PI records,

Itís unfortunate that Parris Island doesnít keep these records for more than four years as appose to San Diego who keeps records going back to the 30ís.

I still remember Plt#, 255, DI's , Sgt's. Mitchell(Senior), Hyder, and Thomas, with Cpl Poots in the last two weeks fresh out of DI School as Sgt's Hyder and Thomas left to be SDI;s of their own Plt.'s. The other 3 Platoons were 253, 254 and 256. Grad date was 28 Sept 1965 at PI. Sgt Mitchell made Meritorious SSGT on 1 OCT 1965. and Sgt Thomas was selected for WO in for the Spring 1966 WO class. I ran in to then GySGt Hyder at the Marine Air Terminal in Nam in the Summer of 1967. By then CPL Potts was trimming grass at Camp Hansen with a P on his Utility jacket...

It's not hard for me to remember the serial # of the last M1 Garand I had in the Corps. It was an International Harvester with a national match barrel. I also had spent a lot of time turning the stock into a work of art. We had to turn in our M1 Garands for M-14's. I found out a few years ago that my Gunny had told the armorer to set aside my M1 Garand. Another Marine told me he saw my Gunny putting a rifle into his pick-up truck that evening. A few years ago, I had gotten my Gunny's phone number so I gave him a call. I asked him about the rifle and whether he had taken it. He told me "Ya wanna buy it? It's a collector's item."

Gary, you and I are in the same boat about remembering ten min. ago. But I do remember my rifle serial # it was a M-14 and the # was 19595, My laundry # 48, and I definitely remember my serial # 2479... from Aug.1968.

Jack,

THAT'S messed up. I think my respond might have been....WELL gunny you do know that's a stollen rifle. ha

I still have my boot camp shooting book from the range, I'll have to look and see if I put my rifles serial number in it.

NOW if you were to ask me what color one of my DI's eyes were I'd have to say BLUE. Will never forget those eyes, when there in your face you don't forget.
