Marine Corps Birthday Blog Hop

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 to get started. You should have gotten here from Beckie's Blog . This is a 3 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. If some of the pictures are too small I will make a separate picture. I hope you enjoy this little trip back in time concerning the Marines. 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 . Thank you Marines, past, present and future for all you have done.
Make sure you come back tomorrow.

Anita, I love that you are using your old photos!!!! I was born in Camp Pendelton in 1978 and I would love to go back for a visit. My brother is stationed in CA for now and thats great just wish I could afford to go out there but oh well right! My family is a long line of Marines and I have an Uncle in the Navy so I feel I had to be in this hop!! So glad we were in the hop together my crafty friend!!!

These are wonderful photos of your dad and his time in the Marines. My dad is 88 year old and his birthday is Nove. 10, the same as the Marines. He was inthe Pacific theater during WWII. He went through basic training at Camp Pendleton before shipping out.
I made him a card for his birthday/Marine Corp birthday and gave it to him this week. You can see it on my blog.

Charlotte said...

What a great LO about your dad. I know that you are very proud of his service in the Marines.
