    Uncle Sam is trying to give your more cheese to risk your life for the war. They are also trying to add 2500 recruits per month.

    I am so glad I am no longer in the Marines.

    The marines only wants you to be a Grunt or 0311.

    Moreover, the military does not want to see any Black Men become officers in my opinion. I do not see them trying to recruit more black officers, only black enlisted solidiers.

    I take it you're over 50, blind, and paralyzed to be talking like that with THIS administration in office.

    They ain't letting nobody off the hook who ever did a tour.


    I know a cat who's 41 and got called up and is supposed to be shipping out sometime next month.

    I also was in the Army for 8 years. I got out, right after Desert Storm, luckily I was married to my Platoon Leader, and I didn't have to go. I knew then it was time for me to bamoose. Thank God I did, best decision I ever made.

    One of my boys claimed he got out by p*ssing in the bed.
    And told his cousin to do the same thing.

    But you know the ole saying: Once a Marine ALWAYS a Marine.

    Paris Island, 3rd Battalion, platoon 389...straight from there to college and then back to college again. You know, "if a mistake has not been learned the mistake will be repeated." Oh well, it beat the marines any day. In fact, I actually threatened my other three brothers that I would personally take their lives if they went into the military. Guess it worked. I was one sucker too many...thank goodness I had my own mind before they got to it and made it theirs.
