    Today while I was at work, I had to skip lunch. I was updating some stuff in the computer and the phone rang, another Marine in my shop pick up the phone and he told me that I had a phone call. I answered the phone and it was my best friend that I went to highschool with that was also a Marine, he told me that he was in Kuwait and will be coming back to North Carolina. He also told me that he just reenlisted and recieved his orders to report to MWSS 273, which is a unit on our base. So to sum up the story, my buddy Jeremry that I went to high school with is moving down to Beaufort, South Carolina, where I am stationed. I am still speachless because of all the places that he could of gone, he is coming to the same base that I am at.

    Military really is a small world. I saw this many times during my 14 years in the Navy! It never seemed to amaze me how often it happened though.

    Salute!

    That is a huge moral builder!! Good to have an old buddy to talk too. 3 weeks after arriving here, I ran smack dab right into my first Bn Commander. He is working on a civilian contract with the Iraqi Police. I was proud to see him here and he said he was pround me being here. Just to see someone I knew and know well is a great booster.
