MCRD SD 2004 PLT 3071 I guess I'm one of the youngest...can I cut the cake?

"Platoon 1083 Delta Company, Senior Drill Instructor Staff Sergeant Vilema- Best on the Depot- Best in the Corps- Oh Rah!"

Back in the '80, I was TDY (civilian job, light cover) to an installation in SF area. No one I was working with knew my background, or that I had been in the Corps.
One day early November, I get a call telling me to report to the security office. I excuse myself and go. Dang near, everyone in Security was Green, they knew who I was and invited me to join them for the local Birthday celebration. Somehow that cake cutting was the one that still sticks in my memory above all the others.
I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.
I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

2nd Battalion, Fox Company "Platoon Two-thousand one zero two, Senior Drill Instructor SSGT Ingram. Highly motivated, truly dedicated, hard core devil dog, err."
GySgt Ingram read my promotion warrant to Sergeant a few years later. He recognized me a little, but I sure the hell knew who he was. Quite an honor for me.

Wow buckeye - you are a boot. What's your MOS? Where are you headed?
You did hear that we are not allowed to call Marines "boots" anymore right? The proper term is "Junior Enlisted Warrior" which is one of the few words we are not allowed to acronym...
