Ten Years Later

I attended a graduation at Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island. One of only two places in the world that makes Marines. After arriving, I realized that 10 years ago to the day I arrived here for bootcamp. So on my way off base I stopped by the barracks where I used to get destroyed to say hey to the Drill Instructors who are there now.

I only wish I could convey how bad ass and professional they are. Thank you for everything you do gentlemen and I appreciate the foundation you gave me.

Just when I thought they couldn’t get any better the Drill Instructors allowed me to speak to all six decks of their Marines who just “earned the title” by completing “the crucible” just days earlier.

Congratulations Marines. It was an honor and privilege to be able to spend time with you. Never forget that you can push yourself further, mentally and physically, than you can ever imagine. 

I felt like I needed to get slayed before taking a picture in front of the infamous silver doors…again.

“Through these portals pass prospects for America’s finest fighting force.” The only people to ever walk through them are United States Marine recruits.

    My son graduated from bootcamp Parris Island on March 29, 2019. It wasn’t until after we had already left to bring him home that day when I found out you were there also! I would have so loved to have met you and shook your hand, you are a true hero in my eyes! Thank you sir for your great service and sacrifice to our country. I can not wait to read your book!!

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using Movable-type asmr on a number of websites
    for about a year and am worried about switching to another
    platform. I have heard excellent things about blogengine.net.

    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress posts into it?

    Any kind of help would be really appreciated!

    tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop, just so she can be

    I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.

    But maybe you could a little more dating sites in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for
    only having one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
