    "Old Corps" Marines

    Alright, there are a lot of Leathernecks here but who is the saltiest "Old Corps" Marine?

    Let's go with the year that you graduated boot camp.

    PI 1987 for me - I think I am in the Pepsi Generation of the Old Corps.

    Training means learning the rules. Experience means learning the exceptions.

    I'm sure there will be lots of folks before my 1969 graduation from the University of Parris Island.

    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.

    I can't yet say that I am "Old Corps" although I have the idea that one day I will.

    The preceding post may contain sarcasm; it's just better that way. However, it is still intended with construction and with the Love of my L-rd Y'shua.

    If you give a man a fish, he will eat for a day. If you teach a man to fish, he will sit in a boat and drink beer.

    Commissioned 1982. Hard to believe it was over 25 years ago.

    Still had steel pots, .45's, and M151 jeeps. Old Corps is always a relative term though......

    2004. Messed up my shoulder and spent an extra month aboard MCRD Parris Island. Does that make me saltier?
