I found my papa's picture here by complete accident and I am so thrilled and honored!

The other day I was online researching my paternal grandfather's immigration records from Denmark to the United States, with very dismal results unless I am willing to spend a small fortune, and I typed Raymond P. Hjorth (my papa's name) into Google search just to see what might pop-up in the list. Serendipity was kind to me and PFC Raymond P. Hjorth, Service Battery, 4th Battalion, 12th Marines, 3rd MarDiv., 1952- 1953, was the very first item listed in the search results. I became teary eyed as I clicked on the entry with nervous anticipation and found his picture here. This is the youngest picture and only Marine Corps picture I have of my papa; who passed away May 27th, 1987 when I was just 16 and he was only 52 years of age. I cannot tell you what stumbling upon this picture means to me and I thank you for providing it here from the bottom of my heart.

What you have experienced,

is the true meaning of supporting our brother and sister Marines, and their families.

Although there are a number of admin's who support this site, SSgt Nancy Lukes efforts in the historical books area has such a heart warming effect on us, and you that benefit by it.

Thank you all
