    As some of you know my oldest son decided to follow in my footsteps and join the corps. He turned 17 in April and left for boot camp on July 16th. He graduates tomorrow and today was family day. It’s truly amazing to see life go full circle! Pics...

    Congrats, its funny all the guys i was in with that became lifers are now either an E6 or gunny.

    The west of the mississippi rule is crazy, Illinois is clearly closer to Parris Island, but instead you gotta travel double the miles to SD.
