Yesterday, the U.S. Marine Corps celebrated its 241st birthday, and today we celebrate all of the men and women who have bravely served in all branches of the armed forces. Thank you to all who have served, or are currently serving, to preserve our freedom!
My grandfather sent this card to a neighbor in Entiat, WA from Camp Endicott in Davisville, Rhode Island.
“Just a few lines to let you know I haven’t completely forgotten folks back home. How are you? Hop & the kids making out by now? I sure could go for one of your meals right now. (anytime) I’m beginning to like it here more & more all the time– especially the gals! Just turn this card over & you would have seen me in Providence recently. ha ha Write!”
Grandpa would have turned 100 this year.
Remember to thank the veterans and current servicemen and women in your life. Happy Veteran’s Day!
