Have you contacted the National World War II museum? If you're any where near NOLA, you owe it to yourself to check it out. And of course, they can help you find World War II Marine vets.
PM me if you need some contact info.

Covey demonstrated the rope climb on the O Course by doing it upside down.
The Edge ... there's no honest way to describe it. The only ones who know where it is have gone over.

I didn't have to look them up either. I will never forget any of them. I can see their faces in front of my eyes now. They made it possible for me to become something more than just another human.
They made me a Marine.
I am a Marine and I will die a Marine, I wouldn't have it any other way.
Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any queries, I would be happy to provide info for your book.

Platoon 2049 P.I. summer '81- SSgt Pointfield, Sgt Eischeid & Sgt Nelson. I can remember during night combat training & infiltration course, Sgt Nelson would take off all insignia and mingle with us boots. He would grab, trip, push to provoke a response. I had thought he was one of the privets and grabbed him by the camo shirt to get in his face, then realizing he was my DI. Payed for that one for the duration! Cling-On.

There was a freak winter storm that hit, damaged $8 mil in citrus crops. Being that miserable has allowed me to endure the hardships of Iraq. I hate cold weather, if we go to war anywhere that is cold, I will need to go to Recruiting School! While I was in Boot Camp, Saddam Hussein kicked the UN weapons inspectors out. The DI told us to get ready, the Grunts were hurried through and went onto SOI. We support troops got extended leave, home town recruiting, and then ship out to MCT. I remember it like yesterday, when I started boot camp it was hot, when I finished it was cold. I hate cold weather

This thread is 4 years old and the OP hasn't been back since '09.
Closing this one.
As an FYI, we do have a Veterans Roll Call thread where lots of us talk about our service etc.
