    Today is Memorial Day 2021. I’m drinking my coffee right now, looking at my lowered flag, and getting ready to step off to the VFW post to march with the color guard.

    Before I do, I just wanted to check in as the new guy here. I served in the Marine Corps from 6/2002- 10/2008 as an Aviation Ordnanceman. I was with F/A-18’s my first 4 years and finished up with CH-53E. I deployed to Iraq during “the surge” from the fall of 2006- spring of 2007 with HMH-465. I earned both my gold and combat wings, and held the secondary mos as an Enlisted Aircrew. I’m a life member of the VFW and now a member of the USMC Combat Helicopter Assn.

    More importantly; if you’re here reading this message, thanks for your service and I am glad you made it home safe. Let’s honor our sisters and brothers who didn’t. Semper Fi.
