And to let you know we can’t believe that it has been that long since she went off to Parris Island.

Nicki, Remember don’t hold back on that letter about the DI and his shitty attitude. Its not like she was getting married just once in her life. To quote Joe Bite-Me “This was a big Effen deal. And it still bothers me that they had to have a separate Ceremony for the females at a different location. Nothing says part… Read more »

Thanks, you guys! I completely agree with the whole separate ceremony thing. It’s ridiculous! I’m also in the process of composing a letter to MCRD, and I will definitely mention this. It was appalling! The female DI was actually appropriately shocked and appalled. The male NCO (not sure whether he was a DI, because he didn’t have his cover on)… Read more »

Nice! Monterey is a fun place to be and the linguists are a good group of people.

As I told my darling rugrat some years ago before she enlisted, Sarah will find there’s a shared bond between millions of people those who didn’t do a stint in the service will never know. Everything will look and seem different to Sarah now – even her old friends from the high school days. That’s not a bad thing but… Read more »

Nicki: as if I ever doubted she would graduate.

Please pass her my deepest respects and congratulations, and tell her that this grumpy old Aussie is proud of her.

As for the MCRD – to use an old phrase

“Write it on asbestos paper and sign it in blood.”

Boyfriend…or future hubby?

Just in case WordPress swallows my comment To our newest Marine. Didnt think you’d make it, did you? I knew you would. I never doubted it. Young lady, you now have two families of whom you can be absolutely and utterly proud. Your own, especially your mother who has been, and I believe always will be, a source of strength… Read more »

Oh good lord NO! LOL

Not that he’s not a nice guy. He is. He’s a sweetie. But they’re all of 18 years old, and it’s way too early to discuss that!

One small change: I meant for her alone as in she cant change what others do or say…she holds that standard, then she sets the example. As I am sure she will.

Re the MCRD: If you get a reply, I’d be interested to hear how that comes out….the guy that just “shrugged” deserves an asskicking,

My sister went to the LI in Monterey for her stint in Uncle Sam’s Flying Air Circus, she was a Radio Intercept operator. Long story. I had the pleasure to go to Lompoc/Vandyland for a “foot shot” of our Minot Minuteman missle back in ’76, so tell her to look for the Operational Test launches while she’s at Monterey (look… Read more »

Ooops! Sorry, darling! MCT is Marine Combat Training – it’s infantry training for non-infantry MOSs. It’s about a month in the field, shooting all kinds of shit, being dirty, cold and miserable.

DLI is the Defense Language Institute in Monterrey, CA..
