I joined the Marine Corps on jan 24th 2005. My first duty station was in okinawa, japan whilei wasin okinawa I went on many ship rides to different countries for training. I traveled to guam, thialand, phillippines, korea, australia and indonesia. I even went to mount suribachi and stood there they raised out flag, i even have my dog tag wrapped around one of the crosses they have. After my 2 years in okinawa i was stationed at camp lejeune, nc where i spent my last 2 years! i did many training exercises then on feb 14th I landed on kandahar airfield in afghanistan. i spent 8months fighting which will be something that i will never forget for the rest of my life.
