November 10th is a big day for Marines. It's the 236th birthday of the United States Marine Corps. My dad was a Marine in Vietnam. I believe this day is more important to him than his own birthday.
This is my dad.
Dad when he was in the Marines.
(he's the dark one in the cap, American Indian ancestry on his father's side, he gets so dark when exposed to the sun; I got more of my mother's fair complexion)
