My personal hero

By: Jim

I met Gunny Basilone when he was on a war bond drive at the age of 12 and that very day decided to be a Marine. Enlisted on my 17th birthday, twice wounded in Korea and retired at age 32 as a result of the wounds. Have never regretted it – would do it all over again. Than you Gunnery Sergeant Basilone.
