  • 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 accomplishment to be proud of, IMHO.
