I wasn't a Marine, but my late father was (Korean War, an 81mm mortar gunner with Weapons Co., 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, 1st Marine Division, WIA).

Semper Fi.

Thanks to your Pa, Skunks.

I was almost a Marine. I kick myself regularly for allowing the wishes of others to influence me.

God bless 'em, one and all!

Andy, everyone has their purpose. Chill out.

Paul, (never to be one to pat myself on the back...nyuk), I took that "one regret" and tried to make sure that I would not leave this life with another one. So far, so good.

I'm chilled, my friend. I certainly understand that the dominoes fall the way they do.

But I'd have loved to find out at 18 if I was "man enough." It's a long story...
