    Rides to our new playground!! 

    The only drawback is being shot off the pointy end of the ship.

    OHH RA! Semper Fi Brothers!

    A ride is the second-best thing the Navy gave the Marines

    The best thing they were given was a Navy Corpsman!

    My best half (not my wife) is a Marine!


    I like Elmer Keith; I married his daughter :wink:
