    TDH Marines (Nov. 10th / 11th)

    Just wanted to start a thread for the TDH Marines to post in. As TDH is a family obviously the Marines are also. Being a combat veteran of Iraq (current war) I wanted to extend a early HAPPY BIRTHDAY and VETERANS DAY to the Jarheads here!

    Semper FI,
    Dave

    I only have one real birthday and thats Nov 10th. Although ive been out of the Marines since Aug 2000 and have been in the Army since Nov 2000 (Yeah I know but the Army got me out of being a grunt with a high tech MOS that the Corps did not offer, plus promotion is faster) I still defend my Corps.

    If you think being in the Marines is hard try being a Marine in the Army. Twice as much flack from both sides. But ive trained my Soldiers to Corps standards, or at least try. Now im the new First Sgt. "E-8" at my unit and im only a SSGT. "E-6".

    I served with the Marines in Iraq when I was in the Army and proudly wear my (authorized) 1st Mar Div Combat patch.


    SSGT. (Top) Pogo
    0352, 11B, 11H, 14J, 21M

    Happy Birthday Jarheads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Not a Marine, nor US Army, but British Army. I have had the distinct pleasure of serving alongside some of you guys, and I'd like to wish the Marines a very happy Corps Birthday.

    Be safe guys.

    My great grandpa served as a US marine in WWII (Iwo Jima) and I served as a US Navy sailor for 16 yrs. Thanks for your service Marines! I am proud to have served with some of you brave folks out there! Happy birthday to the Corps and happy veterans day to my brothers in arms!

    Hey Chris,

    Where you ever asked this question regarding your 8541 MOS? "Your target is ...., what do you feel after you pull the trigger?" Answer: "The recoil"

    Sorry Chris, curiosity just got the best of me! Looking at your military dates, I was at Chicago MEPS in May '89 and was in Great Mistakes (Great Lakes) boot camp in July '89 and separated from active duty in Oct. '98 then joined the Naval Air Reserve (NAR). Good times...good times!

    Air Foooooorce!!!! I did 8 years active as a C-5 Loadmaster and spent the last 12 playing in the JAG! I did do a 2 year stint in the Army Guard as a Second Lt. Then I woke up and realized that they wanted me back in Iraq after I just got married and had a kid. 8 combat tours is enough for this old man. I am just a crusty ol MSgt.

    Panama 89
    Gulf War part I 91
    Somalia 92
    Haiti 93
    Rwanda 94
    Croatia 95
    Bosnia 96
    Kosovo 99

    This round in the gulf only one tour and hopfully no more. I am too old.
