Graduation book request

Just a heads up, if your going to reach out to the staff with a request for a book or platoon picture it would make it easier for us to research your request if you could provide ALL information about your boot camp platoon.

Information needed:
1. Location of boot camp i.e. Parris Island, or San Diego
2. Year of graduation
3. Month of graduation
4. Platoon number AT graduation

It is not unusual to start boot camp with one platoon, get set back due to injuries, then get re-assigned to a different platoon. Our boot camp database uses your graduation date, NOT the date you entered boot camp.

Bottom line, if you want our help, you need to provide enough information so we can do our research. What ever you send us, be it a copy of your DD-214, or home address, we do NOT share this information with ANYONE but you.


Carry On Marines!!

As a heads up I added your name to your platoon section. Here you can also add your contact information if you choose to do so.

GREAT day for Marine Sean Ardaiz of Lakeside..

Sean Ardaiz is starting off his year with a bang.

While searching the internet trying to find a copy of his boot camp graduation book he found Yellow Footprints, AND his graduation book. Turns out we have a wonderfully preserved book that looks like the day it was made. You can check out Sean's platoon at the following link.

Parris Island, 1986 August Series 3058, platoon 3058. Training pages will be scanned and uploaded to our on-line database tomorrow 1/10/16

Congratulations from the Yellow Footprints Team

Congratulations go out to Dave Prue

Dave has been searching for his boot camp graduation book for a number of years, then he found the Yellow Footprints web site and it’s collection of books. As he was searching through our database he found we not only had his platoon listed but there was a copy of his book in our collection. His first question was, how do I obtain a copy of the book? His second question, I’m in the Philippines can you ship the book here?
I think he was a little blown away when I told him we do not sell these books because they are FREE to any Marine listed in the books and that all he had to do was request the book. The answer to his second question was a sounding YES we will ship to the Philippines.

You can review Dave’s book at the following link:
http://www.yellowfootprints.com/year....php?cat=12944

As a side note, if you’re a family member of a Marine that has passed we will ship his/her book to you as well.

Again, congratulations from the Yellow Footprints team

Yellow Footprints come’s through again…..

Many of the emails we receive in regards to Marine boot camp graduation books and platoon pictures are from Marines searching to replace a book or picture that had been lost over the years. The email from John McClimons was no different.
After checking our database we found we did have copies of his platoon graduation book but not the actual book. Because we have a number of listings of books in the hands of private collectors we found his book was in the hands of a private collector who has offered to give John the book he had in his collection.
This is why it is so important that if you have a collection of these books be it one book or 50 that you get use a listing of your collection that we can then add to our database.
Congratulations John on a great find……..

The Yellow Footprints Team

Boot camp year book available

I may have posted this info in the past. If so- apologies.
I have a second year book for MCRD San Diego, Plt 369 graduation (Oct 1964). I will gladly package and send to you (Yellowfootrints) to be scanned into your database. As it is a 2d copy, I understand if it must be cut up in order to be scanned. Alternatively, I can scan it at home at whatever resolution you require and send to you via a cloud source, e.g. Dropbox, or mailed CD.

Please advise.

-MSGT Ed Blanchard USMCR(Ret.)

Ed,

Your information is incorrect....we DO NOT cut up these books fr scanning. I've been scanning books for over years and NEVER cut up a book.

If you want to send the book to use for scanning you can do so by sending it to:
Yellw Footprints
PO Box 341
Orangevale, CA 95662.

Please include a note if you want the book returned.
