Mike got the thrill of a lifetime when another Scoutmaster's plans suddenly changed. The Scouts could not be disappointed.  Another qualified Scoutmaster must  be found!  Fortunately for the Scouts, Mike was trained, qualified, conditioned, and available.  The Air Force allowed Mike free time off to support the Scouting Program, provided a van, fuel, food for the Scouts, and the long planned high adventure trek was saved!  Mike's grin still hasn't faded since 1988, Philmont's 50th anniversary.

The united states marine corps welcomes you to Boot Camp

  • The first challenge of becoming a Miarin was forming up at the San Diego Airport.
  • Drill Instructors met us at assembly points and gently guided us into Cattle Cars, semi-truck trailers, to Boot Camp.
  • The shock grew every moment, out of the trailers & onto the "Yellow Footprints" eyes locked!
  • Thus begins the uncomfortable process of earning the title of  "U. S. MARINE."
