    USMC Gunny Sgt (E-7), 1963-83. 20 and a couple months. Worked in Intelligence my entire career. Turned down E-8 to retire and to go back to college. (The promotion board really wanted to keep me in, I didn't even put in my "paper work" for the promotion board. LOL! I almost took the "bait"!)

    Two tours Nam. ('65-67, 72), Dom Rep ('64).

    Did time on USS's Pokono, Blue Ridge, Providence, Newport News, Iwo Jima, Ponce.

    Been in, around and through some 20 countries in my travels. It was a "good" time. (My ex-wife didn't think so.) So I married another Marine (Female, for those of you who might think that I "didn't tell") and we have done well together for nearly 30 years now.

    Like most things that have been "en passant" in my life, I never looked back after I burned my bridges.

    Fanatics of any sort are dangerous! -GG-
    Which part of "... shall NOT be infringed..." confuses you?
    Well now, aren't WE a pair, Raggedy Man? (Thunderdome)

    I served on Cruisers and Destroyers operating and maintaining electronic equipment as a Fire Control Technician (Guns and missiles). After I achieved Senior Chief Petty Officer (E8), I was commissioned as a CWO2 (W2). After 32 years of active and reserve service, I retired as a CWO4 (W4). I am a veteran of the Cuban Missile Blockade, Vietnam, and Desert Shield / Desert Storm service. In retirement, I participate in military funerals from time to time.
    I use a .45 acp because they don't make a 46!
