Attention on deck, Grad book listings

We recently received listings of graduation books that are stored in a number of locations on the East coast. From county libraries, to Marine Corps museums, we have listings for 233 books.

It is our mission to track and locate as many of these graduation books as we can, and to list these books in our boot camp database. Although museums may not allow you to check out these books as libraries do, you may be able to view these books. Libraries who are listed do allow these books to be checked out.

We ask that you do not contact these locations if your book is not listed in our database. Most, if not all of these locations do not have the man power to field phone calls just to see if they have your book. So please varify they have your book by checking your platoon section first....appreciate your understanding.

We'll start listing these books in the database starting this weekend (4/23).

The Yellow Footprints Team

Gary,

checked with my local libraries and they have several cruise books in their Reference Section - they cannot be checked out, but can be viewed at the library.

Update..

Over 200 Boot camp platoon book locations have been entered into the boot camp database where platoon books can be found. See example listing below:

http://www.yellowfootprints.com/year...hp?photo=12507

http://www.yellowfootprints.com/year...hp?photo=12515

http://www.yellowfootprints.com/year...hp?photo=12555

http://www.yellowfootprints.com/year...hp?photo=12644

Platoons not entered into the database at this time are those platoons with no month of graduation. We will be entering these platoons shortly.

All I can say is to keep checking back, we get donated books in all the time. We just recieved another box of books (thanks Geri) that we should have entered into the database over this next week.
