    Marines doing that voodoo that we do so well (Post yours too)

    I'll check with a source but I would bet the new Blue Diamond CG is related to retired General Fulford. Or maybe it's a coincidence. https://www.ocregister.com/2024/07/09/1st-marine-division-at-camp-pendleton-gets-new-leader-salutes-outgoing-commander/

    life after getting an academic degree?

    Much respect, Chief. Your rise through the LE ranks has provided an education that can't be learned in a classroom. I can't imagine the stress and responsibility felt by a big city police chief in today's environment. Teaching in public education is a battlefield in its own right but I've got it...

    Transferring NROTC to Marine ROTC

    My son went to TBS 13 years ago and graduated near the top of the class. He fortunately didn’t get his top two choices but got his third. Combat Engineer. He’s had a good ride, been to a lot of places, served in a couple infantry officer billets which ticked off that community, knows most of the...

    Transferring NROTC to Marine ROTC

    To say it’s competitive is an understatement I bet. Surely a Marine will be here shortly to explain the spread load and other steps in assigning MOSs. As already stated, you have to want to be a Marine officer and whatever you get you get. I don’t know how to explain why the Marines don’t care...

    The Everything Drawer - Everyone has one, right? (post anything - within the rules)

    We left when the storm passed and drove through it across the county to our place. One of the hardest rains I've ever driven through. Going to get more tomorrow it sounds like.

    We had to wait 40 years for the second ship named in honor of a Marine Corps legend. There should always be a USS John Basilone in service...

    Will suffering a traumatic experience DQ me from the USNA?

    "Do not self-diagnose" One of the most valuable tips I've seen on this forum in my short time here.

    Transferring NROTC to Marine ROTC

    It looks like this is your first post telling us you were awarded a NROTC scholarship. Congratulations. I don't know if you can change from Navy to Marine Option but the Marines don't care what your major is. Have you looked at all the Marine officer MOSs? Which do you believe would have you...

    My YouTube Channel?

    Those are impressive numbers. I have three YouTube channels that scream for me to pay more attention to them. When my eldest grandson was 2-3 years old I wanted to start one with us two doing goofy stuff, playing with his ton of toys, and having him show off his knowledge of dinosaurs...

    Medical

    I’m not trying to sound like a wise guy here and am asking for educational purposes. Does eating two shrimp qualify as an oral challenge?

    rising freshman looking for advice!

    Hello @brainman the rising freshman. Once I got over my rising freshman/9th grader bias I read and reread your three posts. I must say, you write at the college level. Post grad level even. Good for you. I've been a National Honor Society reader five of the past nine years and your writing, use...

    Did a tiger cruise from Pearl to Kauai. Huge difference in the two islands. Fewer people of course and it just seemed more laid back. So beautiful they call it the Garden Isle.

    I was stationed there and one night called my uncle who lived there. We chatted for a few minutes and he asked where I was. Told him a bar on Spruill. He said, Don’t move, don’t go outside. I’m coming to get you. I found a different crowd and we went to the more upscale bars like Stonehenge and...

    The Everything Drawer - Everyone has one, right? (post anything - within the rules)

    With all the excitement on the boards yesterday I forgot to mention the anniversary of my son's commissioning. It was a nice affair at the museum 13 years ago. We were always and are still very close. We talk as often as possible and sometimes until we are blue in the face. One of my life's...

    Fidelity is Up and Obedience is Down

    It's PSYOP, no S. "I noticed that all of you are operating in some false bravado like you are some kind of super hero in this forum. Trust me, I've been around more than you. Think. Fallujah. Door. To. Door." You have no idea where I've been. "I've rumpled your false bravado for sure. I will...
