In the Corps I enjoyed some of
the best times of my life. Sure, it wasn't all fun...but what is? I have now
been out for over six years and in my personal experience I can tell you that I
still have not found any other job that offers the challenges, esprit de corps,
and overall fun that I found in the Marine Corps.
Where are all of my Fleet Marine friends?
I would really like to hear from anyone who knew me during my tour. I
graduated from Platoon 3098, 3rd Battalion, I Company, Parris Island on December
5th, 1986. Drill Instructors were Sgt McCray, Sgt Kirby, and Sgt McGovern. After
boot camp I went to Naval Air Station Millington, Tennessee for Aviation
Ordnance training. After that, in April 1987, I took a train to MCAS Yuma (with
my reluctant travel companion and drinking buddy Glenn B.) for on-the-job
training and more school. In August 1987, I PCS'd to MCAS Tustin and was
assigned to H&MS-16 of MAG-16. I made good friends there as I did
everywhere, but have now lost contact with them all. Although I can remember
faces, I sometimes can't recall the names. Some names I do remember are Rusty
C., Mario S., Phillip B. I left Tustin in June 1988 headed for Marine Security
Guard school in Quantico, Virginia. If any of you jar-heads are out there,
please write to me.
And all my friends from MSG School?
Corey...are you out there? Remember Barney Fife, Beeker, and all the other

Here I will list some sites that I have visited and found to be interesting,
educational and enjoyable.
