Smile leaving for boot camp

ok everyone in 20 days I will be gone for boot camp. I was contemplating whether I should sell my Taurus or keep it. well the final verdict is that I am going to keep it haha. I know I haven't been on in a couple months but I am back for a few more weeks. hope everyone is doing well

Good luck with boot camp. By boot camp I presume you mean the Marine Corps, but if not what branch?

yeah I say a lot of marine lingo in front of my sergeants and they keep correcting me to have me say army lingo. I lived with my bro while he was a PMI at parris island and hung out with him and his buddies haha so I picked up on some stuff

As a Navy vet I can say that the Marines certainly have their own lingo, but they were polite enough whenever we gave them a ride. Best of luck.

It's SHO time!

Well whether nor not people say it, I do believe it is the most honorable thing a person can do. I joined because I can still see in my head the planes hitting the WTC buildings and them falling. Innocent lives lost for what, a message to the US? Gets under my skin to no other. You will find no better brothers and sisters than the ones you have in the military. I trust my fellow Marines with whom I served more than my own family, to a point. They had my back when they barely even knew who I was and I had Thiers because we were all there making the same sacrifice. I am proud to say I served this country and so should anyone else who has. Semper Fidelis and keep the faith when times are low.

Voluntary service is noble in itself and imparts honor on all who serve. There is no greater camaraderie to be found. More than anything else the self sacrifice, quality and integrity of the people with whom I served taught me that the love I have for my country is not misplaced.

It's SHO time!
