Today to me marks the day to 50 years to the day after graduation from high school I left for Parris Island S.C. to begin the journey that made me a Marine something I've always worn as pride and always will "not so lean not so mean but always a MARINE SEMPER FI

Thank you for your service.

While not an American, I used to play American football with Marines stationed in Scotland, always had great respect for them, and man they were tough! They put me through hell to get me fit and strong to play the game, great times and hard work.

I'm not a Marine, but I fathered one. Semper Fi.


“Government has three primary functions. It should provide for military defense of the nation. It should enforce contracts between individuals. It should protect citizens from crimes against themselves or their property. When government-- in pursuit of good intentions tries to rearrange the economy, legislate morality, or help special interests, the cost come in inefficiency, lack of motivation, and loss of freedom. Government should be a referee, not an active player.” - Milton Friedman
