While reading your AmericanCourage Newsletter #195, for 05 Mar 2009, I saw the picture of PFC Bonehead submitted by Bart Baldwin, of Brackettville, Tx. I thought it was so cute that I sent it to my Daughter, because she is always dressing her dog up in ‘His Marine Blues’ for different Marine occasions. I’m a Life Member in the Marine Corps League, John Basilone Detachment # 190, here in New Jersey and a couple years ago after marching in the John Basilone Annual Parade, which is held in Raritan, NJ, I stopped by her house on my way home and she took this picture of me and Pablo, her dog. I know we were both a little ‘Out of Uniform’ , but please understand, I had just marched a couple miles in the heat and was hot and tired and on my way home. (no excuse, I know !) Now, PFC Poochie (Pablo) had no excuse, he was at home all day guarding his Mother’s perimeter, in the air conditioning, while I was carrying a flag for our Honor Guard in the parade.
