He was trained at new river? Marine base I believe (waiting for National Archives for more detail).
I received some photos and information about him (one of the pics is cover of Life magazine).
I'll post the pics when I have the post count.
Anyone an expert on these guys?
Eventually his unit was broken up and he served with the 22nd Marines for the rest of WWII.
