Car of the day:
So for today:
In 1956 I was a young Marine. I found
a good friend from Pennsylvania. We met in boot camp. His name was Robert Dallas
F. Once out of Boot Camp and at our duty station, we wielded the friendship. Not
much for drinking and hanging out at the Slop-shoot, we sat on our bunks and
talked. 99% of the conversations were
about girls. Yep he was crazy about a young girl named
Marian and of course I talked about a beautiful girl, SHERRY. We were both
determined to marry these girls and move them down to the base. Funny thing he
thought Marian was better looking and sweeter than my girl. HA the boy did not

the draw, so on September 22, 1956 and home on a short weekend (Sat noon to Mon AM.) WE were married at 7:25
sat night the 22nd of Sept.
Well Dallas married Marian in
October, and we all finally got to meet. We moved into Camp Geiger Trailer Park
not 100 yards apart. Dal and Marian are
also still alive and in good health. They
live in Pennsylvania and we live in NC, FL and other places. (LOL) WE are long time friends and enjoy the times
we get to share with each other. Those two are also a dedicated couple with a

have two boys, they have 3 boys and 2 girls.
As soon as Dallas learned what caused the kids, they had no more. ;-).
Sherry & I have shared a wonderful
life. My girl is still the most beautiful and the sweetest woman in the world.
I still love her to pieces after 67 years.
PS: I appreciate your time.. Makes us feel good to know you were here,….
