We have a member currently in Iraq/Kuwait - he goes by Chargerlipz. He occasionally posts from over there. Before he shipped over there he was a frequent poster and a really funny guy.

This forum is full of ex-servicemen. I was a Marine myself - early to mid fifties. I'd venture to say we have vets in here from every damn war over the last 60 years.

I attended the very first game in San Diego in 1961 and had season tickets until I was transferred to No. Ca. in the early eighties. I don't live in San Diego anymore, I'm retired and living in Oregon now but I still love the Bolts.

WAS A MARINE? I thought you could get the Marine out of the Corps, but not the Corps out of the Marine!

Working as a Contractor for the Marines here in Beaufort, SC. So I understand them better than most Army retardedees...errr..retiree's!

The saying is "once a Marine, always a Marine" and I've learned there is a lot of truth to that. I was honorably discharged in 1956 but an awful lot of what I learned back then (including a certain attitude) has stuck with me all these years.

Semper Fi right back to you!

Here's a strange one - I mentioned earlier in here that Chargerlipz is over in Iraq. He's another guy that got out of the Corps and later joined a National Guard unit in Hawaii. (I assume for some extra income). Shortly after he joined them the outfit was activated. He said the same thing, "it ain't the Corps".

Hate to let you all in on a little secret....The Modern Marine Corps isn't what it was. I was a Basic training DI for the Army about 7 years ago, and see the "Modern" Marine Corps is trained to the same standard now as we were training them then. BTW: I live and work in and around Parris Island, so I see it first hand.

I will agree, the Marines of Old were different. Welcome to the PC world!

Default Army Vet

I served 6 years in the army as a m1a1 mechanic. I was stationed at Ft. Irwin from 2000 to 2002. Now live in NW Reno. Also spent a year in Korea and 3 years at Ft.Carson,Co. Glad to hear from some former vets/Charger fans.
Born and raised in San Diego, grew up in North Park.
