After I get a few hours of sleep, I'll be back on the road again, headed for Parris Island to watch our grandson, Robert, graduate from Marine boot camp. Some of you who have watched him grow through several Southeast Shoots know that he probably aced the marksmanship part of the training! We're pretty proud of him!
And, to be honest about it, I'm very pleased in a quiet sort of way, that I may have had a small part in your Grandson's marksmanship training by introducing the two of you to the York Shoot and trading off to you the chunkgun which, I'm sure, has helped, aided and assisted the Boy in becoming a top-notch marksman! Please, as we have discussed, talk to the Boy about not taking unnecessary chances when he finds himself in a combat situation. Tell him that I said SEMPER FI! (and remind him that he needs to remember that the CORPS is a "projectile fired by the Navy"!) :tooth:
Every Marine a rifleman! I'll bet that young feller did good on all of it!

As to the Grandson, Semper Fi.
Although the Marine Corps is part of the dept of the Navy, its the mens dept. The lesser branches always try to equate.
