Old Glory

Another year.

24 years ago, right now, I was "enjoying" my first day on Parris Island as a Marine recruit. We arrived by bus slightly after midnight. They kept us awake all night and all day our first day, then put us in our racks about 7pm or so as I recall. Rarely a year goes by that I don't think of these things on the 14th/15th of March.

Semper Fidelis.
