I appreciate the site that you have built. I am currently stationed at NAWS China Lake. It is hard to get anything Marine here, so anytime I get a chance to browse your catalog is nice. I am proud to be a Marine and am always looking for more ways to show that pride. I thank you and the veterans who retain the title Marine because without them I couldn’t have it. Semper Fidelis to all Marines who see this picture of my beloved aircraft. This picture was taken sometime during the 1998/1999 31st MEU deployment on the USS Belleau Wood. We painted the tail in 1997 on my first pump and the deployment previous to us painted the nose art. I hope all Harrier Mech’s like it and are proud of our aircraft as it is one of the most versatile and lethal in the US inventory.
