    I lost some friend in that hotel bombing. Hard to think about at times, like the traveling wall.

    I am a former Marine and think that is sad that it has taken almost 25 years to come up with something like this.

    Most people call us ex-marines but we were always taught that once a Marine always a Marine. If you were to quit catfishing it wouldbe kinda of like saying you are not an ex-catfisherman but a former catfisherman.
