Being a squid I always question the validity of an outfit called the Marines. I seem to recall a Dept. of the ARMY, NAVY and AIRFORCE, but no dept. of the MARINES. Their paychecks seem to be written out by the Dept of the NAVY. I think these yahoos are just Navy guys in denial. They like to play dress up army guys. [:D][smash][:D] FLAME AWAY BOYS

Swedish Navy as a Sergeant 1/st Class, then I signed over to the Swedish Army to go to Bosnia (this was before and during the US intervension.) Had to take a cut in rank to plain Sergeant because I wasn't 100% pure army. Attached to the 1st US Armored Division as (what I like to refer to) as a "tour guide" once the US showed up.

I was Army 1984 - 1988. 9th Infantry Division, 99th (formerly 3rd) Support Battalion. Small arms repair. Also MI NG in 1988 and 1989. As a combat engineer I got to play with explosives, but the probing for land mines part didn't agree with me.

Ok, I'll take the BAIT! You're right, Lord, the USMC is a dept of the Navy, THE MEN'S Department! [:D] Whereabouts in TX are you, now? There's a Joint-Reserve Base in FT Worth, where the USMC allows the Navy, Air Force and Army to hang out with them. You might try to transfer there. Semper Fidelis, JC
