Well, I’m back on base. That’s depressing in itself. I can definitely say I was ready to come back to California, but today we had to pull rifles out of the armory, and I could definitely have gone another month without touching one of those.
A lot of people have been asking me what path I chose to take regarding my last two years in the Marines. . I love being a Marine, but when my four years is done, I plan on moving on to something else.
Oh yeah, one more thing. I’d rather run my head through a wall then go to OCS to become an officer. No offense to them, but I have seen what they have to do in Iraq. It generally revolves around choosing what color chem-lite is best for putting in the heads or where the most tactical place to put a canteen on your gear is. No thanks.
