    I think some are in Iraq and others left the military for fear of getting sent to war. Bush has effectively destroyed wrestling programs in the Armed Forces.

    Trust Me I Know , No Matter If You Make The All-marine Team Or Not They Will Find A Way To Get You Back To Your Mos, And Back To The Fleet. Bush Don't Give A Crap About Atheletics In The Service. U.s.m.c. Used To Be The Staple In Greco For The Armed Forces, Now We Are Getting Passed Up By The Army Cause They Have More Number Than Us. I Guess We Should Call Back My Old Section Leader At Pendleton Out Of Retirement To Show These Fools How Its Done, Msgt Gibson Ring A Bell To Anyone?

    Sunny Day! Re: what happened to the marine greco team?

    I will shed a little light on this subject since I know first hand. The Team does produce high quality greco athletes. like many of u mentioned ,War is the biggest threat to our team. When we get great athletes it takes time to build them up due to the fact none have wrestled greco or freestyle before so it becomes a learning process, by the team we make a break thru the units are calling them back to go to iraq. Thats why many of the former marines are on a different squad now due to no fear of leaving the US atleast with a flak and a kevlar..haha. This year injuries plagued our team but it was fought thru and we made great strides toward the olympic year coming up which is everyone goal correct?
