I served 20 plus years in the Marines as a Recon Marine. I joined the Marines while I was still in my Senior Year at Evans. I spent my last Summer before going to Parris Island working as a lifeguard at Wet-n-Wild chasing the girls and having fun surfing at New Smyrna. Those were some great years! However, the fun really started sometime after midnight, when myself and 90 other young kids who thought we knew exactly what we were getting into arrived at the Front Gate to Parris Island! Yes, Boot Camp Sucked but it didn't kill me. After Boot Camp, headed to North Carolina, then off to the west coast of California.
