5 Questions: Lt. Daniel Chung

Posted December 20, 2012 by

1.) What services do chaplains offer to military personnel? We offer spiritual guidance and advice but also counseling. So if Marines or Sailors come in with marriage problems or stress at work they can come and speak with a chaplain. Some of us have professional degrees but most don’t so it’s not like talking to…

Papa San

Posted May 17, 2012 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant

I love rice bowls; in fact, I might even have a slightly unhealthy obsession with them. When I first came to Yuma three years ago, I was depressed to see a total lack of Asian food places, but with a little bit of looking and recon work, I found a few. I had been told…

Don’t let outside opinions determine your situation

Posted July 26, 2012 by Cpl. Jolene Bopp

If you have ever told someone you are stationed in Yuma, the common response might have been, “Oh wow, that stinks.” Or something along those lines. Most Marines would probably agree, but let me provide some food for thought. As a daughter of a former master sergeant and air-winger, my dad always told me, “Every…

Death Grips- The Money Store

Posted September 20, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

In the YOLO era of hiphop, where autotuned voices and superficial production run a muck in club-ready beats that fade in and out of memory like a boring dream, it’s comforting to know there’re still demented individuals in Sacramento, Calif., who are hellbent on laying out some of the most disturbing sounds this side of…

Listening to Superiors

Posted December 20, 2012 by Lance Cpl. Zachary Scanlon

There is something to say about a lower enlisted Marine with an opinion, and that is they should have a limited one especially when time is of the essence. For most young Marines in the Corps words like, “We don’t pay you to think,” have been said to them on more than one occasion. There…

Opinion: Mainting a combat mindset in the face of complacency

Posted April 5, 2012 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant

As I return to the office from a week honing my skills with a rifle, I am reminded of how much of a desk jockey I have become, wasting away, staring at a computer and worst of all, complacent. I sit with my back to the door, staring at a…

Well, it’s that time of year again. We have begun the 101 days of summer. Activity on the river is picking up. Folks are looking for ways to beat the heat and still have fun. If you’re looking to get some PT, come on out with me Saturday morning for the Firehose 5K. Bring the…

Entertainment Review August 16, 2012

Posted August 16, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

Man, John Dwyer and company has just been decimating it with psychedelic rock the last few years. I’m all like, just chill out and let me breath for a minute. Their latest release, 2011’s Carrion Crawler/The Dream, included a bunch of long, constantly mutating guitar-centric numbers that I should probably review because of chronological proximity…

Sinister

Posted October 18, 2012 by Cpl. Sean Dennison

It feels like horror movies are judged on two criteria: their capability of frightening the audience and their merit as a film, like with plot and character development and tension and stuff. Having said that, Sinister is among the best of modern horror cinema, with every scare justified and every scream satisfying. The story has…

Opinion: Wandering the Maze

Posted May 3, 2012 by Cpl. Aaron Diamant

If anyone has recently tried to drive from the front gate to the flight line, you know that it can be quite an interesting feat to get there. With the ever-changing road closures, you are often forced to endlessly weave through a veritable maze until you can finally emerge somewhere near where you need to…
