Wow thanks man but I don't think I deserve that just for boot camp. Plenty of others have done way more but I will send ya an e-mail to get something set up at some point. I don't think I'll have enough time on my boot leave.

and yes it would be Marine not Soldier

You wanna see my itinerary?

AIT was the best memories for me.. I was 17, living in Monterey, CA for 7 months. All the Army girls want to corrupt the young guy (and they sure did).

Thanks Marine, my buddy actually is leaving my apt today to go back to base in Cali. He said the Marines was the best choice he ever made. Not going to lie, if I can't find work when I'm out of school, the military is still a very real option for me.
