Semper Fi

Go read this
The thought of my dad lying there alone was more than I could stand. But what could I do from here?
I picked up the phone and called information for the Puyallup,Washington, Marine Corps recruiting station, where I joined the Marines ten years before. I thought that, if I could talk to a Marine and explain the situation, maybe one of them would visit my dad.
Those are not manly tears. Allergies - I've got allergies.

There were good times in the Corps and bad times. I was not the best Marine I could have been. I did not always like my fellow Marines.

But that bond ... it's there. Oh yes it is.
