    Got discharged in August of 1967, went back to the machine shop I was working at before the Corp, worked night shift and went to college during the day. Used the GI bill for college funding.
    Graduated BS Electrical Engineering in four years. The Marine Corp taught me to work hard to be successful.
    Be a long time since the service.

    Birthplace of the Marines, November 10, 1775



    Me at Camp Pendleton, Ca. August 1968



    Just for some perspective, that's an M-14 in my hands. It looks small because of my size. At that time I was 6'7" tall and weighed 240-ish. At 70 years old, I'm still a little over 6'6" tall and weigh about the same or a little less. Now you know why my nickname has been "Treetop" all my adult life, LOL.

    Semper Fi and Happy Birthday to all of my Marine brothers, Treetop

    Hey SSGOldfart, my wife and son say that to me all the time.. BIL and I went to the VFW this afternoon, had a good time talking to some of the other CORP vets that were there.. Bob, funny thing is that we talked about all of the good times we had in Corp, not one "war story" ever came up.
