    Howdy All,

    I'm new to this site, so here I am introducing myself. I will be 72 y/o this 5 June. Other than the fact that I am old, the following is about all you need to know. I am a United States Marine.

    ...'nuff said.

    Here is a marching song we used to sing:

    G/I beans and G/I gravy,
    Gee I wish I'd joined the Navy,
    4 square meals served every day,
    With the fleet you sail away,
    Left oh right oh lay-eft.

    Semper Fi, old man.

    Will you post frequently or do VA appointments get in the way?

    I have never been to the VA. as to posting often, we will see. I'm still taking the measure of this site.

    Welcome, young man! FYI, Divine.Wind was a Navy/Marine pilot and williepete was a naval aviator. They'll be here later to get some pointers.
