    I’m wondering if that young lady ever joined the Marines for real or not?

    • Nope. I was wearing my uncle’s uniform (who served in Korea and Vietnam). I was in high school at the time of this photograph and my Dear Marine Uncle was on leave and came to visit us.

      He was wounded in Korea and again in Vietnam. Shrapnel was moving throughout his body until his death years after these wars – of cancer. He was my Hero.
