A Happy Marine Corps Birthday Indeed

On the 230th Marine Corps Birthday, I was privileged to have coffee with my Senior Drill Instructor, now a retired Sergeant Major who works in the next building over. What an honor it was to sit and talk with the man who made me a Marine!!!

Then I called the Rose Garden DI, Chuck Taliano and talked to him for a bit.

Later, I called and talked to another one of my Drill Instructors, Top Garcia.

I called my best friend while I was in the Gulf War, Rob Doyle, who got out and became a doctor.

I called someone who has contact with R. Lee Ermey and asked him to give him a call for me to wish him a happy birthday.

I called a good friend who was in Monterey with me and later went to Iraq.

I TRIED to get in touch with my enlisted mentor but he was working. Damn pogue!

I went over to my first boss’s (as an Officer) house and had a couple of shots of Jim Beam.

We then called the other two of The Four Horsemen (Major Bash who is recruiting and LtCol Norquist who is in Lejuene).

    o!: your honesty is as freshing as your lack of discipline is disappointing.
