    OORAH!

    I enlisted in the Marine Corps on my 18th birthday, which was during the spring semester of my senior year in high school, 1969. I would have enlisted earlier but I did not have parental consent to do so. Though I had intended to enlist from the time I was about 15, my decision was cemented by an observation made by a recruiter shortly before I signed my contract. As he snuffed out a Camel cigarette in an overflowing glass ashtray that, under other circumstances, could have been mistaken for a large candy bowl, he blew out a cloud of smoke, looked me square in the eye and said, "There are two kinds of men in this world. Marines and men who will wonder all of their life what it must be like to be a Marine." Think he learned that in recruiter school?

    Semper Fi.

    Tomorrow and Monday are days of remembrance for those we lost. I can still see their faces and hear their voices. They are not just names on the Wall.
