    I remixed this one for the occasion, and am releasing it as a single. And yes, I am one of the guys in the video. Iraq Veteran, 2004.

    Seriously tho, I know y’all know what it’s like.

    In the late 90’s I was away on temporary active duty in the Army Guard. Nine months for training.

    I’d call home, evenings, from a pay phone, when we weren’t out in the field. My daughter who was very small would ask, every time, “when are you coming home?”. It weighed on my heart pretty heavily. Enough that it had to come out in song.

    Then in the 2000’s the opportunity for these photo op’s arrived. So I put it all together for the video. Thank you for checking it out

    Aren’t the Grateful Dead from Marin? Some people might count that as exotic!;)

    And there-in lies the rub. When your away for long stretches, you don’t have to go anywhere exotic to get heart-sick missing home. You just gotta be away. I think most people will experience that at some point in their lives.

    It's the United States Marine Corps birthday today. :bday:


    The official birthday of the United States Marine Corps is on 10 November 1775. That was the day when the Second Continental Congress established the Continental Marines with the following decree:[1]

    That two battalions of Marines be raised consisting of one Colonel, two lieutenant-colonels, two majors and other officers, as usual in other regiments; that they consist of an equal number of privates as with other battalions, that particular care be taken that no persons be appointed to offices, or enlisted into said battalions, but such as are good seamen, or so acquainted with maritime affairs as to be able to serve for and during the present war with Great Britain and the Colonies; unless dismissed by Congress; that they be distinguished by the names of the First and Second Battalions of Marines.

    Tun Tavern, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is regarded as the birthplace of the Corps as the location of the first Marines to enlist under Commandant Samuel Nicholas,[2][3][4] though it is disputed if a recruiting drive may have occurred earlier at Nicholas's family tavern, the Conestoga Waggon [sic].[5] When the Revolutionary War ended in 1783, the Continental Navy was disestablished, and with it, the Continental Marines. The Corps was re-established on 11 July 1798, when the act for establishing and organizing a Marine Corps was signed by President John Adams.

    SEMPER FI! :cheers:

    Freedom isnt free.
    Thank you guys so much for your service.

    i think we tend to forget about the service men and women's families.
    lets not forget them and the battles they go through as well.
    i do know that thats no what this thread is about but in the future
    please dont forget their personal hell as they send their sisters, brothers, husbands and wives, children,
    off to serve in the Armed Forces. its a battle of the mind and heart for which there is no training for.
