Terry I mean no disrespect but I did train for the USMC. That got me a felon in possession of a forearms charge at 15 and boom. Ineligible for service.

I did a lot research

My brother Michael, is a US Marine...well was...he was in for 16 years before he got medically discharged after his MRV was hit by an IED.
The Marines work with the Navy...basically the Navy carries the marines to the battle front..my brother worked side by side with some Navy Seals..
My brother did 4 tours in the big sand box..and 2 of those he volunteered for.

His graduation pic...no medals yet..




Him and his fiancee



Him, his dad, and his other half brother, Blake, who is also in the Marines.
Blake joined up in 2005, and has done 2 tours over seas.


Here is a training pic, they were playing in the mud with military equipment...and his Ford King Ranch..lol





Anyway, after about 16 years of service, once he had his accident, and being the only survivor in the truck, he has alot of physical issues, with his back and legs, has had numerous surgeries and what not. No he is not crippled, but he is somewhat disabled, and this will be a big issue for him as he grows old.
Him and his fiancee just had their first child.

Also, my stepdad was in the airforce during the Gulf War, my Uncle was in Veitnam with the airforce, my sister was in the Navy and her husband is a colonel in the Army. And my late grandpa was a WW2 vet in the Army, he landed on the beaches of Normandy.

Your brother sounds like quite the guy Glenn. I love hearing about our soldiers. Or should I say Heros. My grandpa was in WWII on an aircraft carrier called the uss Bismarck sea. It was sunk off the coast of Iwo Jima by kamakazies while the fighting was happening on the island...

Yeah. I'm curious why they are selling for cheap. Maybe, if the explorer is in good condition I could convince my dad to let me get it. I would swap a lot of interior stuff.
