Humor Called my brother then uncle in Vietnam wish them USMC birthday

I love them both we all have sense humors. And they bounce me as I am former army birthday we share with trumpig. They are still brainwashed from Paris island I remind them that they’re both LEGS army leg definition is lacking enough guts to jump never airborne infantry and it is all in jest.

I joke with my younger bro he got same dad speech in 85 as I got in 84. Our father was two tour vet Vietnam the herd he lost leg second tour with 173rd airborne. Our father after medical retirement worked as union electrician for 31 years. And my bro and I were straight Union I’m teamster bro is Union steam fitter our uncle worked same steel mill as our father. The dad speech was you asshole I told you not to enlist in infantry our father smelling of PBR Pabst blue ribbon.

Years later I now understand what our father was worried about. It was real to him and he did not want us to suffer the shit he suffered. My brother and I were young we could not think two steps ahead. We had this stud type thinking will be men it will make us men. Our father or uncles who fought from Korea Vietnam never talked of their horrors.

Not to go off on memories after I called my bro. I called my uncle who now lives in Vietnam. After his wife passed and he retired on his pension he traveled and ended up living in Vietnam. So the plan is after vaccines on Covid my one bro the marine vet other bro a physician and I and my boys. We’re flying to the Nam to fish as we’re all avid fishing weirdos. We’re gonna go on hunt for huge catfish, and stay with our uncle a former marine infantry tour in 1967. And meet his new wife she’s 66 a doctor as well.

Happy birthday marines
