    Not a new member, but back after a while

    Yeah, I'm not a new member, but I took a 3 month summer vacation down on a little island off the coast of South Carolina in order to begin my career. So some of you might remember me. I've got a lot of reading to catch up on here, but I"m gonna try to jump right back in as much as possible while home on leave. Looks like the site has been doing well, glad its still here.

    It's good to be back and have communication with the world after being cut off. And to all my brothers on here, Semper Fidelis.

    Welcome back. I'm assuming you were at USMC boot camp? That's a very "different" type of vacation. Glad you have communication again.

    Welcome back.

    Parris Island is a vacation destination now?


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.

    No, despite what the liberals want, PI is not a tourist destination, although that could just be because of the sand fleas. I was there putting in my 3 months worth of blood, sweat, and tears in order to earn the title.
