I remember back in the day the Marine Corps was looking for a few good men. They found them. The FMF Corpsman. Those of us who have been there would never trade it for anything. All you have to do is read my sig.

He was recommended to me by a fellow RV driver. The guy is on LTD because of a freakish back accident while pulling wrenches. He works for cash and figures its a good deal as he gets 100% and our government gets the other 0% of my payment. Works for me.

Oh yes that reminds me, I just won the lottery! If anyone wants a piece, just send me your name, address, ss# and a $49 processing fee. I will EFT you a share of the winnings.

We were darn glad you were there when we needed you. Semper Fi.

p.s., Jerry and I met many moons ago at a Texas Boomer's rally.

Every Saturday somebody made rank or wife had a baby, so kegs were free-flowing. And we played softball and football agin em, and seemed to pretty much split the trophy count. Good old days, 70-74.

The Airmen were kept properly segregated from us Swabbies and Jar Heads so we would not corrupt their morals and let em learn how to commit their first debauch and how to properly imbibe.
Most 'em were minors anyways!

Dang! (Polite version) The VA is certainly taking its time, isn't it?! Nothing new in that, I guess.

Yep I get my Soc. Sec. payments by EFT. But this is different.

EFT is a technique that has helped many a victim of PTSD, in addition to reducing or eliminating problems like migraines (like mine). If you Google it, spell it out: Emotional Freedom Technique. Please check it out!

Cheers!
