I am an exceedingly blessed man. I was raised in a Marine Corps family; both of my parents served proudly in the United States Marine Corps from my birth through my High School days. Although I chose NOT to join the Marines and instead went into the Navy, I would have never thought that being a Navy Hospital Corpsman would in fact RETURN me back to being stationed with and attached to the United States Marine Corps as a Fleet Marine Force Hospital Corpsman.

For me, I personally think I had the 'best of both worlds...' not only was I a United States Navy Hospital Corpsman, but I was also the 'Doc' to so many of my BROTHERS AND SISTERS in the United States Marine Corps. I was stationed with and assigned to the 'grunts' of the Marine Corps; the 6th, 10th and 8th Marines out of Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. When they went on their 'humps,' carrying 50+ pound Alice Packs, I carried mine right alongside them. I could go on and on about how much I LOVED my experiences as a Fleet Marine Force Hospital Corpsman stationed with the United States Marine Corps, but this is not the time nor place.

Although I personally am relatively new to the 'Genealogy game,' I grew up having an Uncle that has been doing this since I was in diapers; having seen so many of his publications he's had printed and disseminated throughout many of my families lineage brings me fond memories of those days.

Now that I'm "grown-and-older," I am much more appreciative of not only the importance of family, but the importance of actually RECORDING and passing down your ACCURATE family history.

For me, I find it simply AMAZING to see the 'hidden secrets' of my family, while I also find it to be one that makes me want to find out more. I look forward to following as many 'twists and turns' down the roadmap of my family's history.

By the way, after graduating from Medical School, I've RETURNED to active duty status U.S. Navy as a Family Practice Physician (LCDR). As i stated in the beginning, I am an exceedingly blessed man.
