Here is a photo of My Dad's Drill Instructor from 1965, from his Platoon book.

 

This picture always fascinated me as a kid when I used to look through the book, My dad said he was a Mean Marine but taught him what he needed to know to get through combat.

 

I wonder what happened to Sgt. K.R. Amos?

I collect items from The Battle of Iwo Jima (1945).

Top Iwo Jima Items I'm Looking For:

1) IDed 5th MarDiv Corpsman Jumper or Forest Green Coat.

2) IDed Coast Guard Navy Jumper

3) IDed CB's Sea Bee's Navy Jumper

4) IDed 147th Infantry Regiment Army Service Coat

5) IDed 32nd ID Army Service Coat (Occupation Kyushu with 5th MarDiv).

I am always looking for named and dated WWII USMC Forest Green wool alpha jackets/coats from the 5th Marine Division or other units who participated in the battle.

Bet you a beer it's Kenneth R Amos...

 

there's 2 on the ancestry logs...1 strictly WWII service, the other enlisted in 57...the rolls end in 58...

 

8 years later 1965...Sgt would be about the right rank and timeframe for a DI tour

 

BTW, he started with 7th Marines
