    Proud Marine Dad.

    Our son graduated Marine Corps boot last November and has spent the last 2 months at Camp Pendleton for infantry training. He just found out he got the MOS he wanted, Motor T Mechanic. His first choice was Aviation Electronics but that was closed so Motor T was his next choice. Tomorrow he ships to Camp Lejeune NC for 3 months of training then he hopes to get Okinawa as his duty station, he was told he will most likely get it. He looks forward to wrench on trucks/HMMWVs, he already knows to search H4O and ask questions if he gets stumped, lol.

    That's awesome! Wonder if he'll get to play with some of the newer toys coming up as well as the classic equipment. There are some neat vehicles coming out these days.
