Father and Son

Dear Sgt.Grit,

I served in the MARINE’S from 1975-1979 at EL-TORO with MARINE AIR CONTROL GROUP 38 then with the 3rd MARINE DIVISION.This is is about how proud I’am of my son Justin who is a CPL. in the MARINE’S who is serving overseas in the GULF REGION on the U.S.S. Iwo Jima.We both went in at 17 right out of High School and I wanted to attach both our pictures from boot camp.You must remember that there is and age difference of 31 years but when I saw his picture I had to find mine and do a double take.What I saw was myself and I just could not belive the likeness. I know this will not be important to others but I wanted to share it with you at Sgt. Grit.

Sincerely,
Mark Henry
Sgt. U.S.M.C.
