Welcome, my dad doesnt really want me to be a Marine. But he doesnt try too hard to stop me. So, he finally just told me to learn a trade instead of being a grunt.

Thanks..

We have a few Field Grade officers in here already, but not all of them wants to reveal their ranks (of different reasons), so I can understand that you were a bit cautious at first..

That's okay 03USMC. You _are_my buddy. I'm retired and although I appreciate the courtesy. I appreciate the company even more. Respect for the rank only is demanded. Respect for the individual is earned. I've always felt that way. I am friends, I should say with more than a few fellow retirees of various ranks. One of whom was my CO many long years ago and he retired as a major general. He's like another father to me. Comradeship post service is okay in my book. No problem of fraternization could arise. Since you and I are both no longer in the service. I believe it acceptable but if I'm wrong in that assumption one of the other field grades can tell me so. This is why I didn't want to reveal my rank at first. I wanted to get to know folks for who they are without our roles already pre-decided. BTW, my dad was a Marine staff sergeant and I called _him_ sir.
