I do not believe he was. It was about a month ago when I saw him claiming that he was a "marine" on a different thread. It has since been deleted, but he called me some not so nice things while he was at it.

Now I'm only a Poolee, but every Marine I have ever met or seen online spells Marine with a M, not a m. And I do mean every single one.

personally, i have never served one day in the military, but even i know that it's spelled Marine Corps!

i also know that Marines or soldiers don't have the luxury of picking or choosing which assignments, missions or operations they participate in.

my uncle "Chip" spent over 20 years in the Navy as a sailor. he spent a few years incountry in Vietnam in the "Brown Water Navy". he died several years ago, and though i did know growing up uncle Chip spent a good number of years in the Navy, i never knew until after he passed that he was even in Vietnam much less incountry. my mother didn't tell us till a couple of years after he had passed about some of the things he did while in the Navy all those years.

funny thing, when i was still in high school and trying to decide which branch to enlist in, my father was trying to get me to decide on the Air Force, uncle Chip was trying to persuade me to join the Navy, and my grandfather had been in the Army in WWII. i think i disappointed them all when i made the decision to try for the Marine Corps!

after i was rejected medically for the Marine Corps, i tried every other branch, along with the Coast Guard to no avail. none of them would clear me medically to enlist. i have very few regrets in life, but that is one of the few i do have.

That shouldn't be a regret Sir. You tried, and had medical issues. That is nothing to regret or be sorry for. Just by trying you did more than many in this country ever had, and if it wasn't for circumstances out of your control, you would have served.

My father served 22 years in the Air Force. He isn't very happy that I'm joining the Marine Corps, but I know that I wouldn't be happy in any other branch. Marines have so much pride and such a rich history, not to mention their brotherhood and loyalty to one another. I can't wait for my 13 week "vacation" My doctor is telling me that I'm about 3 weeks out from being completely medically cleared!

I'm going to the REAL Recruit Depot, Parris Island and hopefully I'll be leaving in July or August. I've been dealing with medical BS since January when I had a unexpected surgery. Then the surgeon screwed up and gave me some stuff to use for 2 and a half months to "keep the wound clean." Turns out that if you use the stuff for more than 7 days, it kills all of your tissue... 6 months later and I'm almost cleared.

I would appreciate any pointers you could give, even though I'm on the other coast. I'm sure that some things are similar.

Good luck son. As others here have told you,, you'll have a very big fan club here....with all the Service rivalry, remember, we're all on the same side. Let us know when your shipping out,..we will send you our best wishes on the Podcast...
Even though I'm retired Army, both sides of my Family have Marine connections. On Dad's side, both my Grandfather and my Great Uncle were WW1 Marines. On my mom's side, my uncle Steve was a Marine Officer( pilot) in both WW2 and the Korean....growing up, one of my closest friends' Dad was killed In 1971 while serving as a Marine Col. Of course my friend followed in his Dad's footsteps, first serving as an Enlisted & NCO, leaving as an E6, then went to college, and went back as an officer, leaving the Second time as a Capt., having served a total of 16 years(8 as an NCO and 8 as an officer)...

Picked up my copy this morning and was somewhat surprised the package contained both a blue ray and regular disc and was only $17.99.
Gonna save it until Sunday afternoon and pop up some Orville Redenbacher natural sea salt and butter popcorn and view it.
