GAH! It's time. It's inevitable that this would happen. Here is my DISCLAIMER:
The opinions expressed in this blog are my own, and not necessarily those of any other Marine or the United States Marine Corps. Or the government. Or Big Brother. Also, to anyone who may be offended, annoyed, or directly mentioned in my entries, I made a promise to myself to be honest and candid about my life. I make no apologies for the content of this blog. Feel free to e-mail me with malicious threats if you think it will help. For those I compliment, I say nothing dishonest, and you'll have to just blush and accept it. Certain people affect my life, and I'm grateful for their interaction.


I'm Sara, and this is my blog. I started it four years ago so my family could keep tabs on me when I was in Iraq. Now I'm in Okinawa, which, ironically, is farther away than I was before. I started this blog as a Marine enlisted reservist, and now I'm an active duty officer. Who would have guessed life would have brought me here.

Here are my thoughts on life as a Woman Marine.

I'm a millionaire! Here's what it's really worth, though. (IQD to USD)

Favorite quotes:

Willy Wonka: *We* are the music makers... and *we* are the dreamers of dreams.

Willy Wonka: So shines a good deed in a weary world.

Patricia (Joe Vs The Volcano): My father says that almost the whole world is asleep. Everybody you know. Everybody you see. Everybody you talk to. He says that only a few people are awake and they live in a state of constant total amazement.
