Because They Walk The Wall


When I joined the Marine Corps in 1987, there was no war going on.

Recruits today KNOW there is a fight. Marines are getting killed.

But they sign the dotted line anyway.

Not hard to tell who deserves more respect.

    Sir,

    My roommate and I just want to say thank you for the kind words. It's really motivating to hear good things like that!

    Respectfully,
    PFC Mankin

    I went to the TBS graduation yesterday and the General that was the guest speaker began his speech with, "We are a nation at war." Later, talking with some of the lieutenants, I learned that many of them are being deployed before March.
    Maybe even sooner than that.

    I'm proud to be a part of this family. Sure it's by a thread, but whatever. ;)

    And look at your skinny face, Viper! Ha!

    Mike's dress blues he got at graduation practically fit Joe, they're so small.

    Marines: glad to see you are tuning in. You humble me.

    Killjoy: you don't humble me. J/K. Please leave the LTs alone. You didn't sneak one home in your purse, did you?

    Laura: (finger on nose and pointing with other hand). You got Killjoy's number.

    And I was about a buck twenty back then, soaking wet. I was only 5 years older than my son is now. Wow, I think my hip just spontaneously exploded.

    LOL..yeah, but you'll forget all about your hip in the next twenty minutes or so...that short term memory is the first to go.

    Damn both of you. But your comments reminded me of the time I went to the ball with Brian and they wanted him to be on (what's it called?) Flag duty? He said "I can't, sir, if I leave my date alone for too long she'll leave with one of the Lts." Am I really that easy to figure out?

    And then there was the one Lt. who had the highest score on the PFT and well, why couldn't he come out in his boxers to show off the end result? I'm just asking...

    C, I am so going as your ~date~ for the next ~event~...
    And I'll bring a really big purse.
    ;)

    Just make sure that purse fits two.

    OK you two, OUT OF THE POOL!!!!

    Laura: What were we talking about? Oh yeah, memory...

    Killjoy: For the love of God, it's not "Flag Duty." It's Color Guard. You're killing me.
