I am not trying to be a d!@& but I must get this question 10 times a month. Everyone knows someone who works here. At least be able to tell me their last name and unit. You have any idea how many josh/steve/rob/joe/insertyournamehere's there are out of 60,000? No you say? Let me tell you, there are more than I care to know. After the first 5 times or so I got tired of stopping every marine I saw just to find out if he was bob who used to live next sally. And just for all you non military types out there, I know people who I consider friends, people I have known for over 10 YEARS, and I don't have a clue what their FIRST name is.
If you can't tell I am just having fun here but I really do know Josh!
