It’s been a tumultuous time of shifts and changes for Hawaii Marines. Last month, the Corps deactivated 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment and stood up its first Littoral Anti-Air Battalion (LAAB) on the island. 3rd Marine Regiment will soon become 3rd Marine Littoral Regiment.
That’s cool and all, but I’m not sure who comes up with these names. “Littoral” basically just means Naval, or otherwise aquatic, or… Marine. The aquatic, naval nature of the Marine Corps is implied. I also don’t know where the leadership digs up these old English words from. Littorally no one has ever used the word littoral since 1775.

On a personal note, I just want to address why things have been so slow lately on my part. Last year, my wife and I had a baby boy named Theodore. We are LA transplants, here without any family. They say it takes a village to raise a child, and we’re learning the hard way how true that is. The last 9 months of his life have been some of the most challenging of my life, and that’s coming from a guy with 2 deployments to Iraq. I know I’ve fallen behind on pretty much every aspect of my life at this point.
With that said, I do believe there will be some change in the winds in the coming months as we rearrange our living situation a bit. I have really exciting stuff in development that I can’t wait to finally be able to talk about (under NDA at the moment). Stay tuned.
