Lee Harvey Oswald

It was brought to our attention that we listed Lee Harvey Oswalds graduation platoon date in the wrong year. The date listed in the openning front page of the site show's his graduation was in 1957. In deed his true graduation date is December of 1956. We have changed the date on the openning page to reflect the correct date of graduation.

Thanks for the heads up.

Correction,

Over the years there has been a dispute on Oswalds actual graduation date from San Diego. Even the Marine Corps Historical Society was not sure if he graduated in Dec or 1956, or January of 1957.

Finally a Marine from Oswalds platoon as stepped forward to set the record straight. Don Davis not only trained with Oswald, he also enlisted with him, Don has submitted their shipping orders from Dallas, Tx where they both enlisted together, then travel to San Diego together. Without the help of Don we may have never known the true date of graduation.

You can view their shipping orders at the following link:

I'd like to thank Don for his concern that we have the correct date of graduation in our database, and his support of the site.
