Semper Fi........ Heros!!

Ya know....I'm getting sick and tired of people bashing our military! Go ahead and bash Bush...if you must....but leave our guys and gals who are putting their precious lives on the freaking line every FREAKING day ALONE!!
What is wrong with people? Sick twisted fucks!! Go find another country to live in.

Anyone, in my book, who serves their country in some sort of dedication to the betterment of mankind,whether it's being a fireman,policeman,paramedic,Marine,Army,Navy,Coast Guard, Doctors and Nurses even.....is a hero. I will say the ones who do it for little monetary gain are in a bit more of a hero status in my book.

I miss being in the Corp. I swear the hi-lite of my year was the Marine Corp Ball. It was so fun getting all dressed up and going out for some old fashioned 'pomp and circumstance'. I still get chills whenever I hear the Marine Corp Hymn. Oooooo the chills!!! I'll get Lovee to scan some of our old Ball pics and post them.....Talk about different hair styles!!!!!...Mine hardly changed. Ha

I don't really miss spit shining the boots and polishing the brass and the 'old style' utilities that had to be so heavily starched that they stood at attention by themselves. ;) In the old days we were so poor that whenever Lovee got promoted I would sew his chevrons on myself because we couldn't afford to have it done. I actually had a little side job, non paying of course, of doing that for other Marines who were in the same boat.
Like I said....Semper Fi Marines, Semper Fi

It irritates me, too, when people don't support our troops. I just don't get it.

P.S. Have you seen this:

Happy belated birthday to the Marine Corps - 11/10! My father always remembered my birthday because they're the same day.

The troops didn't do anything wrong, I agree. It was our president who started the war, not theirs. They're just doing their duty as an American.
