Episode 51: My Military Story Part 2 – MEPS
The Question of the Week
I keep getting asked about North Korea. What is happening and what should we do? Why haven’t we done anything. Can a missile hit us from North Korea? I think we should prepared to take action, but I want to have the assurance that everything has been tried to reign in North Korea before one American boot hits the ground. I think we should all be watching this closely.
This is Part Two of my Military Story. I simply talk about my military experience and some of the things that happened to me while I was in the Marine Corps. I did MEPS in Shreveport, LA. MEPS is where you are processed for joining the service. MEPS was strange and quick all at the same time. I forgot to say that MEPS is where I take the oath of service.
Everyone goes through MEPS, but no one really talks about their experience. MEPS takes a day and maybe it is so brief that most people forget that day.
I wanted to talk about it because it is an important part of being in the military.
The Complaint Department
POG and GRUNT weren’t happy about GLOCK making a push to have their handgun re-considered for the M9 Beretta replacement. I can understand why Glock is pushing hard on this, but I think they are out of luck.
Unit Shout Out
Shout out this week goes out to the German Teacher who spotted a kindegartner’s show and tell as a bomb, and acted accordingly. German Child bring WWII Bomb to Class
The German police were able to properly dispose of the bomb and no one was hurt. Bombs that are 60+ years old can still pose a danger if they are intact and haven’t been damaged. Good job to all involved
I have a friend who has been a long supporter of Veterans and Military. Janet has also been a great support for Oscar Mike Radio. Lilly and Jack wanted to raise money for St. Jude’s hospital in Memphis, Tennessee instead of going on vacation.
I am working with Janet on doing something to help out this cause. In the meantime, check out the page – Jack and Lilly’s Fundraiser Page for St Jude’s Hospital
