So I guess I'm supposed to introduce myself...

Well my name is pretty obvious. I'm a Marine, stationed at Camp Lejuene. Originally from Mississippi and I will be returning there in about a month as my contract comes to an end. Then I get to start my new career as a military contractor or better known as a mercenary.

I have a 2003 Ranger XLT, 4.0L, 5speed manual, extended cab. Currently I have a K&N cold air intake, Cooper STT M&S 265/75 R16, Low profile tool box, brush guard, and a bed liner.

My plans for it are to install a superlift, bigger tires, headers, exhaust, pulleys, lights, skid plates, line-x the bed and rocker panels and as much of the under carriage that I could.

Welcome and thanks for your service. I'm thinking of joining the Marines myself.

I have had recruiters from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines come to my highschool and talk to us kids. In my opinion, the only recruiter that seemed to be 100% honest was the Marine. He told me that it's not going to be easy at all, you're going to be tested, but it will all pay off. I talked to this guy for a good 45 minutes and everything he had to say, I was interested in. The only thing that is stopping me from joining up is that I also really want to be a Mechanical Engineer.

Just send me a PM and we can discuss the Corps and I will answer any questions you have about it. No sense in derailing this thread

One does something with communications. Not sure on the specifics, but he did just re-enlist so I'm not sure he's doing the same thing anyway. He's currently in Afghanistan.

Come to think of it the other is Army. 82nd Airborne Aviation Door Gunner at Fort Bragg.

Oh yeah. I dropped my pack when I got off the bird from afghanistan. Now I'm looking at a 6figure income to keep playing disposable hero, but it's on my own terms and not the Corps.

Nice. Enjoy your truck while you can then! No doubt, upgrade on your firearm selections.

Im purchasing an LWRC M6A3, 14.7" barrel. With silencer threading, 5.56 in about a month. But that's just the tip of the iceberg of the guns I plan to add to klmy collection.
