NAME AND RANK: USMC CPL W

Where did you serve? 2nd Battalion 4th Marines 1st Marine Division. Staioned at Camp Pendleton, CA (San Mateo). Fought in the Battle of Ramadi in Ramadi, Iraq. Served in Kuwait/Okinawa, Japan/Sasebo, Japan/Pohang, South Korea,/Guam/many other places, but can't remember?

What did I do? Infantry Rifleman/Mortarman 60mm. I got hurt while serving. Instead of getting out, I stayed in and worked as a postal clerk for the last few months of my contract.

Any stories? http://www.usatoday.com/news/world/iraq/2004-07-12-ramadi_x.htm

Was Cpt Kennedy (I think he's a Col now) still with 2/4 when you were there?

Yep, PJ Kennedy was our BC when we were in Iraq. He was a Lt.Col. at the time.

Pohang Korea was a blast. Did you guys did the ROK Marines mountain warfare school? That was pretty awesome. My favorite event there was getting 20 one dollar bills. The cab ride from camp rat-turd to town was $10 and normally a 20 minute ride. So well tell the cabbies that here us their fare and for every minute over 10 well throw out the window a dollar hence their tip shrinking. It's like real life crazy taxi.

We were not in Pohang for too long. We did do some training with the ROK Marines. We traded a bunch of stuff with them like cammies and all sorts of other stuff. Maybe it was just me, but did those guys seem pretty touchy feely to you? One time we were showing them how our mortars worked. We were all kind of standing around getting a class and I noticed a lot of the ROK Marines were holding hands. I don't think they were gay or anything, probably just their culture, but I'd say it was a little different to see that. Laughing

We spent 60 days in Korea. They where kinda wierd but not wierd as the Russian Naval Infantry and no where as cool as the Ukranian troops. Did you guys spent there long enough to qualify for your Korea Service Medal? Only medal with a dragon. Wich is pretty bad ass I tell my kids I got it for kicking a dragon in the nuts.

Yeah we did get it. Kicking a dragon in the nuts. Laughing That's great! I'm going to start telling people that's why I got it. I could also tell people my humanitarian medal is for mastering the judo chop.Laughing

Some of the coolest guys I met were the British Royal Marines. Funny guys.
