Marine needs our help,

I recieved the following email from the son of a Marine who is being assigned to his final duty station, and he needs our help.

The message is as follows:

HELLO;

MY FATHER IS A MARINE VET WHO WENT THROUGH PARIS SILAND IN 1967. FOR SOME REASON HE NEVER RECEIVED HIS DRESS GRADUATION PHOTOS FROM THE ISLAND. LAST MONTH HE WAS DIAGNOSED WITH INOPERABLE LUNG AND BRAIN CANCER WITH 6MONTHS ON THE OUTSIDE, AND NONE TO PLEASANT TIME AT THAT. IT HAS BECOME VERY IMPORTANT TO GET THIS PHOTO BEFORE HE GOES, AND YOUR SITE WAS RECOMMENDED TO HELP ME FIND IT. FROM WHAT HE CAN TELL ME (THE TUMORS HAVE SOMEWHAT MIXED UP HIS MEMORY HE WAS IN PLATOON 250, COMPANY D IN FEB OR MARCH OF 1967. ANY INFORMATION YOU CAN PROVIDE WOULD BE GREATLY APPRECIATED AS I HAVE LITTLE TIME TO EASE A AILING GRUNT

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR TIME
EDWARD REILLY III


If you feel you have information about this platoon please contact me at; gmiller@yellowfootprints.com


Carry On Marines!!

I placed the URL to this post, on our fourms.

You might want to mention the Marine's full name, just in case someone was in the same platoon.

Here's the skinny...

I just got off the phone with Recruit Photo at MCAS Beaufort...w/Miss Lucretia Washington, Manager

Platoon 250, 2d RTBn, PISC
SDI: SSgt W S MORLOCK
ADI: SSgt B J DIXON
ADI: Sgt R L NUNEZ

Graduated 27 April 1967

Negative is on file and a color copy can be made at the cost of $10.80

Phone # 843-228-1555
Address:
MCCS - Recruit Photo
MCAS Bldg 553
P O Box 55018
MCAS Beaufort, SC 29904

Process takes 6 weeks.

Get the ball rolling!

Update...

Miss Washington, the Manager, is getting the order out...expedited.
It will take 90 days.
The photo will be sent to me at my address, as per her request.

I need the address of the family, so I can forward it.

Someone will have to call in the payment, as I am a tad strapped at this time.

Update:

A fellow Marine on TWS contacted me, and he's taken care of the cost.
Things are rolling along.

Marines......what a team.

I just pasted this post to an email to Edward for his follow-up. Not sure what to say people, but have to love this brotherhood.

Thanks to all who jumped on this mission....

That's what being part of a great extended family is for.
I admit not being the proverbial 'poster boy'...
I've made my share of mistakes in the past.

Once I get the photo, I'll immediately 'overnight' it to the family.

Best I can do.

Thanks Gary

for the mailing address.
I'll contact Miss Washington tomorrow and will request that when the picture is done that it be sent directly to Mr Reilly, instead of to me as originally scheduled.
This should eliminate any if not all possible logistical delays.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ ++++++++
Spoke with Miss Washington @0745 this morning my time.

The completed picture will be sent directly to Mr. Reilly.

She sends her Blessings to all.
