Response to 70sEraVet (Reply #12)

29. Pretty much the same story with me,

I graduated High School with minimal chance at a decent job in the town I grew up in, so I enlisted in the Marines, much to the chagrin of my father, and spent 35 years as a Combat Engineer operating heavy equipment except for a 2 year stint with the Marine Security Forces.

I have never once regretted my decision, except for the time spent away from my family.
