    Well, I don't know.
    Many a young man has suffered that plight and grown to be a better man in any service with, or with the bananas! I believe all that have served experienced pretty much the same feeling of excitement and fear at that very moment the apron strings were cut.
    Thank you for your service too.

    I'll have to agree with Cowboy on that one. No disrespect intended.

    I agree with Cowboy as well. No one but the Marines truly understand the yellow footprints at San Diego and Parris Island. There may be other footprints but they aren't the same. Semper Fi Marines.
