No, but my dad was a 1st Lt in The Corp during the Korean war and my grandfather was a "China Marine." He was lucky and got out of China about 6 months before the war started. He did end up in Guadalcanal and a few other garden spots before the war ended. He retired after the Korean War as a Master Sergeant.
I was very close to going in after high school in 1985, but the recruiter would not promise me the job I wanted right away. He said I should just sign up and that I would be able to get the job (crash crew) after I had been in a while. I told him that I knew I would more than likely remain in the infantry for my entire career and "no thanks." Sometimes, I wish I went in anyway. I ended up going back to school for another two years and then working on an ambulance in So Central LA.
So, six promotions to go then......that makes you an E-5?
