Military Historical Tours

Last May, I took a tour of WW1 Marine Corps battlefields offered by Military Historical Tours of Alexandria, Va. The tour was outstanding, the last day being at the ceremonies for Memorail Day at the Aisne-Marne cemetary located on the Belleau Wood battlefield. The Commmandant and Sgt. Major were kind enough to pose for many pictures with active and former Marines in front of the “Devil Dog” fountain. To drink from the fountain is said to raise the life expectancy of a Marine by twenty years. That alone made the trip worthwhile!!!!!
