    What's up to everyone. My name is Nick and i'm one of the wounded Marines who just returned home from Faluja, Iraq. I was shot by an enemy sniper in the face while walking on a roof top and lived to be an example of a true miracle. It's been 2 months now and i'm on the road to recovery. On the 15th I will have a couple more surgerys but I know the worst is over and God is on my side.

    Anyways, since I have been home I purchased a 1970 all original K5 4x4 Blazer. I don't know alot about them but have visions of what I want to do. I thank you all for the welcome and look forward to learing all the knowledge I can. God Bless and Semper Fidelis....

    Sorry to hear that you're injured, but glad to hear you're not bitter or angry. You truly sacrificed for your country, and as a citizen, I appreciate that.

    Ahh another French Fourrage member welcome home brother myself and 79stomper were members of 3/6, he is stationed at Camp Lejeune and I am now in the reserves with 25th Marines, India Company. Ya gotta admit that the Fourrage makes the uniform look better than any other uniform in the US Military
