View Full Version : Looking for Marine Corp Yearbook

I'm trying to find the Marine Corp yearbook that my dad was in. I'm not sure what year or platoon number he was in but it could have been between 1968 and 1973 in Parris Island. His name was Ron Broll and he fought in Vietnam as either a door gunner or sharpshooter. I don't know if anyone out there knew him but if you have a yearbook between those years could you possibly look him up and see if he's in there and let me know what platoon and year he was there so I can try to order a yearbook please. He lost his yearbook when I was a kid but I remember looking through it and would like to get another one to go along with the flag I recieved at his funeral a few months ago to remember him by.

Thank You!

So I called my mom and she thinks my dad was in Parris Island in 1968 or 1969. He was 19 when he joined the Marines. I still don't know what platoon he was in though. Would anyone know of a way I could find this information? I also updated my profile for everyone and have a picture too.

ask your mom if she has your fathers dd214 or any records of his service or even some photos like a graduation photo good luck an semper fi

If you mom does not have a copy of his dd-214 then his next of kin should be able to request to have one sent. At least having that information could help you narrow down where to begin searching and what time frame.

Thanks for the replys and letting me know about that form. My mom should have those papers somewhere since she had to do tons of paperwork to get my dad on disability. If not then I will see if I can order them. Thanks again!

I found out that my dad went to Parris Island on April 8th, 1969 then got sent to Vietnam. He was a sharpshooter and worked on helicopters too. So I was just wondering if anyone was at Parris Island during that time. Maybe you knew him. Let me know. It would be great to hear from you.

If you go to the following link, about 1/4 the way down the right side of the page there is a phone number to order platoon photos clear back to 1939. I don't know if they can help. You might have to know is platoon number.

Shauna,
If you want to get more of your fathers records on military service, you can go to the web site posted below. This is the veterans records section of the National Personnel Records Center. This will not help you find a boot camp book, but it could be beneficial to you if you want to apply for any service related benefits that your father rated.

I'm sure I'll be able to find a yearbook and even a platoon photo now that I have all the paperwork and some phone numbers.

This may be a bit unothodoxed, but now that you know his graduation date, you could try Ebay. I'm not really an Ebayer, but I think there's a way you can request certain items as well.
Also, I used to work for Ancestrydotcom and we gathered lots of yearbooks from Ebay and other sources for scanning and displaying on the website, so that might be another option, you should be able to search for specific information, and it will show you if they have anything, currently I know they have Marine Corps Muster rolls from the turn of the century, I don't think they go all the way to Vietnam, but they might by now. If they do have something you want to see, you'll probably have to pay to see it.
Hope this helps!

I still have a year book from 1970. I saw it on E-bay and bought it. I did this for the hell of it. It is for 3rd Btln Plt 3076. I have it in safe keeping. I graduated from PI in 1970. So if anyone knows a Marine from that Plt and they want the year book,just have them PM me and I will send it to them free of charge.

I also, mailed a letter to the address, and they sent a latter back telling me they could not help me, and gave me another address to a book store in NC I never heard from that store.

I then tired the phone number listed there was no answer on several occasions.

I guess what I'm saying is do we really know this PI info is really working !

Hello, my first post here. I learned about the USMC museum being able to produce a platoon photo from Basic training graduation and got excited. The "catch" is, you have to have the platoon number from that graduation. So...My Dad graduated from basic on 7 March 1942...part of the "abbreviated" version (began basic on 26 Jan. 42) of 6 weeks because of the war.

So, if there is a chance in a million that anyone else had a relative that graduated San Diego Marine basic on this dqate as well, and you have either the platoon # or year book, maybe you could lend a hand with info. that could lead to finding out my Dad's platoon #. Thank you so much, -Chuck

I am looking to surprise a friend on his 40th Birthday with his 1990 MCRD Parris Island yearbook. He was in Plt. 2098, 2nd Battalion. Graduation was either in Aug. or Sept. 1990.
I have found books online that have 27 Apr. 1990 to 22 June 1990 & 28 Dec, 1990 to 15 Mar. 1991 on them but nothing that covers the date he graduated. I didn't know if the dates were in reference to the date you entered into boot camp or the date they graduated...Thanks So Much for All of Your Help & Any Information You Give Me to Help Locate This Book!!!

I am a former Women Marine and have lost all photos and my graduation yearbook. I was in Platoon 1A in 1979 at MCRDPI. SDI was SSGT Tallian, DI was SSGT Frakes. I was in the first platoon to get Cammies and combat boots! Any help finding my book and any photos of my platoon would be greatly appreciated.
