Marine Copper

Marine Copper

Sgt Grit,
I’m an Honorably Discharged Marine and now a Chicago Police Officer. Thought I’d drop an email and show off my newly acquired license plates. I am extremely proud of them. I’ve lost count how many times I’ve gotten a honk and a thumbs up while driving. Not only do these plates show my pride of being a Marine but they also remind people to remember our Marines and why they are doing what they do. God Bless all of our Marines and the U. S. Marine Corps. Semper Fidelis.

Best Wishes and Semper Fidelis,
Cpl. Joseph A. Midona Jr. 1989-1993

Update

An updated photo of my truck for you to add to my previous submissions. Since my last email, I contacted a company which makes reflective vinyl stickers for boat names and had them make this for me.

I feel the need to stress the point of the cost of freedom to everyone by any means. This is my way. If my truck makes people think of and hopefully appreciate our Marines and our troops, if even just for a few seconds, then I’ve achieved my goal. Plus, I’m so damn proud of our guys and girls out there this is my small way of thanking them daily.
