My neighbor's son in law's unit is imbedded with a batallion of Afghan soldiers somewhere in the mountains near Pakistan. He has a broken ankle and is waiting until his time is up to come back and have surgery. His wife and kids are waiting in Okinawa for his return sometime in August. Last time he saw his son he was only a week old. :) Prayers please for a good man and a good Marine Sgt.

Always have prayers for the men and women in uniform, extra one for the Corps and now one for your neighbor's son-in-law!

Okinawa - 3rd MarDiv?

I can't join any branch of the US Armed Forces due to a medical condition and also I don't want to miss ANY part of my son's life while he's growing up and also simple and plain, I'm not Military material, but if I would join, I would defiantly join the USMC. Best reputation for turning boys into men.

It was - blew out both knees in a training accident. Wanted to stay but was told no thanks. Got nice long zipper scars as a memento though. :cry:

Iraq twice, built alot of Sea Huts for the Marines, fixed up thier hooches and so on.

If you are in the Marines and don't know what a Seabee is then shame on you.
