    Coin Check! To you VETERANS! God Speed, and, um Coin Check! God Bless your time in!

    Never look back! Always move forward!

    Happy Veterens' Day!!!! This is not the holiday where we cry, we did that eariler this year (and most of the year). This is were we celebrate survival!!!!!!!

    I'll start this one off with a bit of cross-service 'spin'. I'm a Marine who will Coin Check you with one of my personal coins, presented personally to me by XXXXXXXX Former 7h Group Commander (and that man was a stud!). I was what they call in the used car business, 'A Rent A Marine' to the Group.......... and the Doggies took good care of me and my team, and even respected my Corpsman, ocassionally!! Respect!!! The only thing that is wrong is that the USA can't spell Captain right. For a Marine, it is CAPT! Get it straight.........LOL

    It is not about where or why, this is about pride. This is just about a stupid 'Coin Check'!

    There are still days, now, that I am happy to be alive, and then I just take my HD and split lanes on the freeway at stupid speeds.......... just sets the soal free.......................

    If I can find it, I have a coin given to me by Admiral Mullen, then Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. It's around here somewhere.

    Excellent. I met him several times. Not too bad for Navy Brass! I much more enjoyed running into Mattis in the middle of the night in the desert, many times.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    I'd have taken the plug nickel, had they'd offered one. I was in the 'old school' Corps. Got some ornaments in a box somewhere, just seen 'em a dozen years ago, the box anyway. I know what's inside. Got a couple purple ones, that got me some 'down-time', but in 'Nam.... who didn't?

    If nightmares are memories, I have plenty often enough.
    But, now is the day to remember those who did not share my good fortune of returning from that Bloody, Stinkin' He!!hole. Can't think of 3 memories I want from there.
    THEY ARE THE ONES TO BE REMEMBERED. I was glad to serve our Constitutional Republic and will do so again if necessary.

    Have to do some digging around but I still have my coins from the 75th MAS and the 56th MAS. Sadly both units no longer exist.

    Didn't the 75th also fly the VC135, VC140 and T39's out of Ramstein? Been 32 years since I left there and it's kind of foggy any more.

    The 75th was deactivated at Travis in 1991 then reactivated at Ramstien in 1993 and reequipped with C-9 Nightingale Med Evacs.

    Coins? used to have a few on payday. They didn't last long though.
    But seriously, no coins, no real medals, just some gedunk and the memories.
