    Default 47th platoon USMC

    Picked this up today at a local junk shop. USMC items are much harder to find then Army and Navy. The thing I like about this photo is that it has most of the names to the faces. Gary

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    Fixed it
    Yes I was in the Marine Corps,I still work for them. But I joined in 1979 and I grew up in Philadelphia so I went to the east coast Boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina for my recruit training.
