Shamrock Platoon

Shamrock Platoon

Attached you will see a picture of when I was at Parris Island, SC. March 17, 1951. Approximately 60 of the men came from Connecticut. We went as a group and were called "The Shamrock Platoon". Most of the men were assigned to Korea, as I was one of them. We were a Honor Platoon.
