What a wonderful 239th Marine Corps birthday event:
This morning I met and conversed with an ultimate WWII Marine Corps Pacific War veteran, Navajo Code Talker SAMUEL HOLIDAY!
This Marine was at the American Legion Post in Wickenburg, AZ, promoting his book, "Under The Eagle". My wife Shirley and I spoke for some time with 90 year old Samuel and his daughter, Lupita. Lord, he seemed to be wearing as many ribbons as Col. Puller!
I have to admit it folks, meeting and talking with this combat vet of, among other places, Kwajalein, Saipan, Tinian and Iwo Jima was a truly heart-grabbing experience!
