USMC here. Did 6 years at Camp Pendleton, 3 years at MCAS Miramar, 1.5 years at 29 Palms and coming up on 3 years at MCLB Albany. Got orders back to Pendleton this summer.
I quoted Jester because I sailed to Iraq for OIF 1 and sailing next to our LPD was a no kidding Coast Guard Cutter as part of our ARG. Sounds to me like sailing to war would qualify you as military bud.
