    Happy Birthday Marines

    Happy birthday to all the fellow devildogs out there. 15 years ago today i was graduating from recruit depot san diego. I had a flight out of minneapolis to des moines. Iowa was getting hit by a terrible snowstorm so my mom couldn't make it to the airport to pick me so her friend was going to pickup me up. There was a problem somehow i got on the wrong flight headed to cedar rapids. All i had on was my dress uniform which included a short sleeve shirt and a few dollars in my pocket. Luckily a lady on the plane heard what happened to me and was a manager of a hotel and gave me a ride and put me up in a room for the night. Semper Fi

    "God has a hard on for Marines, because we kill everything we see. He plays His games, we play ours. To show our appreciation for so much power, we keep heaven packed with fresh souls. God was here before the Marine Corps, so you can give your heart to Jesus, but your a** belongs to the corps." Full Metal Jacket
