Believe it or not, I’m a people person. Ha, I say that as Im communicating through a computer. However, I have a very good knack of reading people. It’s a gift I suppose but I can listen or talk to someone and I can tell when they are sincere, in pain, desperate or truly happy that it’s something you may have never experienced unless you have the same sort of people person reading Batman like skills.
There are some that boast about what they did in Iraq/Afg. There are those that don’t. There are those that give the military a bad name and then there are those not in the military that give the military a great name. Those are the ones that impress me. They are due attention for their efforts but they humbly show and remind others of those making a significant sacrifice. I was disappointed the US hockey team didn’t win gold because loosing sucks, however, Im glad guys like this are on our side and on our US team. Time for a C-Gar!
This year a portion of the proceeds from the calendar will go to the USMC Reconnaissance Foundation. The foundation provides assistance to wounded Reconnaissance Marines and Marine Reconnaissance families. Last year's calendar raised over $20,000 for charity. We hope to far exceed that amount this year.
It seems like yesterday. I was physically prepared as I ran my ass off to get ready but I had NO idea what awaited me. This is life for three long months. Three months of stress, physical fitness, and discipline that forms Marine recruits. Many will not understand these procedures but to move a large body of personnel quickly, they must be listening and ready to move. Doing things “by the numbers” is the bare bones basic way. It ensures everyone has what they are supposed to and makes sure Marines do things correctly. Not listening, gets Marines killed. Think your Monday was bad? Man, what a time. Time for a C-Gar
Motto Monday is there for you. For you, when you are unmotivated, frustrated, lazy, or tired. 99% of people quit within that one percent just before they succeed. You, one person can make a difference, you can change your own life or someone else’s. Show me someone who says the word “Cant” and I will show you a quitter. Be that one person to make a difference. Be a leader. You can do it. Its Monday, no, its Motto Monday. Do great things!!! Time for a C-Gar!
