    Hehehe......I would have done my 20, a few years ago. My how time flies. Funny, how after all this time many of us think about how we should have stayed in.

    Yep, had I stayed in I would have 18 yrs, 1 month & 11 days time in service in the USMC. Only 22 1/2 months away from retirement.

    Just retired last year, I wouldn't change any of it. Love the experience, the comraderie, overseas duty and for being their on your side when **** hits the fan.

    Huh! I would'a been in 40 years last July if I'd stayed from my first go-'round.

    ...where have I been all my life?!?
