New guy

Discussion in 'Roll Call' started by schroeder, Jun 13, 2015.

  1. I'm Originally From North East Ohio, but I live in eastern north Carolina now due to being in the Marine corps, I've been in 3 years now and I'm in the infantry. I live there with my wife, and 2 dogs and I'm expecting my first son in 2 months!
    I use a propane smoker I got from Lowe's for my birthday a few months ago, I'd like to say I make some awesome ribs with the dry rub I created but there's always room for improvement in other areas. I've had a passion for cooking ever since I was 12 and I plan to open a restaurant once I eventually get out of the corps.
    Anything outdoors and adventurous I love, for example my wife and I are finally going on our honeymoon next April (we have been married almost 3 years now) to Hawaii and are going skydiving, shark cage diving, scuba diving, hiking along cliffs and what not, I also love to golf and relax at the beach. Well I think I wrote enough to bore anyone so I'll leave it at that.

    Welcome to the board! Are you at Cherry Point, or New River? I've been to those bases on business. I made sure to try the local little Q stands as much as I could while I was there.
  3. [​IMG]   Good morning and welcome to the forum, from a warm, cloudy and humid day here in East Texas. Lots of great people with tons of information on just about  everything.

    I was at LeJeune, too, I think that was 1999. The guard post at the entrance was unoccupied, and there was a big sign hanging saying PROCEED.

    I was helping to train the commissary workers as they switched their inventory bar-code readers over to 802.11 wireless technology.
  8. Welcome to the forum & thank you for your service. My son was stationed at LeJuene with 2/9, they were deactivated about 2 months ago.
