Blast from the past. USMC Expeditionary Advanced Base Operations Concept Document...

Thanks to Richard for the trip down memory lane!

I talked about my never ending pride in the Marine Corps and my intense frustration.  Consider this exhibit number one!

Look at all these fantastic ideas that don't seem to be getting any movement! The Marine Corps is a THINKING, EVOLVING, and TRAIL BLAZING organization that strives for perfection.

The Marine Corps irrelevant?  Not hardly!  Not likely!

For all the people throwing stones at this house its walls are high and formidable.  The work is being done.

HQMC might frustrate at times but they show glimpses every now and then that they're focused on the big fight...the future fight.
