Midnight And Dawn

Midnight And Dawn

Well, I finally put up my new flag pole with the new USA flag that I ordered from you and my son-in-law and my grandsons helped me put it up. As you can see, they did a great job raising Old glory. I have a lot of pictures of the Iwo Jima flag raising and they wanted to do the same. So today after church we all took part in the flag raising ceremony.

Also you can see my new vehicle with the emblems that I ordered from you too. Everywhere I go and park my vehicle, I get a lot of compliments and ask where I got the emblems and I refer them to order on line from SGT GRIT.

SSGT Moreno's youngest grandson saluting My youngest grandson, Max, wanted his picture taken by “his grandpa’s” car and he wants to be a Marine too when he grows up.

I served in Vietnam between April ’66 thru August ’67. I served with 1st Battalion, 26th Marines, Headquarters company. I was stationed on Hill 55 , south of DaNang the first year and then my last 6 months I was stationed at Khe Sanh, where it was h&ll. We were hit by artillery at midnight and dawn without missing for the last six months we were there. We lost a lot of my comrades and a lot were injured. I will never forget those friends that gave their lives.

Well, I hope you can use some of my pictures. I always look forward to reading the letters from former Marines on your web page of Grunt.com.

Take care and God bless!
