Thanks for these comments, USMCRET. Be sure there will be NO problem with me, nor with the men I have now the honor to lead ! After all I have been trained as legionnaire (and so are they). Moreover, I have been trained as REPMAN and sent to Mali in January 2013 ! Unforgettable experience for the boy I was then ! I think that with you, I don't need to say more.
I am sorry your active duty career was cut short with an injury. I'd wish the legion were more flexible. I know you would have made it a career.
We now have Marines on Active Duty with Prosthetic Limbs and they can PT and do their Semi Annual PT Tests. We used to medically retire them, no mater what rank or length of service. Now, some are allowed to stay and serve in other capacities in other Combat Arms Fields.
