With my orders from Raven actual, I am reporting for duty!
Pvt. Tracy Wilson, and looking forward to meeting all that will be at All-con this March.
So say we all!
Welcome aboard, Tracy. Report to the armory for outfitting and issue of ammo.
Sir, yes sir!
No need to "sir" me. I am enlisted. You may call me Gunny or Gunny Boogman. Once again, it is a pleasure to have you aboard. By the way, Pvt Mojo, have you reviewed the reading materials on the MARDET page?
During my absence, I have missed all new Marines joining the Raven. So first off, I would like to welcome each and everyone of you aboard the Raven. I am Major Eduardo "Enforcer", the Raven Marine OIC. My goal for this group is to turn each and every Marine on this ship, to the best fighting elite group of people out there. And when I mean the best, I mean THE BEST! Why? To quote Bruce H. Norton :
“Combat is fast, unfair, cruel, and dirty. It is meant to be that way so that the terrible experience is branded into the memory of those who are fortunate enough to survive. It is up to those survivors to ensure that the experience is recorded and passed along to those who just might want to try it.”
-Force Recon Diary, 1969: The Riveting, True-to-Life Account of Survival and Death in one of the Most Highly Skilled Unites in Vietnam.
At the same time, after working hard all day, nothing can compare to Marines partying and having fun.

Welcome, Mojo. You're with the best ship and crew in the fleet. Look forward to working with you. If you want to uniform up, several members have posted good tips and sites for the purpose. There are pictures galore of the various uniform versions, and Actual has Raven patches available. Few things attract attention like a Squad of geared up Colonial Marines. Will look into All-Con and post if I can attend. See you on deck.
