United States Marine Corps
26 years
two tours Viet Nam
Master Gunnery Sergeant
Marine Rifle and Pistol team
Sniper training
Helicopter machine gunner
Admin at base level
Congressional Liaison Officer 3dMAW
Awards Officer 3dMAW

My greatest honor was serving this country and the people of it. I miss the Marine Corps every single day, miss the young kids, the old lifers, the young officers and some general grade officers that I call true friends. Life has been very good to me, and mostly because of the training I received from the Marine Corps, the great men and women that I fought with, the friends I lost at a very early age. All made me wiser and stronger.

And thanks to all of you that appreciate what others do for you.

One of the great speeches given to a graduation class last year was from an Admiral...he started it off with "making your bed each morning"...I will look it up and see if I can find it.

I found it. The second link is the abridged version of his speech. The 3rd link is for all of us who woke up in the morning..but revised

278th Armored Calvary Regiment (det) Air Cav 1979-1985. Started as an E-2, worked my way through OCS, and left shortly thereafter. It was a reserve unit, and my CO was killed in an OH-6 crash. The guy who replaced him was a drunk, and a REMF to top it off. Many left.
