Commandant's Christmas Card

Commandant's Christmas Card

Earlier this year, I inherited the personal items of my paternal grandfather Sgt Oscar S. King, so I sent a few of the photos to you. Here is another set from his collection. Both of the men pictured served with my grandfather in the 78th Co. 2/6.

The photo of the Marine sitting is Cpl. Haas, and the second is Sgt. D.B. Hill, from Crowley, Texas. This man and my grandfather were good friends and remained in touch many years after the war. If there is anyone out there who knew these men, let me know.

The last photo is of the 1919 Christmas Card each Marine received from the Commandant.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all my Marine brothers and sisters.

Semper Fi,
Stephen King
Sgt. of Marines
1976 – 1982
