To his credit he was at least articulate and coherent.  But if he feels like this a platform that people are going to flock to for his thoughts on social issues.....well.  No thanks.

Even when sober he still seems like a spiteful individual and I have a tough time figuring out what he imagines is to gain from this.  Too many bridges will be burnt if he wants a media presence outside of his basement podcast.

I was going to say, EDM concerts arent known for large alcohol consumption.  Certainly other things though.  And typically a cool crowd.  

Makes sense that if he was into that it why Bosa and him became roommates, also makes sense as to why Bosa got the fuck out.

I too share your obsession for the Hamilton Khaki.  An American classic.  It will be my next watch purchase.  I was obsessed with bronze divers for a while and that cleaned out my watch budget.  Check out Halios Watches.  Excellent customer service and reasonably priced divers.  By reasonable I mean, under 1g.

Ha, yea definitely no dates.  From the timing Id imagine hed either be in or preparing to knock out the crucible.  If they still even in do that.

Out of curiosity when where you in/what units?  Im a one pump chump and was with MSSG22 and 8thESB from 01-05 based out of Lejeune.

Hey SPD,

I dont want to rain on your parade.  However, there is no way in hell your friend is attending a Marine Corps Ball if hes still in Boot Camp. BEST CASE scenario, hell be washing dishes and taking out trash while his Drill Instructors make up him do burpees in cooking oil.  I would ask him three questions.

When do you graduate boot camp?

When is the ball?

Where is the ball?

If the date for question one is after the date of question two - do not go.  I get the impression he doesnt know what hes talking about. Which is ok, hes probably just being overly enthusiastic right now. Id hate for someone to make long term plans for something that wont ever materialize or end up being a complete nightmare.  There are some salty ass Marines with more experience than me on here.  Hopefully they chime in.  I didnt pick up on this detail initially.

Former Marine here.  And Navys let down of a son.

 Its initially extremely formal.  Lots of ceremony.  Its not brutal to sit through as a civilian.  Theyre concise and carry a lot of meaning.  Once the formalities are done with it turns into all out "lets get shit faced" party.  Someone will inevitably make a career jeopardizing comment to a superior.  Its glorious.  Its kind of like a wedding in a way.  And I would use that analogy when planning your outfit as well. The initial formalities end and then everyone sprints to the bar.  These are Marines after all.  I would advise that your date keep his shit together and be respectful without acting like a sycophant - considering hell be a boot when you attend.  There is going to be a lot of senior Marines there.  Dont let him get to big for his britches when the drinks start flowing.

TL:DR

Have a good time and respect the traditions.
