My other Neice - USN Academy Cadet. Currently in the top 10% of her class (Her grandfather was in band of brothers and was the guy in the picture with Ike (next to #23))
My record follows, but big +1 for:
Younger Brother -- Currently in GER, but has been in every shithole except Somalia since 1988 (enlisted and warrant officer)
Middle Son -- Currently on USS Miami (crazy sub dude -- E-5 in 3 years)
Oldest Son -- out, but spent 5 years on the USS Truman (E-4) (Including "happy hour")
My service pales, but here goes:

Last Day 31 Oct 07 (not that I'm counting)!
I was 21B there because everyone was reclassed to do other jobs.
Our entire battalion was split up and sent to differnt parts of Iraq and Afghanistan. My group was sent to abu reclassed as a construction unit to build up the prison. Onother group was made security for road construction in afg. and the others were in ramadi as IED route clearance.
Another thing is that almost everyone at a time was reclassed at abu. When i first go there almost all the MP's were field artillery.
Meh... I came of age after Desert Storm and got out before Iraq so IMO all I did was wear a uniform and get a few tats.

Dislocated left knee and discharged after meritorious Corporal... major bummer... torn ALC, MCL and PCL and 3 meniscous tears... it hurt too!
I had aced the OSB and was looking forward to Quantico and getting a commission but... 2 surgeries and 8 months of rehab killed that plan.
Oh, I also did 5 years as a cadet in Civil Air Patrol and was a cadet Lt. Col and commander of my cadet squadron before I enlisted as an E1... the Army and AF was gonna give me E3 but I wanted to be a Marine so I took a "pay cut".

Ha! I was assigned to 14 MI Bn (TE) from 1990-1993 at Ft. Lewis. You guys were sister to our E Co. I remember an exercise where one of your guys was doing E&E out in South Rainier and Battalion decided he was lost, so sent us all out en masse to look for him.
Eventually, it took one of our guys tackling him to bring him back. ;-)
