Hi! I was sitting last night and going through all the First-Day Covers and postcards I had collected at stamp shows in the past years. Got to pare down for the move, so was just sorting. Came across this WWII cover, from a Marine in the 3rd MAW. So, I looked him up and typed up all the info and muster rolls. Pretty fun, I thought!
