U.S. Marine Corps, 1983-1987. I was an intelligence specialist on active duty(1st, 3rd Marine Divisions) and a machine gunner in the Reserve, Wpns Plt., Co. F, 2nd Bn, 23rd Marines, from which my moniker is derived. My father was in the USMC in WWII and was wounded on Iwo Jima. I hope that one of my sons will also serve in the Corps, but that would be up to them. Semper Fi friends!
