Sgt. Grit,

I would like to submit two pictures, my Boot Camp picture at PI in 1953

Platoon #73. My wife still has a letter from me stating “I love you almost as much as I love the Marine Corp” and she still married me!

The 2nd picture is of me on the left and a fellow Marine Corps League member Joe Shea laying a Wreath at the Marine Corps Monument at the New Hampshire State Veterans Cemetery on Memorial Day 2011.

The Marine Corps has always been a big part of my life and I credit much that I have achieved in life to God, my wife, and the Marine Corps.

Just wanted to share this with my Marine Brother's and Sister's!!!

Semper Fi
Dick Tobin
