    Thank you for your service. I don't think there will be too many leathernecks here. Something about the military that just scares the everyday musician away from joining. Stuff like hair cuts and getting up early :p

    I got a tour of the Training facility in San Diego once that's as close as I got.


    What did you do while in, where did you all go?

    The OP would have been twelve, or thirteen years old when the US got out of Viet Nam.

    Former Devil Dog here. Semper FI. Marine Corps trained killing machine converted to pop/rock cover band bass player. Switched from an M-16 to a four string bass, standard issue.

    I did not do the math. My step dad was there and he is in his 60's but I always think of him as still in his 50's.

    I had actually planned to join the army. Being a history buff and wanting to be an army man since I was a wee lad I would have gone. Guess what derailed that?

    Yep the bass guitar! Dad left mom when I was 14, I think it was a guilt gift. I did not swing that kinda thing at any time before.

    The only former Marine is Lee Harvey Oswald.

    I've been out since 78 and (among other things) I still automatically lace my shoes/boots left over right.
