I am a 70 year young MARINE.I was in the Corps from 1960 to 1964,like the saying goes “once a MARINE always a MARINE” In 2005 I went to Iwo Jima with Military Tours.I’m enclosing an article and picture an incedent that took place on Mt. Surabachi.I’m the MARINE with the blk leather jacket (EGA patch I purchased from Sgt. Grit.) raising the American flag ;thus becoming the oldest MARINE to raise the flag on Iwo Jima.Also enclosing a pic of one of the 13 times I ran trips back to the Holy Land (Parris Island)Please note guidon flag was purchased from Sgt.Grit.Keep up the good work.
