Many moons ago on this date, April 26, I left for Parris Island to earn the title.  Still wear it proudly.  Best decision I ever made.

DDG 109

November 17, 2010

ATLANTIC OCEAN (May 20, 2010) The Pre-Commissioning Unit (PCU) Jason Dunham (DDG 109) conducts sea trials in the Atlantic Ocean. Jason Dunham successfully completed a combined builder’s and acceptance "super trial" during four days at sea. The ship is in Ft. Lauderdale for her commissioning on Nov. 13. The ship is named after U.S. Marine Cpl. Jason Dunham, who was mortally wounded by insurgents in Iraq in April 2004 and posthumously received the Medal of Honor January 11, 2007.

No better friend, no worse enemy:

“As soon as the first stack of [Marines] made our way into the bridge, their hands were up, their weapons were down, they moved to their knees and they were compliant,” Martin said.

“At that point, they were pretty scared. One guy actually defecated himself. … He shit his pants. I don’t know if that can go on the news or not, but that actually happened.”

That could make for a helluva new verse in the Marine Corps Hymn!!!
