I have a picture of my three month old grandson in Marine cammies laying on a Marine flag all of which were purchased from Sgt. Grit. His name is Connor. He was born Sept. 5 at East Jefferson hospital in New Orleans. He weighed 8lbs 9ozs and yes he is a future marine.
Shot Of The Flag Pole
Hey, with the winds this week down here I was able to get a good shot of the flag pole I was telling you about. My father is standing next to it for “perspective.” He was active in Quantico & Cherry Point between 1958-62. I was in Twenty-nine Palms and Okinawa between 1983-87.
Hello Sgt. Grit, just a quick thank you for all you do for Marines Past and Present. I usually read your news late at night and yes , well up some. Guess you can call it pride… for Country, Corps. I graduated from 2d Recruit TrngBn, MCRDep, Parris Island, S. C., Co. K. Platoon 204, April 1964.
In January of this year, I placed an order with you for an American flag and a Marine Corps flag. After several weeks, I had not yet received said order. I called your ordering department to inform them of such. Without question or delay, the order was re-shipped, which I received within seven days.
Thought I'd send a pic of the pooch ( his name is Yawny)
Semper Fi to all my brothers and sisters.
