My husband entered the Marine Corps and was in Parris Island, SC in Aug
1948. He was in Platoon #188 which graduated 29 Oct 1948. He
remembered today how lonely all the guys were and how they spent time
with each other looking at the things that others had brought from
home. Ed had brought his high school year book with him. In the front
of the yearbook he had written the names and addresses of many of his
buddies. Most of
his buddies went to Korea, but he remained at Parris Island to work in
the newpaper there. Later he went to Korea as a Naval Aviator and
followed this career for 31 years. Perhaps the following list will mean
something to someone. He also has a picture of the platoon.
