A USMC 100-Year Family Tradition

A USMC 100-Year Family Tradition

I am writing to thank you for the posters that you sent to my brother, Virgil Campbell. I am one of the proud recipients. I had seen that poster at the VA office also but didn’t have the foresight to see where it came from. I do have your catalog now and will be ordering other items. The Marine Recruiter in Kenai, Alaska told me that he would hang one in the office over there if he had one so I asked Virg to pass one on to him too. Virgil gave 3 to other former Marines today. You have made a lot of people happy. Semper Fi and thanks again.

The first photo is me in 1960 and the second one is my son, Lcpl Forrest Elge, who is now stationed in Okinawa at Camp Foster. He is in the engineers.I hope I didn’t send these before. I am so proud of him though. We have had Marines in our family continually for 100 years now. Thank you again and Semper Fi.
