See that? Thats me and my brother a few years back. He is now a marine in infantry training. God, I haven’t seen him in about 8 months.. I miss him, makes me tear up every time i see a picture of him…you might think thats not a long time but if you had a strong relationship with someone that wont be back for 2 years, you’d feel the same.
He’s cleaned up so much, a marine. A frickin marine. I couldn’t be prouder! He’s being deployed in november for the first time, I always fear something could happen to him but i try not to. I have all my faith in him, I love him so much. I’m even tearing up writing this post. Gosh, its so hard, growing up with a military family…I wish he hadn’t gone, but he said that he WANTS to represent our country.. My respect will always be with the military! My brother is my hero and I couldn’t ask for anyone better to look up to. I love him…. I am a proud marine sister, so proud…
1. Throw all your calendars out, because if you even THINK about making plans, something will fucking change.
2. Better get used to Skype sex being the only sex you get for months at a time.
3. Have fun having emotional breakdowns at least once a week from missing your significant other so…

This pamphlet, issued in 1918, provides a glimpse into some of the concerns of the United States War Department during the last year of World War I (or as it was known at the time, the Great War). The paint and varnish specifications outlined in the pamphlet applied to paint orders carried out by “manufacturers of army equipment,” and “orders…placed direct by the War Department” (p. 3).
A “General Specifications” section laid out the physical properties as well as the testing, inspection, labeling, and delivery standards to which paints had to adhere. Requirements for specific paints were to be found in the rest of the pamphlet - each entry consisting of a paint’s name and corresponding identification number. For some entries, a color card was also included.
