Good luck with your chosen path! I think you will have some good company on it.

BTW, i'm glad this wasn't the "coming out of the closet" thread it looked like.

Gun confiscation will not happen in my lifetime.

"Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." C.S. Lewis

Congrats Shag. Best of luck to you. Don't take your moms reaction the wrong way...she has an eye for squiddies.

It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)

"A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government." - George Washington

Good luck. Just remember take it one day at a time. And make the best of it... it is and will be what you make it. And how much you put into it.... and. If you can't run 5 miles... you better start running!
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.

My mom cried when I left for the army too. It's no big deal that's what mothers do.

While unofficial at the current moment, I should be swearing in with the United States Marine Corps by the end of next week hopefully. Their reaction was better than expected. My dad was surprised it had taken me this long and asked why not navy (he's a navy officer) but fully supports me and my mom, while isn't fully supportive at the moment, understands and cried a lot. Overall though it was a lot better than I had thought
huge congrats Shag! wow! you gonna be a Jarhead!

seriously, that is great and just know you have some members here that are proud of the decision you made to serve your country.
