Would like to let you know, as a career Marine.
18 years old when enlisted, 1939. I am now 91
After graduating in 1939 (Apr), I was transferred
to China assigned to the Old Fourth Reg. At that
time Gen Puller was a Captain. I had many runs
around city of Shanghia with then Capt Puller.
Gen Puller left China a month before we shipped
to Phillippines. Of course you know what happend
WW11. I spent nearly 4 years as a POW. But
getting back to the General. What a Marine.
May he rest in Peace
