Inspired by the Yellow Sweatshirt we wore during bootcamp in 1962, I designed and had made this Yellow T-Shirt for the surviving members of my boot camp platoon. Twenty-two members of Platoon 145 ordered thirty-two shirts. They shipped on Tuesday, February 16th and should be in the hands of the platoon members by Thursday February 18th or Friday February 19th.
I would like to send a photo and brief description of the old 3rd Bat. barracks at Parris Island that are being torn down. I was there two weeks ago, they are partially demolished, the bricks are being preserved and sold by the base museum to raise funds. The barracks were used from 1960/61 until three years ago. A new Bat. area is located a short distance away. I took some pictures of the shells of these buildings while standing on the old parade deck, many memories came to me there in the silence. Thought many old 3rd Bat. Marines would like to see what has happened to the barracks. I was there in 1961, they were brand new, and jokingly referred to as Disneyland by the 1st and 2nd Bats.
I find it somewhat amusing and ironic that there would be a story on Cpl. JL Stelling from 1964. I enjoyed that story but would like to add a new story to it.
JL STELLING was my DI in 1967. He was a SSgt. at the time, but retired from the Corps as a 1st Sgt.
Just wanted to show you my love of the Corps. Here are pictures of my 2010 Dodge Challenger. Her name is Semper Fi.
