This site is still under construction. I am slowly adding pictures and information as I get the time. I served in the Marines from 1982 to 1991, and my eldest son (whom I am VERY proud of) is currently in the Navy.
The United States Marine Corp is a brotherhood unlike any other. Those that experience the change, quickly realize that it is for life. "Once a Marine, Always a Marine."
As a Cancer survivor (1990 & 1993), I can tell you from experience that the change is forever, and the internal strength that is gained, does and will guide you through your darkest days.
