THIS NEW DESIGN features the USA FLAG.
The USA FLAG isheat sealed onto the front panel of this OD GREEN collector hat.This
process allows us to give this hat a personalized touch with special
collector patches that you can wear proudly,which werenot previously
Heat seal patches have an adhesive backing, which is put on the patch,
at the factory,after it has been embroidered. The alternative is to
have the adhesive put on before the patch is embroidered, but this
option entails several potential problems and usually thiswill makea
patch fall off in a short period of time! The heat seal material, we
use on this hat,is a clear slick coating of glue which, when applied to
the hat with heat, adheres to thehat and will not come off! In order
to get a good adherence, pressure is the key. Many people use a hand
iron, but note that you only have as much pressure as the strength in
your arm.That is why we usea heat press which gives the best set on
thepatch, whichwill not come off!

LETTER FROM BOOT CAMP....
Dear Ma and Pa,
am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine
Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up
quick before all of the places are filled. I
was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m.
but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you
do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs
to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay.
Practically nothing. We all haveto shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water & no out house!
is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon,
fruit,etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried
eggplant, pie and other regular food. Tell
Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on
coffee. Their food plus yours holds you until noon when you get fed
again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much. We go on
"route marches," which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to
harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A
"route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city
guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks. The country
is nice but awful flat. The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a
lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels just
ride around and frown. They don't bother you none. This
next one will kill Walt and Elmer with laughter... I keep getting
medals for shooting &I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big
as a chipmunk's head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like
the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable
and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in
we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle
with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real
easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the
best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver
Lake. I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm
only 5'6" and 130 pounds and he's 6'8" and near 300 pounds dry. Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in. Your loving daughter, Stephanie Marie

Cemetery Escort Duty
WARNING....DO NOT READ.....YOUR MONITOR WILL
just wanted to get the day over with and go down to Smokey's. Sneaking a
look at my watch, I saw the time, 1655. Five minutes to go before the
cemetery gates are closed for the day.Full dress was hot
in the August sun. Oklahoma summertime was as bad as ever--the heat
and humidity at the same level--both too high.

looked factory-new. It pulled into the parking lot at a snail's pace.
An old woman got out so slow I thought she was paralyzed; she had a cane
and a sheaf of flowers--about four or five bunches as best I could
couldn't help myself. The thought came unwanted, and left a slightly
bitter taste: 'She's going to spend an hour, and for this old Marine, my
hip hurts like hell and I'm ready to get out of here right now!' But
for this day, my duty was to assist anyone coming in.

an old woman's squint.

section, stopping at a stone. She picked one of the flowers out of my
arm and laid it on top of the stone. She murmured something I couldn't
quite make out. The name on the marble wasDonald S.
Davidson,USMC: France 1918.
turned away and made a straight line for theWorld War II
section, stopping at one stone. I saw a tear slowly tracking its way
down her cheek. She put a bunch on a stone; the name wasStephen

thoughts. They are the reason for the many freedoms we enjoy.

Every now and then, in the middle of the
constant barrage of trash that’s just lighting us all up these days, we come
across a story, a feat, an event that just makes us stop in our tracks.
This was one for me....
Cody Green was a 12-year kid in Indiana who was
diagnosed with leukemia at 22 months old. He loved the Marines, and his parents
said he drew strength and courage from the Marine Corps. as ...he bravely fought
the battle into remission three times. Although he was cancer-free at the time,
the chemotherapy had lowered his immune system and he developed a fungus
infection that attacked his brain. Two weeks ago, as he struggled to fend off
that infection in the hospital, the Marines wanted to show how much they
respected his will to live, his strength, honor and courage. They presented Cody
with Marine navigator wings and named him an honorary member of the United
States Marine Corps. For one Marine, that wasn’t enough ... so that night,
before Cody Green passed away, he took it upon himself to stand guard at Cody’s
hospital door all night long, eight hours straight.
Nowhere on the face of this planet is there a
country so blessed as we to have men and women such as this. I wish I could
personally tell this Marine how proud he makes me to be a MARINE!
do so love this country.
