The second one came out in '94 and that is probably why none of us had seen it. Pictures of them are in the thread Brain fart deseet storm. I got out in '...

LMAO. Very good. That is what I like about this message board, everyone is a good sport. The most important thing is a mutual respect. Being Infantry I have the most for our Navy Corpsmen. Can you imagine being at the Navy recruiters office. You choose Corpsmen as an MOS because he told you most co...

I'll let you guys get away with it... This Time! I think that Intra-Service Rivalry is a good thing and keeps all working harder. But it does remind me of another joke: A Chief Petty Officer and a Marine Sgt. were both in the head at the urinals. The CPO finished first and went to the sink and start...

Send a photo copy of your DD214, and a letter to the HQ USMCR.
I had to do that. I got out 5 months after DS and some awards weren't approved for 8 months after the war.

I'll see if I can find the snail mail addy for you.

Although not directly involved in the fighting (we were tasked with the helo borne assault on Faylakah Island which was not needed) I have to say that I was extremely disappointed with this movie. It seems like more of a Chick-Flick (no offense intended) Was not at all impressed with the way this un...
