    Happy birthday to my fellow US Marines out there in MacRumors land. Today we celebrate 239 years of making Marines and winning battles.

    When did you serve?

    I served from 1997 to 2001 in 2nd Battalion, 7th Marines, 1st Marine Division.

    Ah, well, no. No birthday ball for me. I'm too far away from any in my region. The last time I was at one was in Las Vegas while I was on active duty.

    Damn, even smaller world. We need one more for a fire team! I served 1994-1998. I went back as a civilian during 1999. I would love to 'walk up' cardiac hill. Lol. Not sure double time is an option for me now. When where you there?

    1997-2001. We very well may have passed by each other! I think I ran cardiac hill more than enough in my time there. I don't miss it too much. :p
