Did a Two Week Instructors school there recently. 26 in the class, two 1st Lt's, one 2nd Lt (Anphibs), Two Warrants, a Master Gunnery SGT (E9) and two Gunnery Sgt's (E7). The rest were a mix of Sgt's and Staff Sgt's. To say it reaffirmed my faith in Marines was... an understatement. We'd be in at 0730 each day, draw weapons and start in. End of Day, I'd head for the house and they would be.. Marines on Liberty. To say I got a chuckle out of it was putting it mildly. Half these kids will be in country in a couple of months and I am sure they will uphold the honor of the Force. But for now, They were just being Marines. God Bless You guys, Fair Winds and Following Seas.


  1. They ARE good kids aren't they? Glad the school went well, sorry we didn't get a chance to shoot.

  2. Wish I could have joined you guys. I inally got up the post of Barkley with the Hyper Dog toy you sent. Honestly, he's never taken to fetch before, it's more fetch, wander around, refuse to drop it, lose interest. I could not GET him to stop retreiving the tennis balls. Thanks so much from both of us.
