Met my DI after 40 years

Met my DI after 40 years

Jim Grimes and one of his old DIs

Thank you Sgt. Grit. Your newsletter put me in touch with my Drill Instructor Sgt. Dickerson. I had not seen him since the day after graduation in March of 1970. We met last week while I was on a business trip to Texas. We had a great reunion and a wonderful dinner. Again thank your for your good work. Now get busy and find my other two Drill Instructors, SSGT Fredricks and Sgt Wrin. If there are any other Marines out there that I served with I would love to hear from you especially anyone from Plt. 1229
