  • I was never on any kind of sports team. I am 5'11" and when I went into bootcamp I was 220lbs of tub. I came out of bootcamp at a fit and trim 163lbs and you couldn't stop me. I ended up on the All Marine Judo team, went to the nationals, was meritoriously promoted while in the Marines, went through the first Gulf war and did 6 years before getting out.

    I don't say this to brag. I say it to say that if a person has the determination to do something, it can be done.

    I am very proud that I served.

    • I went thru boot camp in the Army and then their infantry training. (for the National Guard)

      Two years later I went thru the Air Force boot camp (active duty), which... compared to the Army training was essentially a paperwork drill.

      I say it to say that if a person has the determination to do something, it can be done.

      The reason I point out what I did was for point of reference.

      If you went thru the Marine boot camp sixty pounds overweight... and survived... you were most determined indeed!

      That is an accompli
