    A marine recruiter told me years ago, "There is only 1 ex-marine, Lee Harvey Oswald."

    Well, one can be an ex-serviceman for the rest of their life, or a Marine for their whole life.

    There's only two ways you stop being a Marine. Death or dishonorable discharge.

    Went in June 59, as a 17 year old, turned 18 at Parris Island, platoon 242, the best thing I have ever done.

    I have great respect for Marines having seen them in action in Viet Nam in 68 & 69. But don't forget us old Army Rangers. Steve, D151 75th Ranger Regiment.
