When someone says I have a number of books to donate,

ya just might heed the warning.

One of our members who has been purchasing, and donating graduation books to Yellow footprints for the past few months has gone above, and beyond the call of duty on this one.

Unless I get approval I'll keep her name a secret for now, but if you doubt the level this person has gone with her dedication to our mission of colleting these books please see the attached pictures.

All in all, this one donation amounts to over 400 books, a number of which are women Marine books, which are hard to find. At this point we’ll be receiving a spreadsheet (listing) of each of the books which we will enter into our boot camp database. Because of the shear weight of this shipment it might be better to have this collector hold on to these books until we find those Marines who have lost them.

Once approved, we will post this person's contact information (email Address) as to where these books are located. If these books are shipping to Yellow Footprints, we will list them as being in our collection.

Again, I should mention, if you have any of these graduation books that you are willing to part with please reach out to me with your contact information so we can post it in our database.

From the bottom of my heart, I'd like to thank Ms. G for all she has/is doing to further the search for these historical books, and their return to those Marines who have lost their books over the years.

Graduation Books

When did graduation books start? I graduated San Diego in 1949 & don't remember any graduation books, just a platoon picture which I sent to you a few years ago.

Let me add a couple of things

Hope to see our first cut of the database of books in another week, or so.
The donor does understand what this means not only to the site, but Marines in general. These books hold so much history for each of us that earned this title. As the year’s go by, these books tend to hold more than just pictures. They hold memories of what it took to become a Marine and to be part of this great brotherhood we have here.
Once these books have been cataloged, we’ll start creating platoon sections in the database where the platoon pictures will be posted.
It will be noted in each platoon section that a book has been found, and where to find it. We list Yellow Footprints collection, as well as listings from private collectors that supply their lists. We also post contact information (email address) for YFP, and collectors.
For those of you that have their books, and platoon pictures, think of sharing with your fellow Marines. Get your books scanned, and submitted to the site. Please see support@yellowfootprints.com where you can send your scanned platoon pictures.

Please note; Although Yellow footprints does not charge for their graduation books, private collectors can, and do.

Semper Fi Marines!!

It will take a week or so to get these books listed in their respective platoon sections in the boot camp database. If you see your book in this first list, let me know so we can get your book shipped out to you.

Our contact email address is:

Good luck, and Semper Fi
