Thank you All,

I've been on here for some time as Shakey Merlot (my original SASS Alias).  Just figured out I could change my name this morning!

Hopalong, I actually live 2 roads over from Corporal Donahoo Road.  Does that count?  I'm glad SOMEBODY besides me got the

name!

That is hilarious. Where in the world is Corporal Donahoo Road?

When I heard it I went, " I should know that name." It wasn't until Hopalong made the Captain Donahoo comment until it came to me.

Trailrider you'll be alright as long as they don't send you up the Hudson River with a copper tank for sails.

Corporal Donahoo Road is in Leavenworth County, Kansas.  Home of Fort Leavenworth appropriately enough.

Howdy Cpt Blodgett,

Was a Marine for 20 years.  Just always liked the song.  I have a weakness for old military songs and, of course, Sousa marches.

Once a marine...

I got a Marine Corps DI Cover from SGT Grit for WB.  Having never been a marine - gave the emblem to someone who was.
