Lots of Jarheads in here. Semper Fi to my Marine Corps brethren. I also tip the cover to all the other branches. I currently work for the Air Force and learned a healthy respect for some of the stuff they do. To all you good folks that are war vets, you have my utmost respect. I missed Desert Shield by 2 weeks. Now I wished I would have stayed in long enough to at least go over with my friends. Thank you all for you service and for the people who kept you propped up during your time.

Great foundation for the rest of my career

One memory from early training: Having my thumb almost ripped off when learning how to salute correctly ... Oh those were the days! Yeah, touching was still allowed, I think encouraged.

My daughter is getting married later this month.

I got a new suit and new shoes for the wedding.

Even though I spent more than two hours trimming threads (we used a less politically correct term then for those loose threads) and polishing NEW shoes, GYSGT Perry and SSGT Weeks would find my efforts to be totally UNSAT and I'd be destined to perform "side straddle hops....forever" to pay for my inattention to detail, I still relace my shoes (outboard over inboard).

Fresh out of college in 1973 and expecting to become a Naval Aviator, I quickly learned that the USMC stood between me and a fine Navy flying machine. Turns out that it was a life changing experience. Like I said, 40 years later and I still think of those two fine gentlemen whenever I buy a new pair of shoes. Lots of other times, too.

Attention to detail...a valuable lesson. Just one of many I learned from my militery service.

Thanks Marines, for making me a better man.

Curious if any of you retired folks take advantage of the Space-A opportunities? I Space-Aed a lot over the past 10 years but have slowed down now. Ron

Joined in 69. Navy subs till 78. Loved it, but best memory was when our DI (ABM1 R V Harper) broke about a dozen rules and snuck a tv into our barracks so we could watch the first moon landing. Never will forget that day!!
