  1. I received a message from the daughter of one of our shipmates on Facebook . I hope she doesn';t mind me putting her name on this site . I will surely apologize and somehow get it removed if she does ( Joellyn Lazarek ) ( Jodie ) . I know by her inquisitive notes that she would like to have information about her Dad . My son Chris , who went to a Redfin reunion with me to Charleston S.C. was intrigued by talking with her Dad for a long period of time in the reunion room that was set up for us . Chris ( son ) met and was welcomed by most of the ones who attended . We enjoyed the whole week end

  8. These two Marines fought on Iwo Jima . They had never met until this year 2014 on Veterans Day . They were surprised that out of the three WW11 Veterens two of them fought on Iwo Jima . They could hardly wait until one finished his story for the other one to tell his . It was a good dinner celebration for all military veterans organized and financed thru the efforts of John Coyne .
