Marine Corp Birthday Blog Hop Day Two
Happy 236th Birthday Marines! As we celebrate the 236th birthday of the United States Marine Corps, we also remember all men and women who have chosen to serve our country so we can be free. If you happened upon the this hop please visit Ashley's blog http://www.proudusmcwife415.blogspot.com to get started. You should have gotten here from Beckie's Blog http://justbcreativecrazy.blogspot.com . This is day two of a three day hop and each one of my projects will have the same theme. My father (who passed away 28 years ago) served in the Marine's from 1951 thru----I really don't know. He was stationed at Camp Pendleton in California and scheduled to go to Korea during that war but broke his leg and spent his entire time in the Marine's performing office duty. But he was a Marine and very proud of it. Each day I will have a layout with different pictures that I have of the life in the Marines and at Camp Pendleton during the early 1950's.
The individual pictures today depict what my father and other men went through in basic training and combat training.
I hope you enjoy this little trip back in time concerning the Marines. I have certainly enjoyed putting this scrapbook project together. My Blog Candy will be a $20 Gift Card from Hobby Lobby or Michael's. Just leave a comment, be a follower of my blog and make sure I can get in touch with you. Now, hop on to Alina http://neverstopscrapping.blogspot.com . Thank you Marines, past, present and future for all you have done. Make sure you come back tomorrow.
