Letter from MCRD, Marine Barracks, Norfolk VA in Dec 1913Sgt Grit,

Reading your various messages, newsletters and such, I can’t help to see how the older Marines lovingly refer to the Corps as the “old Corps”. Now look at the attached scan and tell me if this isn’t “Real old Corps”! MCRD, Marine Barracks, Norfolk VA in Dec 1913.

I just added this piece to my USMC postal history collection but I had to share it with others. We talk of brick buildings, others talk of wooden structures but here is a great example of a “Tent Camp”.

Semper Fidelis!
