One of my most treasured Possesion is the Marine Corps Emblem. With the 4 years I had in the Corps, I am one of the most proudest to disaplay this Emblem, and to fell like I am still 10 feet tall. I treasure my time in the Corp, with trying to help any Vetran in any way I can, and showing my Emblem as much as I can. This one will have a Frame built, and displayed in my Home.

My maitenance guy at work is a retired Master Warrant Officer from the Canadian forces…he scares me too. Everytime I see a vet, I thank them. 6 of my uncles served. 1 was killed over France in 1942. Uncle Leo. He was a waist gunner on a Lancaster. I have alot of respect for armed forces active and vets. You guys are serious, serious people.

Semper Fi!

I was in the Navy and did a lot of work with “the green side” of the Navy. I learned very quickly – There is nothing like a good Marine!

Glad you are feeling better Jim! It is very good to see you posting projects again.

Rick’s father flew a Lancaster when he served.

This is a great tribute and treasure, Jim. Well done (in more ways than one)

SEMPER FI, Brother!
I spent almost 6 years in before I wracked my Harley around a tree in 1980. If you need a custom-made barnwood fram from a fellow Jarhead Sarge, give me a shout and I will get ya one made.

Welcome Back!
God Bless,

I was in the Army, drafted during Nam, ended up in up in Germany, but I still answered the call and I’m proud that I served and I’m proud of you Earl, my brother, forever. I lost 2 uncles in ww2 and my dad got shot up and sent home. Entered when he was 15 or 16 years old. jockmike.

4 years, 2 months and an additional 36 days after I was out—for the first Gulf War. Semper Fi.

Great work…not a day goes by that I don’t think of my time in the Marines. Somedays I think…I should re-enlist…but then again my wife would kill me.
