I'm going to do the Operation Birthday Cake through the USO again this year. My son was in MALS 36 Avionics but now he is in Ordinance. Does  anyone know the building number for MALS-36 Ordinance?

Comment by Cheysproudmom (Jessie) yesterday
Yes Lea Chey had an appointment Monday and she said they did in fact have them, although she said she felt that they weren't as thick as usual, she was relieved to see that they found them, as was I!
Comment by Lea on Thursday

Jessie,  Has your daughter found her medical records?  It is so important to always ask for a copy of all medical treatment.  My daughter has been through a few injuries and she keeps a separate file with her at all times.  

If they don't come up with a file, have her start calling every place she can remember, starting with where she had the MRI and request a copy.  If you have questions request to friend me.  My daughter was stationed in Oki until last December.

Every time your Marine is seen it is also documented electronically. I might suggest she request a reprint of what they have on file. I am not sure if she would need to go through her command to make this request or if she can go straight to the her primary medical clinic.

So frustrated! Daughter still cannot find out where her medical records are....she has asked at every place she has been seen/treated at. Who else can she contact? I am super concerned about her getting discharged and having no proof of how she was injured!

Hi everyone !
Please check out this link to vote for a Sgt. in the Marine Corps for American Hero of the Year. The deadline for voting is just a few days (Sept. 6) from now. The Sgt. is one of five finalists for American Hero of the Year and the only Marine::
Thank you!

Thanks, Dianne! I will check it out!

Pattymom, how exciting for him! I know that my son really enjoyed his time on the 31st MEU. Have you found that page yet? And OPSEC is very important, you are so right about that, especially on a MEU.

Comment by Beanpole's Mom on August 28, 2014 at 2:33am

1~iansdad-  The luggage limitations on my sons orders to fly Alaska airlines and Patriot Express were crazy as to how limited they were.  I laugh about your disclaimer " (and they should know it)".  Wouldn't you think they'd learn after the first time their luggage didn't arrive with them at a postage stamp airport, to always be prepared?  Ha ha ha.  I keep telling my son, you're a Marine, not a Boy Scout, but even they know to be prepared!  Great list; now if we could just get them to follow it....can you hear the maniacal laughter?
