yeah I'm in 1/8. I actually have to cut my leave short so I pick up you guys from Geiger. I'll shoot you a pm with my phone number and name.

    I find it ironic. 26 years ago we lost Marines in Lebanon and now new Marines join our unit on the same day.

    Finally met up with Lupo just now. No I didn't haze him, just talked for a good while. Pretty good Marine, mature as **** if you ask me. Great things coming from him I'm sure.

    LCpl: thank you for the ride to the MCX the other day. I can't tell you how appreciative I am of someone offering to help out a boot from another company the first couple months that we're here. Thanks again! S/F
