    I qualified at P.I. in 1972 with an M-14. The Drill instructors NEVER took off their campaign covers and talked nice. An arse kicking was mandatory once during each phase and when I sneezed in formation ended up going to one day motivation. Yes I ended up crawling in the moat. But, we definately are all brothers.

    Absolutely. I spent last November 10th visiting the Marine Corps Museum at Quantico.

    I asked about former or current because his question might be something from an era some of us might know better. I know I have a bit of catching up to do...PM sent

    No need for them now. However I am working on acquiring a set of MARPATs.

    And the Danner boots are freaking comfortable as all get out.

    Sorry Sharkie, but you are not a "Former" Marine. Either you are a Marine, or you're not. But to be PC about it, if you're out of the Corps, then you're a Marine Vet.

    A "Former" Marine, is one that was Dishonorably Discharged.

    Where were you stationed? We might know some of the same folks.

    To me, you're New Breed. To anyone who enlisted 9/01, you're the Old Breed.
