Oct 29 - Trip to Parris Island. Pardon me for all the pictures, but they are for my Dad. He was a drill instructor on Parris Island during WWII. Love you Daddy!
Anyway, we walked around base and also viewed the Marine Corps Museum. It was a very emotional day for me. We also got to see them practicing for graduation. These guys look like babies! Even the officers look so young!!!!
|Important battles were listed on the walls of the museum. |
Saipan was important to me....
|When working out, this is how they stack their rifles and packs.|
