Semper Fi, Mac to you/Semper Fi, Mac to you ...

This morning, waiting for me in my mailbox, was a nice note from Dr. Demarche, reminding us all to wish the Corps a Happy Birthday.

Yes, indeedy.

I'd say more, but couldn't improve on the good Dr.'s first-rate post.

I learned many good things in the Marines, and I've recommended enlistment to several teen-aged males.

Next time some expert announces negative reinforcement isn't effective, force march her for 30 miles with a full pack, then tell her you'll do it again the very next time she accidentally repeats her claim. See how fast her behavior attenuates.

Nearly 40 years later, I can't remember my last telephone number, but I remember my rifle number from boot camp.
