When he went to the 2nd part of the class in california, he did not come in first, but his buddy did. So now he and his buddy are in the same room at Camp Pendelton at the first duty station, and they decided for an upcoming inspection to put their " Top of Class" awards on a shelf.
    Well some high ranking Marine came through, and decided He wanted the best of the best to serve in Afghanistan. Dan was sent to Kajaki with only a 2 week special
    course, and did not get to go to VIPER for the longer training sessions. He has been in Kajaki for a few months now and has called in rockets and mortar fire and is
    doing his job the best he can. I am very proud of him, as his two MC Grandfathers
    would be if they were still with us. Semper Fi my Son !!!!!!!!!
    Oorah!

    I served during Vietnam. 1972-1975 72B20 was my MOS. Im 59 now, so when My Son went in almost 4 years ago, no one would take me. Ive been an Electrician
    now for 33 years and will have three pensions to live on, besides SS... So I did ok
    for myself after I finished my 3 year enlistment. The Army paid for my college
    which gave me the algebra and things I needed to become an electrician.

    Thank You Josey for the kind thought. My Dad was on Iwo Jima with the 4/25 and
    at least my Son was a Marine as well, and made his Grandpa proud.
