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

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

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.

oh yeah no doubt my dad (who's retired navy) told me that in basic there will be all walks of life in one building and no matter what your differences are you all have each others backs. i'm looking forward to the camaraderie. just one of the things i'm looking forward to

Congratulations and good luck. From a fellow Veteran Military is still a noble act and selfless sacrifice. Best wishes and make us proud. Don't be a hero but don't be a coward either. Keep the car you will want it after AIT or presuming you can have it during latter phases of AIT then you can try to get home on a long weekend or Leave and drive it to your fisrt duty station.

I had my '93 Cougar XR7 before I went to boot camp and went to pick it up after MCT(Marine Combat Training) and my MOS school (Fort Leonard Wood). Got stationed at Camp Pendleton and enjoyed 1000 miles of driving every weekend. I put too many miles on that car and it was still kickin until I got in an accident. Ended up buying a '94 Mustang GT.
