Re: now grandkids

Rene'-maybe a military college (such as the Citadel?) where it is VERY
structured, would be something to talk him into and then he can join the
Marines as a 2nd Lieutenant instead of a "recruit"  just a thought. He'll
have to go to San Diego for Boot Camp since you live in Oklahoma. If he was
coming to Parris Island I could keep tabs on him for you....
