Take care of your Marines is not only a saying in the Marine Corps, it’s a way of life. Not only do we never leave Marines behind we need to fast forward and focus on those Marines that served, left and still need help.

April 1986, following an attack on American soldiers in a
Berlin disco, President Reagan ordered the bombing of Muammar
Qaddafi's terrorist camps in Libya. My
duty was to fly over Libya and take photos recording the
damage our F-111's had inflicted. Qaddafi had established
a 'line of death,' a territorial marking across the Gulf of Sidra, swearing
to shoot down any intruder that crossed the boundary. On the morning of
April 15, I rocketed past the line at 2,125 mph.
Let's show Press and Tosh - and everyone else - that we still believe in this country and our National Anthem.
I have done way too much time away from those I love and have seen
way to many give all in a third world war torn shit hole country for you to throw some quote you read about your first amendment rights and
tell me our country sucks and how we should strive to be more like communists and the
you understood what communism was, you would hope, you would pray on your knees
that we would some day become communist.” – Jane Fonda
There are endless opportunities out there for YOU! Its what America was built on. You can make a difference. You can help someone make a difference. You are the difference. How great can you be?
Many people go through life satisfied with what they are doing. Are you? If not, then change it. Who is holding you back. You may read off a long list but are they truly holding you back or are YOU holding yourself back because you don’t want to do what it takes to get where you really want to be. No one is holding you back, no one but yourself.
Make a difference, be that single person that makes a difference for someone, for America, for yourself.
If you think you can or cannot do it………………………..your right. It’s up to you!
Some of you may remember from some of my older posts that I would joke about “seeing Elvis” around Ramadi, Helmand province, Tarin Kowt, ya know all the places one might think Elvis may hang out. Sometimes I think I see him on runs when I PT but I think that’s for other reasons!
What about the public Elvis? He would be 77 years old this year. You say he is dead right? Well if he was alive or just “in” the public the following are a few items he may be involved with and doing.
