I am a Corporal in the Marine Corps. Boot camp in Parris Island (side note was in same platoon as the new medal of honor recip Dakota Myers) Was stationed in Hawaii in 3/3 Lima co.

First deployment I was a m249 saw gunner in Garma Iraq of 07'. Half way through I was attached to scout sniper plt for a couple missions then attached to EOD for security for the remainder of the deployment. Of course I made a moto video of it.

Here's some motivation!
Btw If anyone is wondering why we r not wearing camo. It's because there was a brief period when the marine corps was looking into flame resistant camo (frog suits as they now are called) the only thing that was flame retardant that they had to offer us at the time was flight suits. That's what we wore for 90% of the deployment.

Use to be name, rank, and serial number. What changed? Use to earn 11 cents per hour defending our country, guess that changed too. Hazardous duty pay was something like 30 bucks extra per month, but they got most of that back in damaged uniforms.
