This message may be funny but in reality that’s how the UN Works. When things were going bad in Rwanda; General Dallaire of the Canadian Army attached to the UN mission was calling the UN in New York after hours to try to get authorizations to bring forces in country to prevent the massacre that happened. The sad fact was that there was no-one in New York to take the calls on the crisis desk. The rest is history.

My Daughter in-law is an Army Recruiter in Fla. The truth is funnier than all the fabrications. When the family is all together the stories fly. Can you up this. It’s a lot of Fun.

lonely thankless job being a Marine recruiter but they have no peer when it comes to convincing a happy civilian that he is missing out on the romance of life buy not becoming one such as himself ! only after I moved a couple notches in rank did I agree with him , having private in front of your last name is not conductive to anything romantic in the corps

You should check out some of the stolen valor videos on YouTube. One woman walks into a recruiting center asking for a bus pass claiming to be a colonel. Was really kind of funny as the recruiter said, “You’re a colonel and you don’t have bus fare??” Or another in airport, when questioned stated that he was a Marine. Guy asked, “Why are you in an army uniform?” A Hispanic man who couldn’t state where he went to basic. One with EOD Patch that backed off and said,”I didn’t say I was EOD, I said DOD!”. It’s sad that people would do that, but at the same time, encouraging to think that y’all are so admired that others want to be you.

Thank you from Mr BNI, Robin, but unlike Veterans Day, today is for those who died in service to their country.

I remember a stop at Wake island …. on the way to Viet Nam …. there was a plane load of Marines in the terminal …. they were young, well groomed, well behaved, neatly uniformed and their brass belt buckles were shiny …. we were respectful as we knew they were headed for more difficult areas …. they were sober, serious and quietly intense ?

As a former Marine (1971-1977) I can totally relate to that whole message, especially the part about joining the Corps. But I would do it all over again in a heartbeat, because the Corps taught me discipline and teamwork, and I still have buddies that are on my speed dial list!

I was in-country from Mid 1971 to 1973, and went back for the fall of Saigon in 1975. Got wounded last day in country.

I hate long introductions on answer machines. But there is no doubt in mind I’d listen to this one!
God bless our heroes!
