    Hello,
    I am a retired Marine, and Viet Nam combat vet. I was a rifle range coach while stationed at Yuma in 1968, prior to shipping out to Viet Nam, and practiced with the Base pistol team while in Yuma, too. I had all the free ammo I could possibly shoot at my disposal. I would shoot every day, then.
    I am interested in plinking, competitive bullseye pistol shooting and hunting the damned coyotes eating my livestock with an AR-15 and nightvision. We have a 100 yard shooting range on our ranch. Although I am old and can't see as well as I used to, I can still split the hair on a gnat's *** with my modified Savage 30-06 SPRG.
    Semper Fidelis.

    Thank you all for your kind sentiments and appreciation for my service to our country. I am proud to be a former Marine.

    Swoop, we had a good view of Marble Mountain from the top of Monkey Mountain!

    My best friend from college was in the Army stationed on top Marble Mountain.

    I would like to go to the village at the bottom of Marble mountain (I forget the name) to see what the village stone sculptors are making, these days. Probably just what they have been making for the last 1,000 years.

    There is now a huge luxury hotel (empty) on China Beach, where the Green Berets had their in-country R&R center with bathouse/whorehouse on base.
    Funny they left the whorehouse out of the TV show.....if they only knew.LOL
