    Ben has had a session with his CO and the bottom line is that he wants to stay in and the Corps want to retain him. He was told his probable course for the future and it is what he was looking for. He has a couple more Marines reporting to him for his logistics and network duties. The portion of the squadron not deployed MEU went to Alpeena, MI for some weapons training and got some good hours. Just got a new office with a window. They got a pup, a Great Dane and it's up to 50 pounds in I think three months. I won't tell ALL I know, but will say he is building a very solid foundation for his life and taking full advantage of what the Marine Corps has made possible for him to achieve.

    Hope your son enjoyed Alpena. I've been there a number of times with the Michigan Air Guard (who runs the base). I'm sure there have been infrastructure improvements done since the last time I was there (1991).

    He said the training was good, but they were confined to base, which makes for long evenings. He was hppy to get some more qualification fulfilled.

    Have not posted in a while. Not a lot of news to share. But Ben has gained enough experience to be lead on some of the training. And he is also getting trained for a future deployment as a forward observer. Aftes OIC of logistics, he did a stint for IT, and currently Maintainers. Quite a challenger to keep Harriers flying. On a personal note note, he has airbb and vrbo listing. Captain's Quarters https://www.vrbo.com/2033376?unitId=2597896
