Ray Merrell's Book MY THREE YEARS IN THE MARINE CORPS....finished it yesterday...will likely have to re-read it...there is a lot to soak in...woven in between the letters home & the era of the corps...wow...times they have changed...yet...not the ingenuity & creative nature of the Marine...peppered with all that is the Corps...particularly the humor & sense of duty...to each other...

WOW...great gift for anyone who has ever been in love, lived through a war era, appeciates the simpler times in life & wants to remember what really mattered was in your own house, on your own street in your own town...in downtown, rural, urban America...

Take a walk through both sides of WWII with Ray, Helen & all their friends, family & fellow Marines.

Good for the soul...

Highly recommended...
