Boot camp pictures and flash backs

I was contacted recently by a Marine (William Turner 1963) who was looking for his graduation book and platoon picture. Although we didn't have either in our collection what we did find simply floored him. We not only had pictures of his Drill Instructors, we had pictures on file of his entire platoon and those recruits he trained with.

As Bill would write, I may not remember their names but I remember each and every one of their faces. Not to detract from boot camp of today, boot camp of the early 60's could be pure hell for most recruits. It was the start of the Viet Nam war and the Drill Instructors would say YOU will not die for the lack of my training.

In the end, Bill would receive copies of all the pictures we had on file. This should give him many years of memories he can share with his family.....Semper Fi Marine
