Ten years ago....Ten year Anniversary

Gang- I don’t advertise it but back in 2004 I was in Afghanistan and came across the web site www.anysoldier.com. I quickly noticed that there were no Marines on in……..yet. As you can guess after a few emails and the great support by all at AnySoldier, they added this Marine.
