I am retired from the US Army but I used to hang out with some Marines in Yokohama, Japan and I know first hand what great guys they are. I also went to a Marine Leadership School in Okinawa and learned a lot from them. I learned how to use and care for a M60 machine gun from them and used that training to teach a M60 course at an Army Basic Training Course at Fort Hood Texas in the mid 1960's. God Bless them. They make me proud to have served with them.
