Marine Barracks Great Lakes

Last week a plaque was affixed to building #2 at Naval Station Great Lakes in Illinois. The plaque reads: "Site of the former Marine Barracks, Naval Station Great Lakes 1926-1977. This plaque honors all Marines who were stationed with Marine Barracks Great Lakes 1926-1977, during peacetime and wartime. The Marines stationed in these barracks represented the Marine Corps, the Navy, and the nation with dedicated, honorable, and professional service. Semper Fidelis. Donated by Marine Barracks Great Lakes, Project 2015."
