Memories For This Unit

Best Moment
Being Promoted to Sergeant

Other Memories
I recall the Friday evening sun set parades. Would have enjoyed watching it instead of participating in it.

We would also be called up to provide funeral details for burials at Arlington National Cemetery.

Enjoyed the job of correspondence instructor in the Airpilot's Course that I had completed.

December 1949, I reenlisted for duty at Naval Ammunition Depot McAlester, OK. However, I was only there for six months and then transferred to 1stMarDiv
