I love the General's jacket. He always was one for the cammies.

One of the Senators from my state of Virginia is Jim Webb. While SECNAV, Sen. Webb pushed and pushed hard for the General's appointment as Commandant. He knew that Gen Gray was the man for the job.
I'd like your permission to send Sen. Webb the link to your post. Not that we are on speaking terms but I know he reads his email. If you could grant me permission I think he'd get a kick out of seeing the General back "home" amongst his Marines. And to be honest I think Jim Webb would have loved to been there!!!!
I won't send without your permission

Commandant of Commandants
I always liked General Gray when he first became Commandant he suggested doing away with the old pft and doing something similar to the new course.He said we aren't breeding Marines to run away we should be breeding them for strength to stay and fight then carry any wounded back when they are done.That is a picture to cherish WMARINE .Did the Khaki shirt issue come up at all it all you hear in Ohio.

Sent a link to Senator Webb with your photos. Ever try contacting a member of Congress? DON'T!! the questions are incredible. If I hear back from Sen Webb I will post. Thank you again for sharing those great photos and giving me the permission to forward them
Now from the sublime to the ridiculous. I try to hang back and offer advice to potential officers etc but I was stupid enough to step into the sh$t storm re. the recruit who was worried about transportation problems. I sent him two PM's explaining that he is getting the best advice possible and that he should walk away and get ready to ship. Don't think I did much good

Never tried contacting a Senator...lol...and hopefully I won't have to.
Glad you liked the pictures!
As for the young man you're talking about, it's nice to ask those types of questions and get a general idea of what to expect $$$ wise, but it's something he has to leave up to the ones who do that for a living.

Thanks for letting me know what that pin is on Gen Grays lapel. My brother and I were trying to figure that one out today.
