PL OK!

Nice to hear General Geiger profiled. My father and the General's son were friends. (They served together in Viet Nam.)
Awesome. I'm a retired Marine. I can't tell you how many times I drove by Camp Geiger near Camp Lejeune in North Carolina and never thought to ask who it was named after. Obviously, as a Marine, I know the history of the Marines in the Pacific during WWII, but maybe not in the detail I should. Guess when I was on active duty I was too busy for history lessons. I'm doing that work now and it's further appreciation for the unit I served for 25 years.

Another close friend of my father's joined the Marines. He went to enlist before being drafted into the Korean Conflict. My father was with him and they checked in with the Navy and Army but the lines were too long. Jimmy said to my father, "Let's check out the Marines." They found the recruiting station nearly empty! Jimmy enlisted. (My father said, "I'll wait til I'm drafted.") Jimmy did his time and then stayed in the Marine Corps Reserves for his twenty (?) years. My father was eventually drafted into the Army and stayed on for twenty-two years or so, first as an enlisted man and then he was sent to OCS.

I just realized that you haven't been putting in the times (length) for each section into the Magic Window. (I should have pointed that out at the beginning.) I've gone ahead and put them in for your completed sections.

Great reading!

I'm having trouble accessing the project from the dashboard. I can get to the dashboard, but the system won't allow me to access the project. I'll try to update the Magic Window again in a while. Hopefully, it's just a hicup...

I can access it just fine... if you're still having trouble, I can ask more technically knowledgeable admins.
