Careful, medals such as

'Tet Offensive', 'Honorable Discharge','Cold War' and other so-called 'Commemorative' are not Official decorations. You may buy and include them in your 'I Love Me' shadow box but you cannot wear...

I had to go into ER a couple of years ago. While I was lying on the bed the nurse came in to do some tests. She comments, 'You're a Marine aren't you?'. I asked her how she knew; 'Your shoelaces are...

That;s right about the Corps back in the 50's. Even the Pendleton Commissary had strict rules, no children under a certain age were allowed in. I had to stay in the car with my two (1 and 2 yrs. old)...

Well, I had no problem. All software and hardware transitioned easily. A couple of pieces required new drivers, but the Mfr. provided that. I subsequently moved from W7 32 to W7 64. That also went...

We tried, but we only produced Basic Marines, everything else you became was due to the Officers and NCOs who led you after Boot Camp.

Just as I thought. I was SDI for 151, so it was the same Series. Glad to hear at least one Marine from that series is still alive.
