    I Love The Corps But Am Not A Marine

    Former Marine

    I was a Marine from 2000-2004. Picked up CPL in the inactive reserve. Was part of 3d TSB SPT, Co 31st MEU, 35th I believe MSSG. Have been all over Asia and spent all time that wasn't school living in OKinawa. I wouldn't trade it for anything.
