    Shock OH MY GAWD That used to be me!

    Advertisements
    Ok, so I joined this page in 2011 when my husband freshly joined the MC. His training took what felt like decades (sig-int) and the rules were soooo rough for us in the beginning.

    I just recently remembered about this group. (We had moved and everything got crazy and I legitimately forgot!) My husband is going to OCS so I was going to look up info on people's experiences and whatnot... things to do in Quantico etcetc

    of course i start reading threads that are being posted (I feel like this group was much more active in 2011? maybe its just me)

    Anywho i read a thread and i was like OMMMGGGG I used to be her! Lol I thought it was funny that i have officially run full circle!

    Anywhooooo... I hope to be more active now! I love the threads and the gentle yet firm way some of yall give advice.. Much love ladies!

    I was dating DH when he joined the Marines in 2007, but I didn't join this site until 2014. I've had so many "that used to be me" moments when I read some of these threads

    Also, based on what long time members have said this site is a lot less active than it once was.

    I feel like it used to be a lot more active, in part because in that time frame there were several deployments going on at once. I know DH's original deployment is what brought me to this site.

    But to the OP, yeah, I see a lot of myself in some of the younger posters that come in here. Oh to be 18-21 again...back when I knew it all.

    Yes...used to be way more active! I feel the same way with some posts I see...I guess we were all a newbie (whether with the site, the military or our relationship) at some point!

    Anywho...welcome back!

    Thanks! I canít believe I didnít utilize this site during deployments. I would have been a big help. Ugh! We had three deployments in 5 years

    Itís a real bummer that itís not as active anymore. Back in 2011 there were soooo many posts and so many replies, Iíd be lost in the page for hours. Loved it!
