Do you have your yearbook? Of so, who was your Series Officer and Series Gy?

Jenks 06-08-2008 04:36 PM

The C.O., Co. C was Capt H.L. Kendrrick, Series Commander was 1st Lt. E.S. Evans and the C.G. was Act.Gny. Sgt G.C. La Due Series NCO

GunnySan 06-08-2008 06:55 PM

I remember them all. I was also in 'C' as a DI but mostly as a Series Gy. That was in 1958, then I went to 'A'. I had 151 and 1004 in 1958.

Jenks 06-09-2008 05:55 AM

Good to know. I arrived at MCRD July 1st 1959. I started in a different platoon but during Mess Duty I got blood poisoning and spent two weeks in the hospital. When I got out 152 picked me up and the rest is history. By the way my dad was a career Marine. His name was Harley W Jenkins he spent most of his time in the Provost Marshall Dept. When he retired he was a Master Sargent.

Your platoon section has been created in the boot camp database along with Drill Instructor information.

You can submit platoon pictures or scanned copies of your graduation book to:

Once we receive that information we'll enter it into your platoon section. We can also create a personal section that lists under your platoon number where we can also add your email address. We need your permission to add your email information though. Send your approval to the email address list above.

What's the deal with standing like that with an NCO sword? Looks unsat to me. Standing in front of the PX for a glamor pic? Don't get it...........

Maybe because they are somewhat informal. He doesn't even appear to have a scabbard. Never carried a sword without a scabbard. It was routine to sheath the sword when going into a platoon formation to correct a recruit. Not nice to poke out some kid's eye. Very easy to forget you had a pig-sticker in your hand when charging into the formation highly enraged.

My name is Darrell L. McCulley. I served under your dad in Iwakuni Japan in 1962/63 when he was a CID. Loved the man. How is he doing? Well I hope
