The picture of courage is often painted in active, heroic, dramatic and easily recognizable colors. It's John Wayne on Guadalcanal, or the desperate Marines on Betio, or the firefighters trudging up the stairways of the Twin Towers nearly 13 years ago. It's all of those, and nearer and dearer as well. It's an old friend nodding his recognition of the doctor's clear statement of his prospects for ever walking again. Of his reaffirmation through a firm jaw later to close friends that he does intend to walk again and to sit with his dog on his back porch. Or his delight when we remember that we can watch Pulp Fiction on the iPad and he smiles broadly. This isn't the denial of reality, it's the acceptance of it and the determination to adapt and overcome. Remarkable to return to that some 49 years after he first learned that so near to us here in Savannah, at Parris Island. You can almost hear his DI yelling at him to get off his lazy *** and move or die. He doesn't intend to stay here on his lazy as ...

Today I took one of the biggest steps in my life. I swore into the United States Marine Corps and I couldn't be more excited. Thanks to those who supported me while making this life changing decision. I enlisted into the Reserves so that I could still work at my job with the District of Columbia Fire Department. This is something that I've always wanted to do but never had the chance after becoming a fireman. I figured this would be my last chance. I leave for boot camp in Parris Island, SC on January 5th where I'll hopefully earn the title of a United States Marine.
In January of 2005 my "baby" brother James joined the Marine Corps. (He's 20 years younger than I, hence the use of the term "baby".) Shortly thereafter, I began to display The Blue Star Flag. In August of 2009, my son Kinley joined The Corps, as well. In fact, Jim was processing out at Camp Lejeune, NC while I was watching my son graduate basic training at Parris Island, SC. As of 5:01 PM CDT today, for the first time in over nine years, I am not displaying a Blue Star Banner. The 3'x5' flag in the front window of the house is coming down, the WWI era framed Blue Star next to my front door is coming down, and the Blue Star sticker on the back of my car is coming off. Kinley just began his terminal leave, which will end his active service with The Corps. Semper Fi, Marine! Job well done! WELCOME TO THE 1s CIV DIV!
So excited to get a letter from my niece, Lauren Miller, who is at Marine Boot Camp at Parris Island. Was glad to hear that she is enjoying it. The funniest thing she said was that boot camp reminded her of "an angry summer camp". Go get em, Lauren! I am so proud of you :0)
My last day as a pmi was today and to put it best...bitter sweet. I done what i can to influence these young recruits some of which are marines now. I trained and qualified 1,106 recruits in Marine Corps marksmanship ending with a 94.40 qualification percentage. I pushed 19 platoons of the young minds in hopes that they will one day use the knowledge and skills that i instilled in them. Much thanks to all my brothers here at parris island. I enjoyed my time here but its time to move on. This chapter of my career is over, but where one ends another begins. I have made friends down here i will have for the rest of life and made memories i will have till the day i die. Now time to finalize plans for home and enjoy the weekend before the long journey to Missouri and then to North Carolina.

After 12 weeks of taxing trials and tough training, the recruits of Bravo Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, stood hours away from earning their places in the Corps as they wrapped up the last few events of the Crucible on Parris Island, S.C. The recruits trained on the island for nearly three months under the watchful eyes of their Drill Instructors, learning the importance of teamwork, integrity, fitness and commitment to excellence. The recruits proved themselves worthy of bearing the title U.S. Marine only after completing the 54-hour culminating event June 12-14, 2014. Bravo Company is scheduled to graduate June 20, 2014.

In early 1943 a young PFC George H. Mulholland graduated from Parris Island Recruit Depot ... he spent 25 years devoting himself to God, Country and Corps ... he provided an adventureous life for his family filled with the unique opportunities of the military family lifestyle ... he had THE PERFECT MARINE WIFE who had more than ample ability to keep order in his absence each time he was deployed ... a young Marine who grew and developed into the ideal SgtMaj who represented The United States of America as he was introduced to British Royalty. He was a Marine until the very end. Once a Marine, Always a Marine. He was a great man, he was my father.

WHY DO I FEEL THIS WAY AND HOW LONG DOES THE TRANSITION TAKE OR DO YOU EVER TRANSITION? I apologize if this is the wrong place to post this but I am in a pretty dark place right now and I don't have anyone to talk to about this personally. I wanted to ask all of my Marine Corps brothers and sisters a serious question but before I do, let me explain a little about me and my situation. I joined the Corps in 1998 right out of high school, attended Parris Island and from there headed to good ole Camp Lejeune where I would serve all of my active duty time. I did my first 4 years while being married to my high school sweetheart who was not happy being a Marine wife. I never knew I would become a Marine as I was a football player with dreams of playing college ball and then becoming a college coach. I made a deal to her that for the first 4 she could do whatever while figuring out life wise what she wanted to do whether it was, go to college, get vocational training, start a business, etc, and if at the end of t ...

My son started his career as a Marine yesterday as he arrived at the Marine Depot at Parris Island last night. I received the 1 call I will receive instructing me that he arrived safely @ 12:47AM this morning. He was very stressed, the call is scripted and lasted 2-3 seconds with a Drill Instructor screaming at him and other recruits. The next 72 hours will be very rough, please pray for him by name Timothy Wade daily. Thank you.

The Master Chief Petty Officer and the Master Gunnery Sergeant Two old friends, one a Marine and one a Sailor meet in a bar one day (I know it may be hard to imagine either a Sailor or a Marine being in a bar ? but hear the tale). They began to discuss which of them had had the more difficult and dangerous 30 year career. The retired Marine Master Gunnery Sergeant begins: ?I graduated from High School, the next morning I was on the train for Parris Island, South Carolina. Following Boot Camp I found myself in a Regiment assigned to the Iwo Jima assault. With my fellow Marines we fought our way to the top of Mount Suribachi. ?In Korea I was with ?Chesty? Puller at Inchon, then we fought our way toward the Yalu River. In the cold Korean winter we fought at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir, ?I ended my career after Viet Nam where I spent 3 months in the Battle of Khe Sanh after stomping through endless rice paddies.?

I came across this on YOUTUBE. 22 years ago I was were these young men are young, dumb and didn't know $hit. On November 2, 1992 I was in Parris Island, South Carolina giving my soul to God and my a$$ to the Marine Corps. This right here is a world class oh $hit moment. I send this out to all of my fellow Devil Dogs who who survived *** and went on to becomeUnited States Marines. Special shouts out to Platoon 2012 Hotel Company November 2, 1992 - January 29, 1993. Semper Fidelis and remember Once a Marine Always a Marine.
Dear Mr. Morgan (now, of course, you are Bob), I could never better express to you all that my incredible fellow bandsmen/women have said so eloquently and poignantly on these pages, about what you have meant to us, to the band, to the school and to the City of Clifton. So I won'y try. Maybe I'll give it a huge "DITTO" and leave you with one story. In my 55 years, I have had the highest privilege of belonging to two of the greatest organizations/institutions in the world (and I don't think I'm exaggerating). The first was the Clifton High School Mustang Marching Band ("The Show Band of the Northeast") and the second was the United States Marine Corps. You, my band family/friends/parents and the myriad of experiences I had during the three years I was a bandsman ('73-'76) prepared me for what lay ahead, Parris Island and the USMC. Just one for instance: I was identified early-on in boot camp as a recruit who knew how to march! It may seem odd, but that lead to me being appointed a squad leader, and g ...

"HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY" to all my fellow Marines and Soldiers who served and are serving this great country of the United States of America. I served from 1970 to 1976 beginning at Parris Island, South Carolina and ending with Marine Aerial Refueling Transport Squardon VMGR-252, 2nd MAW, Cherry Point, North Carolina. Thank you for your service! May God richly bless you and God bless, save, defend and restore the United States of America and make it a beacon of light and hope in a dark world. May we continue to proclaim the good news of Jesus Christ into all the world as a witness unto all nations until He returns! I would enjoy hearing from any of you who served. OORAH!!! "Oorah was originally a Comanche war-cry that meant "All-right" or "Lets go!" in the Comanche language". Adopted by the United States Marines in 1953.

12 years ago today was my ship date to Parris Island, SC. Where u at Platoon 1058 Delta Company 1st BN!!!
Headed to Parris Island SC, tonight to see PFC Tim Charron graduate from Marine boot camp and then bring him home. So happy you have realized part of your dream. So proud of you. Congratulations Marine. Going with Lynn Gilmore Mary Stewart and Joshua Callahan . Love you T.J.
On our way to Parris Island with Jacob Parmenter. So excited!!!
Two years ago today was what I would consider the beginning to one of the greatest things that ever happened to me and my parents would probably consider it one of the toughest days they had in along time. My parents supported me whole hearted through all the hugs and tears before I stepped on that plane for boot camp. I was scared, lost, sad, happy, excited, and ready to start a new chapter in my chaotic life. Never for a second did I think I would haunted graduated boot camp, bought my first truck, returned to the island, have surgery, be fighting with everything I have to stay in the Marine Corps and still two years later be on parris island. It's been a rough journey with highs and lows, ups and Downs, laughter and tears not only for me but for my parents as well. Never once have they ever doubted me. I have met some of the greatest people, the best mentors, the greatest leaders, the strongest people, and the best friends I could ever ask for. This place has become home to me but in a few short days o ...
. "My brother Adam ships to Parris Island soon. Proud of him & YOU!
didn't help me either. 85 days of paradiise on Parris Island changes your outlook on "priviledge"
My public service announcement for the day.Parris Island is backed up down the bridge on the Port Royal side and past the Savannah Highway/Shell Point Plaza/ Ryan's Pizza side. I would def avoid that area if possible! Have a safe day!!
he's a good guy? I knew what clomid was for '90 I did steroids before going to Parris Island Does that mean I'm not a good guy?
Leaving for PARRIS ISLAND... bringing home my SON!!! Yea, he's a Marine and that's just wonderful but first and foremost, he's my SON and it's been a long 13 weeks!
I hate Parris Island traffic. Sometimes they flow and most times they don't.
1 year ago from today I stepped on the yellow footprints of Parris Island to start the vigorous 13 weeks of training to earn the title a United States Marine. Happy 1st Anniversary Kilo Company!!
Off to Parris Island tomorrow earn the title Marine. Prayers are appreciated! I'll see y'all July 11th. Lord willing.

The Proud *** One Marine's Journey from Parris Island through the *** of Vietnam: The Proud *** ..
16 years ago this week, I vacationed on Parris Island SC, for 3 months. Seems like just a few Summers ago.
I get nervous just thinking about Parris Island.
This is some motivating stuff... My blood is pumping. Had to share.. Enjoy my friends... You can keep your Army khaki, You can keep your Navy blue, I have the World's best fighting man, To introduce to you His uniform is different, The best you've ever seen, The Germans called him "Devil Dog" His real name is "Marine." He was born on Parris Island, The place where God forgot. The sand is eighteen inches deep, The sun is blazing hot. He gets up every morning, Before the rising sun. He'll run a hundred miles and more, Before the day is done. He's deadly with a rifle, A bayonet made of steel. He took the Warrior's calling card, He's mastered how to kill. And when he gets to Heaven, St. Peter he will tell, One more Marine reporting, sir, I've spent my time in *** So listen, all you young girls, To what I have to say; Go find yourself a young Marine, To love you everyday. He'll hug you and he'll kiss you, And treat you like a queen, There is no better Fighting Man, The United States Marine
Next Monday I will be leaving for Parris Island to become a United States Marine!

Congratulations to those who graduated in the past few weeks ago, few days ago, and those who are going to graduate soon at the U.S. Marine Corps Recruit Depot San Diego and MCRD Parris Island.. They did great and well and ready to move on to the next training.
I've got a nervous habit and I drink too much

Today's sunset photo is from Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island S.C.
This is one of the "fun" things you do at Parris Island, except in 1966 we didn't have face masks and wore jock straps but no cups. Marines come in all shapes and sizes. At the time, I was 5' 9" and weighed about 155. My "opponent" was about 6' 2" and weighed around 220 or so. Scary! He charged me, I ducked and he hit me on the back of the head. I crawled between his legs, giving him a rap in the crotch on the way, and when he bent over, hit him over the head from behind. Time called. Ain't no such thing as a fair fight! :)
Graduation needs to hurry up so I can get my *** on Parris Island
Tomorrow is Aaron's 20th birthday. Last year he landed on Parris Island on his 19th birthday for the grueling 13 weeks of boot camp. He endured a lot. I hope he knows how proud of him I am. (I am also proud of Logan ) He graduated in Aug of last year from boot camp and then graduated in March from MP school.
I know! My brother said if he could be guaranteed K-9, he would be an MP. He ships to Parris Island in several months.
Parris Island, SC! & dude that's so sick you're gonna have the time of your life!

Due to some complications I am back early from MCRD Parris Island I am disappointed but glad to be a home.
Filed a claim with the VA for bladder cancer due to the polluted water from Lejeune. Filed in in June 2013 with all medical records. Today I get a package from the VA wanting the following info. How long I was at Lejeune, where did I stay (housing or on post) and what did I do when I was there. I looked thru some old papers and found copies of orders from Parris Island to Lejeune, Then orders from Lejeune to Pendelton, and copies of orders showing arrival at Pendelton. Total of about 40 days. Now to wait for someone to get around to processing this stuff.
