I always have mixed emotions about Veterans Day.

To have served onboard a Los Angeles class attack submarine was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The schooling and camaraderie can't be beat.

However, my trauma was done to me aboard another command in the Navy. And then to have that abuse further perpetrated by an uncaring Naval Medical Center caused raw emotions that still have yet to heal.

Thank you, Joel, for this post.

Brian

Joel,

Thank You.

The four years that I served my country in the USMC.
Were some of the most rewarding times of my life.
I learned so much about the world and myself.
I just found out that the man who was the Commandant of the Marine Corps(Gen. Robert H Barrows) during the time I served died on Oct 30,2008.
I Felt as if I had lost a family member. Which he was.

Once a Marine always a Marine.

To Gen. Barrows "Semper Fidelis"

Mike
