Coming to the Home Stretch

Well it seems retirement is coming (1 year away) and we (meaning my family) need to start the transition.

Ask-A-Marine has been a wonderful joy of mine and there have been a few times where I have had to slow down and even stop providing help. I wish I could continue helping individuals with questions and concerns about their future in the Marine Corps but its time to pull back on my investment into this website. You see it was never really been about making money here, it was about sharing information and helping individuals become United States Marines or better Marines. Which is why its hard to put this in writing, yet it has to be done so that we as a community can tranisition together. 1 year out may not seem like a long time but in reality time moves quickly, we are already in April and I could swear New Years was just yesterday. Did you know that Ask-A-Marine has been on Tumblr for 5 years?

With that said, here’s our plan moving forward for now til ? - Ask-A-Marine will continue to post related content, depending on feedback and support, questions/answers will open back up, (again depending on feedback and support) we’ll begin building a legit website.

If you would like me to continue working this website, HERE’s YOUR CHANCE TO PROVE IT (click the link below) and help fund it so it can keep going. By the end of this month we’ll see where we stand and how to move forward.

Outstanding imagery Marines.
 
With adrenaline pumping through their blood, recruits of Fox Company, 2nd Recruit Training Battalion, put their bayonet training to use Aug. 11, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits fight with pugil sticks, which represent rifles with attached bayonets, to simulate a close encounter with an enemy. Bayonet training is part of the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program, which combines hand-to-hand combat skills with mental discipline and character development to help transform recruits into physically and morally sound warriors. Fox Company is scheduled to graduate Oct. 24, 2014. (Photos by Lance Cpl. Vaniah Temple)

Marines are noted for their proud and confident nature. Recruits of Alpha Company, 1st Recruit Training Battalion, proved they were undaunted by the Confidence Course’s physically challenging obstacles Sept. 5, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. Recruits tackled, scaled and weaved their way through the 15 various obstacles on the course, meant to increase their self-confidence. Alpha Company is scheduled to graduate Sept. 19, 2014. (Photos by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)

Fantastic imagery and poetry - something to get you over hump day.
Their last day in the desert their last day in this sand, I hope they never go back To that tragic barren land, Many hot days  And many moons have passed,… - Tyrus Miller - Google+

Ooh Rah!
 
Recruits of Kilo Company, 3rd Recruit Training Battalion, learned to navigate and communicate in a simulated combat environment Oct. 7, 2014, on Parris Island, S.C. During Basic Warrior Training, recruits hone newfound tactical skills by crawling under, jumping over and weaving their way through battlefield obstacles on a combat training course. These skills will be broadened after boot camp during follow-on training at Camp Lejeune, N.C. Kilo Company is scheduled to graduate Oct. 31, 2014. (Photos by Cpl. Caitlin Brink)

“When we receive radio communications from Marines on the ground and when it comes across with explosions and rounds whizzing by in the back ground, we get a perspective of how important our job is to support them.” http://ow.ly/BCgTX
