Usmc Career Marine Collection Wwii Korea Vietnam Photo Albums Id Guam Awesome:
Wow, I don't even know where to begin....this is a collection of USMC items from a career marine named Marion E. Drivas. Drivas was in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam. I would have loved to interview him. Collection includes TWO photo albums loaded with pics. One is a WWII wooden covered album full of pics almost all overseas and many on Guam. There are pics with Jap Flags, machine guns, b-24, buddies, natives, jeeps, and etc. The second album is missing the cover but is of his service in Korea. He was in the 1st Marine Division in Korea. Lots of great pics, all overseas in Korea of captured machine guns, troops marching, lots of vehicles, Never Die Valley, tanks, and etc. The WWII album has 153 pics, the Korean War album has 60 pics.
Also included in the collection: 8 rank patches, 2 National Defense Medals, USMC Korean War Medal, UN Medal, Korean War Service Medal, Pacific Theater Medal, Various ribbons, 7 overseas wool caps (one named to him), 5 wool covers, one in-country Vietnam name tape with his name, his original awards document dated 1972, 1966 military id, 3rd Marine Div Non Comm Club 1961, 1962 Engineer Field Data, Vietnam Marine Notebook, Amphibious Assault Bulk Fuel System Book, 1967 named Guidebook for the Marines, 3rd Marine Airwing Vietnam folder, and his USMC stencil kit with ink and rollers named to him.
This is a rare opportunity to get a collection from a marine in three wars. I will not split the collection up, I bought it together, it will stay together. Thanks and good luck. Shipping is $8.00 with insurance. Payment due within 3 days of sale close.
