Marine Corps Pride

Marine Corps Pride

Dear Sgt Grit,

Ensure that no Marine who honorably wore the eagle, globe and anchor is lost to the Marine Corps family. General James L. Jones Jr., Commandant of the Marine Corps

I have found this to be so true. Whenever I meet fellow Marines, I instantly seem to bond with them. We have that special something that quietly bonds us as “brothers”. I served in Vietnam from 1967 – 1968, and was sent home after being wounded during TET of 68. Because of the Marine stickers, and my license plate, I have been thanked many times for serving. It gives me a feeling of pride and satisfaction to receive their thank you’s, even after all these years. I’m enclosing pictures of my vehicle for you to see. I’m looking for someone who will be able to airbrush my vehicle with Marine ensignias, pictures, etc. If I ever get that done, I’ll submit pictures so you will be able to see the final project. Thank you for your service, your web site, your news articles and everything you do for the Marines of our great country.
Sgt. Joe D. Hill
