Writing this blog is providing an essential service to the country, but I started to question whether I was doing enough and considered enlisting in the Marines. After a quick glance at me in the fatigues, the recruiter thanked me for my interest but assured me that my enlistment wouldn’t be fair to my wife and kids, wouldn’t be to my fair to my friends and colleagues, and above all – it wouldn’t be fair to the Marines! He saluted me and asked that I promise to continue my vital work on this site so here is a tribute to the Marines and all the other armed service men and women risking life and limb the only way I know how:

Thanks for your interest in “Tails from Paris”. We’re now following your blog.

Thanks for sharing if you enjoy it too …
Best from Paris, France

I love it and I am brushing up on my dormant French I like the comics a lot. D you draw them yourself. They’re really good
Nop. My two daughters provide me with the raw material. I am the scriptwriter & I work with an illustrator.
Either way it looks great
I picture my life as a comic strip sometimes…or a cartoon…
Reblogged this on digger666.
I served 4 years in the United States Marine Corps. I was a 3rd generation Marine. (family tradition)
I have too many great boot camp stories.
I was 20 years old and sharp as a razor.
I could go two or three days with pooping. (Ouch!)
That is nuts. Ivan just imagine the stories because its such a crazy asking for crazy things to happen way of life. I’m as tough as a roll of scotch tape so a military life was never in the cards for me…
