For those that didn't read One Marines View back in 2004, I did a few deployments to Iraq & Afghanistan to sexy really nice places like Ramadi and Helmand Province. Not so fun places but hey, we are Marines and we go to the worst places. I began this blog back then. Limited to what I could "post" due to operational security but you can read some of my post while I was deployed to get the idea.
Every now and then as I enjoy a tasty C-Gar, a memory jumps into my head and I laugh and sometimes don't laugh as I remember it like yesterday. The smells, the heat the camaraderie. Below is one such post. We take America for granted. We take clean water, heat and safe neighborhoods for granted. Many here in the States don't realize how good we have it.
Just like in the below post, there were time Marines were injured to my left and right, how I'm here, still amazes me and I'm grateful for every day. Make the best of your situation, treat every day like its on purpose and a gift. Who knows, it may be the best day of your life. (thx wheezy)
Time for a C-Gar
