Hey! My dad was there as of 1991!
Never served myself, but had a few in my family.
Dad: USMC 1969 to 1991. Paris Island, LeJeune, Pendleton, 29 Palms, LeJeune, 3 tours in Okinawa, and more TADs then I can count. He downplays it but, I am very proud of him. For the first 15 years of my life all I knew was life on and near the base. Bit of a change for us both when he retired.
The rest of the family: One cousin, Navy, 2 cousins, Army, 3 of my uncles, Air Force, 7 "brothers" and 3 "sisters" divided amongst all of the branches. I have 4 of them that are currently over in the sandbox, and I pray for the safe return of all of our men and women who are over there.
A sincear and heartfelt thank you to all of the veterans who post here. Thank you for keeping us all safe to enjoy the freedoms we have. It can never be said enough, and only those who serve and their families will ever know the true cost of freedom.
