Hi. Thank you for including me as a member. I'm a doctor and a writer. I've joined to read most, learn some, and post little. My dad, uncle, aunt, and grandad have all served/are serving. I am humbled and proud of all of them. And although I am very much a civilian (My conflicts tend to be solved with a chat, a cup of tea, and a slice of brown sugar pound cake), I am grateful to all of you who protect and serve.

Reading your profile, I hope you do some good research and don't be afraid to ask some questions, as long as not OPSEC. I cannot stand reading a good novel, and then seeing so many discrepancies regarding SOF forces, tactics, the military in general. Sometimes, even by some great Authors like Tom Clancy or Clive Cussler, I ponder if they even bothered to do any research or consulting about SOF forces before writing about them in their books.

There is no finer Ranger unit than C/2/75(RGR).

First let me say that I am not a veteran but have spent 34 years providing health care to hundreds of veterans. I had 300 POW’s in my clinic that I saw on a regular basis for years. The history of my POW’s were 2 on the Bataan Death March, a pilot 6 years in VN who was in prison with John Mccain, several that survived in the German box cars, and numerous other places they were captured. I provided care for medical and psychiatric patients. I met some of the most interesting men and women in my career. I would meet their families and try to give support to them as well. It was amazing how some healed when they returned to the states. This was my life for many years, hoping I could help them make their lives better. Some of my patients were not in war zones but developed medical and /or mental health issues that needed care as well. Now closer to home, my father was an UDT in WWII. In the Pacific. I retired to care for my sick parents so they could spend their remaining time in their home. I am married and have grandchildren. I volunteer in their elementary school several days a week. Many of my patients had been seen by me when I was pregnant and when I told them I was going to be a grandmother, they started calling me Grandma so that was what I tried to teach the grandkids. The older grandchild started calling me Punkin, I guess because I called him punkin when I would pick him up. So that is what they call me as well as the kids in the elementary school, except they say Mrs. Punkin.

Welcome abaord Master Chief. We probably ran into each other sometime ago. I was on the "Last of the Bravos" @ VP-94, before going SAR.

A little advice before you ship, Marine is spelled with a capital "M". Good Luck.
