LCpl Manny Dacosta

LCpl Manny Dacosta

Would anyone in the New England area happen to know or recognize this Marine from service at Quantico in the 1959-1962 timeframe? His name is Manuel (Manny) Dacosta or DeCosta. I believe he may have left active duty as a LCpl. One squared away young Marine! Notice the gold collar emblems and scarlet/gold ‘pogey rope’. He would now be in his late 60’s/ Let me know please.
