10 years... Feet at a 45, thumbs along your trouser seams! Face forward, ears open, eyeballs click! Aye Aye Sir!
It's funny what fate has in store for us sometimes. Things you felt so sure about that turn out much differently than you ever could have imagined. Life is full of dreams, but in reality is nothing more than a combination of choices and opinions. Choices based on opinions, and opinions based on choices. It's all the same in the end, you live with those choices as with the results of them.
These footprints changed my life forever, albeit not nearly in the way I had expected. They set me on a path that has molded me into the person I am today. They taught me how to work as one and what leadership really meant. I learned a great deal about myself, my true self... a self... that wasn't truly me. I don't know if I will ever reconcile the way I conducted myself but there is no choice but to continue forward. I will never know what could have been, where I would be, who I would know, what I would have done, would I be alive... All I know is I got a second chance to be a Father to my son and to be with the one I love most, and I wouldn't trade that for anything. Many thanks to all the men and women out there that fulfilled their commitments, and many apologies for me not fulfilling mine. Goodnight Chesty, wherever your are... #yellowfootprints #USMC #MarineCorps #SemperFi

Sometimes you have to go back to where it all started to realize the journey was worth it. #usmc #yellowfootprints #4thbattalion #18weeks

Today makes 8 years since I put my feet on those yellow footprints and I became a Marine it's crazy how time flies I don't know where I will be if I didn't join the Marines #USMC #SemperFidelis #AlwaysAMarine #ParrisIsland #YellowFootprints

This shit still gives me fucking chills, 15 years later.
You never forget that #ohshit moment.

EDIT: I was recently asked by another admin "would you go back, knowing what you know now, but in your 18yr old body?"
I said "no, I would go back in my currently broken body, knowing what I know, because despite my daily struggles, I know I can and would do it all again."
Gladly.

Its been a long hard 19yrs, and honestly I'm amazed that I made it this far. I can't begin to express how thankful I am for the people in my life. The ones who loved me, supported me through it all, and helped turn me into the man I am today. You give me hope, and make this life worth living. Thank you all💙
