My wife, a high school econ teacher, is at Parris Island this week with the Marines for a teacher workshop, where they're basically giving them an idea of what boot camp is like. She texted me this picture earlier today:
Way to go, auntiehill! It looks gorgeous....congrats!
Are they allowed to have loaded weapons while they're at Parris Island? I noticed the M4 carbine she's holding doesn't have an ammo clip. Do they actually get to fire any live ammunition?
And as I posted the last pic, she sent me another!
Yes, they do actually get to fire some live ammo!
Ah, the SMAW rocket launcher. I think Bofors in Sweden manufactures those for the U.S. military under contract. If it's not Swedish then it's Israeli, but it's definitely an imported system.
I'm finally in Phoenix Arizonia, here for business.

Saw this dump truck on the way to work this morning. Even the graffiti in this city is geeky!

Once again, enjoying my Cadbury Egg Latte, which is now on their menu as "The Roger."
You look like a member of the Romanov or Hanover dynasty. Milk that for all it's worth. Start spreading rumors about your bloodline.
At this point I'm just counting down the days until I'm allowed to trim that beastly thing. Less than two weeks to go!
In Soviet Russia, beard trims YOU...
We not only have little league going, but the major leagues as well.
A little Before and After for those of you following my Beard Journey.
You are too cute! I have to say I prefer being able to see your face, though.
I prefer somewhere in between.
^I think the "Before" will be more likely to get some.
