    COLONEL MIKE LOWE'S MESS NIGHT SPEECH AT CHARLIE COMPANY TBS[/SIZE][/COLOR]


    [LEFT][*******#000000][FONT=Trebuchet MS]The following are the remarks of Col. Mike Lowe, the Commander of Marine Corps Base Quantico. These remarks are very much to the point and the Colonel held the absolute attention of everyone at the mess. Colonel James M. Lowe[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [FONT='Trebuchet MS', Verdana, sans-serif][SIZE=2][*******#000000] Commander Marine Corps Base Quantico.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Trebuchet MS] "From that elegant introduction, you may or not have picked up on the fact that I have had 5 tours in Marine divisions, serving in all 4 divisions and 3d MarDiv twice. I have made 8 Marine expeditionary unit deployments, served with the special operations command and have been to every level of PME possible in order to hone my war fighting skills.[/FONT][/COLOR]

    [*******#000000][FONT=Trebuchet MS]Utilizing your great deductive abilities, intellect and experience as Lieutenants, you should have questioned the Corps' collective judgment when they decided to make me a Base Commander! I sure as hell did and I still do![/FONT][/COLOR]

    [*******#000000][FONT=Trebuchet MS] Look up "base" in the dictionary.[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Trebuchet MS] According to Mr. Webster: "lowest part or bottom. Having or showing little or no honor, courage or decency; mean; ignoble; contemptible; menial or degrading; inferior in quality; of comparative low worth".[/FONT][/COLOR]
    [*******#000000][FONT=Trebuchet MS] So... After 28 years of focusing on locating, closing with and destroying, I've got that going for me![/FONT][/COLOR]

    [*******#000000][FONT=Trebuchet MS]That's ok! Go ahead and laugh! There is at least one future base commander sitting among you right now![/FONT][/COLOR][/LEFT]
