    I had a buddy who drove F-4's before transitioning to F/A-18's.

    One of the great airplanes of all time!

    I was surprised to see this one wasn't posted. I did my 20 years pushing subs through the water, but I remember seeing the Marines running on the other side of the fence in San Diego and thinking that I was a little grateful that I didn't choose to be a Marine, and a little jealous that I didn't also.

    This has always been one of my favorites, probably because the younger Marine is an EOD Brother!

    I think one would have to be dead not to be moved. I read through the 'Final Salute' article yesterday, and kept getting something in my eye, can't figure it out.

    This is my good friend Aaron in Iraq two years ago. He's a Marine reservist. He took a year off from school and left his girlfriend of the time (now wife!) to serve. He received NO money for school because our college accepts absolutely no government money from any federal or state organization. He graduated in May as the outstanding senior men, well deserved.

    Talk about a man of character.

    Why? Probably because they are a really good school that wants to remain as a really good school.

    That's the one that always gets me, of the crop of "new" photos.

    1stSgt. Bradley Kasal (now Sergeant Major), a hard charging devil dog if there ever was one! Recipient of the Navy Cross for heroic actions and selfless sacrifice in Fallujah, Iraq on 13 Nov 04.

    (Notice: 7 gunshot wounds (7.62mm AK-47), 40 pieces of grenade shrapnel, the last man out, and he is still clutching his pistol... finger off the trigger! Marine Corps leadership training at it's best!)

    You can read about him here, here and here


    Now that's what I call "esprit de corps!"

    Semper Fi!

    (It is rumored he is being considered to receive the Medal of Honor) Most deserved as far as this Marine is concerned!

    There's a handful of them that don't take federal funds. The one in question is Hillsdale College in Michigan, which is the only (I believe) that doesn't take state or federal funds (Grove City, Patrick Henry, and I think just one other don't take any federal funds).

    SIXTO is pretty much on the money. Hillsdale has far more autonomy than any other school in the nation (at least from the gov't; we do, of course, have responsibilities to our donors), and I think that's reflected by the nature of the school. Outside of the military academies, we're also the only school in the nation that requires a course on the US Constitution to graduate.

    The move to independence was a response to government pressure in the 1970's to alter our admissions and athletic policies. The school was offended by the implication of racism, as we were the first school in the nation (in 1848) to explicitly state in its charter that we accepted students without regard to race, religion, creed, or gender.

    In any case, the school told the government to butt out and has been far better off ever since.
