20 years ago today

I arrived at Parris Island and stood on those yellow footprints. Seems like yesterday. Man does time fly. I think my midlife crisis has officially begun :(

Yeah but you were 14 and in middle school

DennyBoii - Did you serve for 20 years?....

If so, why? And HOW? I have 200 more days in the military and I CAN NOT WAIT to get out.

I love what I do but hate the bullshit and politics of it all. I hate having my hand held like a child.

I admire those who manage to do 20, and am thankful, but it's not for me. Phone Post 3.0

Only did 4 years. The crazy thing is, I don't know why I got out. I loved it. My last unit was shitty. 0311 ground pounder

20 years ago today I was congratulating myself on what an awesome idea it was to cover the entire inside of our rental house worth cardboard, spray paint shit everywhere, hang black lights and have a huge house party.


It wasn't a good idea. Phone Post
