High stress. I hated it in many ways. High unnecessary stress too. USMC has more than I care for in regards to unnecessary discipline type of policies but 8th & I was 10 times worse, at least. I did march for Reagan, Bush Sr, Gunny Hathcock, Arnold and many others though, that was great

No Honduras...... but over the years, just about every country in Central America, from Mexico to Panama, to Columbia , to Hati, has been invaded by the USA, using the USMC as a tool of military domination and control.

here is a link to the long history of American occupation of it's neighbours in the western hemisphere.
