49 years ago on the late evening of 27 June, my journey started on the yellow footprints at MCRD, San Diego. Ended on 30 June, 1994.
I started the Journey 40 years ago, it was a good road.
I stood on yellow foot prints Dec 1977 in what seems like another lifetime. That journey ended Jan 2002 and the new crop of butter bars still wet behind the ears are the ones in charge now and it shows.
My journey began on July 9th, 2007 and ended June 28, 2015 but in the Army, field artillery.
All my brothers...
39 Years ago June 11th, reported to the MEPS in Newark, NJ then flew to RTC San Diego. Enjoyed my time and served with some great guys, but I punched out at 13 years. It was time to move on.
God Bless all of you that served. I never did, VN scared the hell out of me.
