Jeff Byers is the USO's ambassador to troops in North Carolina this year. He was at Camp Lejeune recently. Here's the story that appeared in the Wilmington Star News:

I miss it.

no sir, you are correct! I definitely do not! Although the stumps actually has a pretty damn good chow hall now that they have civilians doing all the work... isn't it AMAZING how that works?!?!

Breakfall is an evil word! Can't recall how many times I was forced to throw myself on the ground for "good training".

Now that MCMAP has taken over the Marine Corps, instructors are "MCNinjas".

And the boots are tan-belt warriors.

The program is a joke. You learn nothing, it is a really a haze-fest. But it's fun being on the other end of it, lol.

Lol ... I served with a guy who thought the break the front breakfall was done from the standing so he would fall straight on his face everytime! The instructors obviously thought it was hilarious so they kept calling the other instructors and staff over to watch while they made him do it again, and again, and again! LMFAO!! The kid also was scared to do a right and left break fall because he said it hurt and he was scared of heights! Not the sharpest tool in the shed! Oh good lord the memories I have are priceless!! Thank god for everyday I got to spend in the Corps! Oooh Rah!! But I thank God even more that I am no longer in!! Lol...
