Hi, Corporal Shoe here. Active duty from Jun of 1994 through 1998.  Proud 6056 C-130 F/R Airframes mechanic.  My Marine Corps days are among the best days of my life.  I met great people, learned a lot about life, and saw things that I didn’t fully appreciate until I got a little older.  I thought I’d make a little space for some pictures of mine from those days, and introduce you to my old Devil Dog friends. (I have more photos, I’ll add to this when I get more time.)

Haircuts were not optional in the Marines.

Belly Flop from the seawall!

He probably thought this was a great idea. We sure did.

The accomodations in the Marines are luxurious to say the least.

While using it wasn't the best, at least I didn't have to carry the bags away!
