USMC back from Iraq

Hello Everybody,
Just stumbled on your website today, I am a member of another 4x4 club.
Just wanted to say hello and let you know I just got back from Iraq 5 weeks ago. I have been in the Marines for 9 1/2 years. Noticed that some plugs were thinking about joining the military. I am here for any questions you might have.

Semper Fi!

Hello Everybody,
Well to answer all the questions I was asked I'll give you the down and dirty on my 10yr carrer as a Marine. I joined in 97' at 22 yrs old. I did four years pushin paper. Then went to the reserves as a AAV crewchief, thats the big thing that takes the troops from the ship to the shore, the one that got hit in Iraq last year by a IED and killed 14 Marines. I went to Iraq with SmallCraft company. Basically its a 40ft long boat with 2 turbo charged deasel engines making 880 hp. What we lacked in armor we made up for in firepower. We had everyhing from 7.62 gatlin guns, MK-19's, 249g's, and the 50. cal, we also carried AT-4's as well as our m-16's with granade launchers.Well I guess that about covers it. If there are any more questions feel free to ask.
Semper Fi !

I know you hear it a lot, but it's never enough. Thank you. My brother is currently serving at Paris Island in N.C. We haven't heard from him for a while because he's working 12-16 hour nights. The Marine Corps puts him through a lot of crap, but you know what? He is still as proud as the day he enlisted, and all of us back at home are proud too. Welcome home and God Bless.

Back in the day as A Navy man(BM3). I remember the LCAC's taking you guys from ship to shore. I was the Ramp Marshal in 1Alfa. That was a blast. I was on a Gator Ship(LSD43).
Glad to know your back home.
