Farm And Livestock

Gen. Krulak cutting one of the graduation cakes at the school photo of Gen. Krulak speaking at the Food Services School at Camp Lejeune Chesty cutting one of Ski's ( to the right) USMC Birthday cakes, Pearl 1949 Interesting that Gen. Krulak closed the Mess Hall. He knew a little about USMC Food Services, as he had a friend who was the first commissioned officer( Chesty pinned on his bars) in what Food Services of the Corps is today. The Lt.Col. I am speaking of, Peter Paul Yezerski, was a good friend , and at the time the oldest living , having served the earliest of any known Old Breed China Marine, before his passing. Went through boot at Parris Island when they had a farm and livestock as did most bases at the time to feed the troops. Ski was from Mass. also, enlisted at 15 in 1931 and at 16 was in China. Gen. Krulak and Ski were friends, when Ski asked the Gen. for anything he usually got it as was the case with most Marines Ski served with. Here’s a photo of Gen. Krulak speaking at the Food Services School at Camp Lejeune. Ski is to the left, with the glasses, of Gen. Krulak. Another photo is Gen. Krulak cutting one of the graduation cakes at the school and the third is Chesty cutting one of Ski’s ( to the right) USMC Birthday cakes, Pearl 1949
