United States Marine Corps
Now your probably asking yourself why a Marine Corps page on a Jeep website. Good question... Well I have a pretty good response to that. Because I am today, and always will be a United States Marine. Other than my wife and 2 girls, there is nothing I am more Proud of.

I spent a total of 8 years in the Marine Corps... 4 Active Duty and 4 in the Reserves. I guess I put this page on here in hopes that someday a fellow Marine I served with will stumble onto my site and remember we served together and get in touch with me. Even though I have been out for quite a few years, not a day goes by I don't think about the Corps. Many things I would like to forget, but many more I will remember the rest of my life. Mainly my brothers...

While there are dozens more I knew and served with, this list of Marines were the guys I knew best. And if your name is on here, you better pick the phone up or send me over an email. I would love to know where life has taken you since our time in the Corps... Even if I don't have you listed here, please shoot me over an email. One reminder... There is no such thing as an ex-marine. We earned the Title and its a name we will always wear with Pride and Honor.

We'll Always Be Marines...
