OK, strange bit of info came my way today... and perhaps those in the know can shake me from my "conspiratorial, something is coming" way of
I have an employee, on the job for nearly a year, and a former US Marine. Moved to the location of the new job, bought a house, and got married
within this year. Honorably discharged from his service. Now, the details of a Marine's discharge are something I know nothing about... not sure
how long he served, what his "job" was in the service, and what a Corps contract contains.
At any rate, he just put in his notice that he'll be soon leaving the job. He's been recalled by the Corps and has to report to West Virginia (???)
in May for 6 weeks of training before shipping out of the country. He either doesn't know or won't tell where he is headed after training.
NOW.... here's my thoughts. The last time I saw something like this in a civilian back to millitary life recall was during Desert Storm (or at least
it was the last time it impacted anyone I knew.) So to me, it appears that there may be a very massive run-up to a very massive millitary campaign.
I don't know of any bases or training areas in WV (didn't Google either... lazy) but I wonder if WV is chosen for terrain-based training, or there
are some other specialized facilities there. The only terrain matches that immediately come to mind in the "hot spots" of the world is North Korea.
So... has anyone else encountered or heard of any recalls like this? Anyone have any thoughts or anything to add? Am I out of my mind and this is
completely normal for veterans of the Corps?
Thanks, look forward to hearing something from the gang here (even the disinfo agents who will shout "nothing to see here, move on").
