My great-grandfather served in the Marines... was at Belleau Wood - which you Marines (and hopefully some others here) have heard of! And if you have a copy of the Leatherneck magazine this month... his picture is in it too! (Bottom of pg. 62, 9th from the left, bottom row) In the "Until Now" article by Mark E. Ryan about GySgt Fred W. Stockham who won the Congressional Medal of Honor.
So ... Thanks to all the veterans who have served this country over the years. And Thank You to all the service men and women who are currently serving here and abroad - especially in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thoughts and prayers with you all, today, tomorrow and always.
My barracks wouldnt be hard to find. It was right on the parade deck. Sucked watching everyone graduate all the time!
It's been 22 years since I stepped on the yellow footprints at P.I.
Oorah Devil Dogs!
I was on the second deck, i would try to sleep in my top bunk watching the air craft take off from the air port. Now that sucked.
