I nearly joined the Marines after the Middle East Crisis in the 50′s,in a fit of patriotic fervor, until an uncle who had landed with the Marines on Tarawa suggested I might want to reconsider. I took his advice, and have been eternally grateful. USN survival school at Werner Springs, CA and wandering around Saigon in 1972-73 were close enough to crawling through the mud!
