Greetings,

     I am an infantry marine currently deployed to Afghanistan. This is my 2nd combat tour to Afghanistan (lucky enough to have internet access this time) and I also had one to Iraq.  I am a mortarman by trade, but since we aren't using mortars here anymore my platoon has been broken down into a provisional rifle platoon, in which I am a squad leader.  I was recently promoted to Sergeant and have been in going on 6 years now.  After this deployment I intend to get out of the military and go back to finish my Mechanical Engineering degree at Penn State University. 

     I am 23 years old, turning 24 in August.  I am married with no kids, but a dog that we treat like a son. 

     Some of my manly interests include cigar smoking, pipe smoking (tobacco only of course) shaving with a straight razor, and my cars (VW GTI and VW CC)

     I love this site and am so glad I found it. I look forward to contributing to the forums and getting more insight on all things man.

Cheers,

Alex
