Paul Ehline Memorial Motorcycle Ride Journal and Blog

In the Marines, we are only as fast as our slowest Marine. When you want to get somewhere fast, everyone needs that training, spirit, and discipline! When we say, “I will be there at 19:00 hours,” we mean 18:30. When we call or text someone, especially a civilian lawyer supposedly there to protect us, we expect a sense of urgency and immediacy, not garbage, narcissistic excuses. Paul Ehline Memorial Ride is dedicated to raising awareness for wounded warriors and getting them the help they deserve, hopefully from a fellow vet with some legal experience, not some self-important academic who has never been in the real world. Take a look at our recent posts for motorcycle riders and injured vets.

Rest in Peace Gordon Lightfoot Memorial Letter for His Help Supporting Vets

 |  Michael P. Ehline
I am writing this article to express my deepest condolences and to honor the memory of the late Gordon Lightfoot, a truly remarkable artist whose music touched the hearts of many, including my father, the late Paul Ehline. As tributes pour in from around the globe, I correctly decided to make one of my own. As a devoted fan, my father took me to at least one of his shows when I was little, including one in Ontario, Canada. I also saw world-famous bands like Boston, Chicago, and Fleetwood Mac with Dad. And he occasionally used to take me to disco night at Knott’s Berry Farm in my hometown of Orange County, CA. Dad was quite the dancer, and his blue, yes, far bluer than mine, had the ladies on fire for him. Paul could really strike a pose with the ladies, especially the Australians and…

Glossary of USMC Slang and Terms in Alphabetical Order

 |  Michael P. Ehline
From basic training onward, you can never compare the Air Force, Air Force Academy, or any other more civilian life type military force to the United States Marine Corps. Service members from this combat-oriented branch, both officers and enlisted, offer the toughest and longest basic training a US service member can obtain. Here, even the enlisted ranks are expected to fill leadership roles and have always been at the tip of the spear of the United States military, and still do the most push-ups. Here are some great words used to describe different things even a newly promoted corporal would have down by their permanent duty station. Not all are official, of course. Some may vary based on your particular unit. But this is how we tend to speak with each other, along with the military…
