Once a Marine, Always a Marine

Sara walked off Quantico moments ago in her civvies with a piece of paper in her hand and a new smile on her face.  She is now headed home for a visit, behind the wheel of her new truck.

Much of the journey from DEP Poolee to E-6 is logged on this blog and now enters the phase of hindsight and memory.  With better than 13,500 visits by the time I was asked to make it private for security reasons, three years ago, this blog has been a great therapeutic experience.  Now it is public again with the hope that some parent, or friend, or aspiring Marine will find the information, though dated, of some help and perhaps even insightful.

"Goodnight 'Chesty!'  Wherever you are."
