 Greetings,  

     

     What a strange time for everyone..... wear your masks, wash your hands and be safe.  We have been in bigger battles and we will win this one also!

     As we see breaks in the clouds, small meetings will be taking place along with talks of future activities.  We can continue to stay in contact with our smart phones, computers, video chat, and good old-fashioned email.  All this will work until we can get back together with fellow Marines and friends.

     I was having a little kidney stone and stent problem, but am now doing much better.  See you all as soon as I can.

     Upcoming events:

            The Vietnam Veterans of America, Clark County Salmon Creek Chapter #512 is hosting a "Car Wash Fundraiser" at Fox's Car Wash, 8200 NE Hwy 99, Vancouver, WA 98665 on 26 September 2020 from 0900 to 1800.  They need our help for this endeavor, so if you wish to volunteer, please contact Ron Brandon at 360-721-4310 or email him at donnaronb@comcast.net.

Our Emblem, our Flag, our Swords and our Uniforms are all symbols that represent our illustrious history and our elite warrior ethos.  These symbols connect today's Marines to the entire lineage of "Warriors" who, since 1775, have earned their places in this country's history as the Few, the Proud, the Marines.
