I'm a privacy freak so I don't divulge much personal info on the internet.

USMC

Spent some time in the grunts, some time in amphibious assault and very little time in tanks.

Specialist schools, NBC, LMG, Heavy weapons, & boobytraps (live and static).

I have my combat action ribbon and 3 Southwest Asia Service medals along with more medals and ribbons than I can remember. Not a whole lot. 4ish rows and a couple rows of medals. Most are duplicates, stars etc.... USMC isn't too liberal with the ribbons. I'd have to find the box to actually remember everything.

It's great to see some other devil dogs here.

      I like trucks too.  I've always driven Dodge's.  I still have my 1989 Dodge D350 one ton dually.  It was primarily used as a race car hauler and I had a slide in camper on it for a while for use at the track.  I've hauled everything in this truck and it never fails to make me smile.  I always get comments about it as it's an "old school" style with bolt on fender extensions.     Jani

      Hello all    I’m half way into my 8th month of HRT I would say the explosive exuberance has subsided although I am still feeling wonderful about this journey. I’m kind of settling in with my new life and acceptance of who I am very comfortably. My wife is a little bit better as it all becomes more familiar. It’s one day at a time for me and so far they have added up nicely .    All the best to everyone on their own journey                   Sharon Aml

      Welcome Chris.  It sounds like your moving out from under of your past.  My journey was in many ways similar to yours.  I'm glad you've joined us here.  This site has helped me especially as i learned i wasn't alone.  Sharing with others eased some of the difficulties i had faced and that continue to face me as a trans* person.  I must add that i love to share my "triumphs" as well.   Hugs,   Charlize

      Hi Elissa! Welcome to Transpulse! My mom  took about a year to come around (sort of), my dad took about 3 months. Initially they were very hostile to it. I kept in touch, and basically showed them it was not the end of the world and it was what was best  for me.   Hugs, Marcie   .

      I didn't get to make it to this years march as the sap is flowing on the farm.  I certainly enjoyed the march last year.  Here is a picture from that event. what a great group of women.  I got there early and had a great time simply relating to others.                 Hugs,   Charlize
