    Today was the last day


    of being on active duty in the Marine Corps. Came in September 1997, been to Kuwait twice, Iraq once, Thailand twice, Okinawa three times, Alaska, Mainland Japan, and there's some other places that I was too drunk at the time to remember clearly.

    As a good buddy of mine once said, "it was the best time of my life, but i'll never do it again."

    If it means anything, I believe our country is a better/safer place due to people like you. Thanks for your commitment. Now, go out and get yours. You deserve it.

    Semper Fi bro! One of the hardest things I've ever done was get out of the corps. You leave alot of good people behind. BUT I'm glad I'm out. Like you said, glad I did it, glad I'm done with it. Happy bday as well- you had two this month-(USMC Bday!). Good luck to you!

    Ditto on everything said.....uuhh..... except for the calf implants (WTF?). I have great respect for people who voluteer for active duty. Especially in these crazy times. My life's work revolves around helping you guys out (Hope some of the stuff I design and build has come in handy out in the field )

    The world isn't that bad. Hopefully you've gained some skills to get employed (send me a resume if you like). If not, I've worked with many people from the corp and can say that everyone of them is hard working and organized. So you've gained those skills no matter what. Thank-you for serving. It is greatly appreciated!!

    Thanks for serving bro. You sound ready to close this chapter of your life, as most of us were when we got out, now time to enjoy the rest of it.

    If I could find a saluting smiley I'd post it up.

    we did the most recent cobra gold. thailand is the hottest place i've ever been to, lost 15lbs in 8 days. all the food made me sick, it was horrible. anywho, yeah, i was stationed at hansen in late '98 for about 6 months or so, and i still remember sinville too.
