Over Fifty Years

Sgt Grit,

I’d like to share with you and your readers two photos of two great men that have been good friends for over fifty years! The first picture was taken at Qui Nhon, Vietnam in Aug, 1965. On the left is my dad, Retired SgtMajor John Swindle (then GunnerySgt) with Retired SgtMajor John Semensow (then 1stSgt). They were with 2nd Bn 7th Marines.

The second picture was taken Oct, 2007 in Oceanside, CA. On the right is my dad, Retired SgtMajor Swindle, and on the left is Retired SgtMajor Semensow. Them being good friends for over fifty years is just amazing to me!
