Never out of line to post an introduction. Welcome to LumberJocks, I think you’ll find this a great place to hang out and chat. There’s projects and expertise galore, and a whole bunch of really spiffy folks.

Welcome aboard, Sarge. We hope you enjoy your time here. Now, if you like Juniper, we live where it is the primary OB-noxious weed. It seems to be taking over the Owyhee Mountains here. It really can be a pretty wood but it is usually so full of sand that I won’t work it. I do like to burn it in the stove int he shop. I love the smell. Post some more projects and give us the benefit of your experiences.

Welcome EGA! The military wouldn’t have me, (hypertension). My daughter was in the Navy. I have one son currently in the Navy. My youngest son will be graduating in about 11 more days and then he, too, will be on his way to the Navy.

Welcome, Master Sergeant. Please ignore those who would call you “Sarge” or “Gunny”; or refer to the chow hall as the mess hall. They probably don’t know about covers, decks, bulkheads, hatches, racks, blouses, or Brasso either. And I would bet they couldn’t tell you the name of the worst mountain on Camp Pendleton!

Marine, You are not a former nothing. Everyone all over the world know”Once a Marine alway’s a Marine”!!
Some time go to www.togetherweserved.com and check it out. I have my profile there of the things I contributed to the Marine Corps in the twenty years I was in. You will find there that no one goes by the name of mister. No matter where the bones of those that have fallen are. whether properly buried or still under the sand on some beachhead, still Marines?? You bet. If you have any pictures of graduation from bootcamp, or the platoon book, go to yellowfootprints.com and get them posted. All those never in the Military are welcome there to check it out. Semper Fi there Corporal, Non-Commissioned Officer of the United States Marine Corps Thanks for your service and everyone that has been in the Military, think if of the things you contributed to this country to keep it recoginized world wide as “In God We Truse”.

I’ll definitely have to fork out the cash! I’ve already found my bunkmate in book camp. We went to Corps School together, and then Pharmacy Tech school together. Lost touch after that. Turns out he’s still in. What a trip!

Very cool. I was taught that Marines looked upon Corpsmen in a favorable light, but a couple of dealings recently had me wondering how accurate that was! Thanks for answering that for me EGA (and Yep…I know EXACTLY what EGA stands for ;)).

I’m sorry there Bob, my ole leg has mended back and I’m juneing around here making two good footprints again. Did your dad retire or just got tired of the war and got out? Dosen’t matter “Once a Marine, always a Marine”, cut and dry. Ever where he’s at right now, he’s still a Marine! I think him for his service, it has taken all who served and still doing the dirty work right now. Freedom is not free. Semper Fi!
