    Happy Thanksgiving from the Quinn family!
  4. Ah Hah!!! Oso (which in Spanish means "Bear") togary recognized the pond ice in the background of this shot. Note also the dry suit, since wet suits were too expensive to buy for us Recon types. The pic shows the inner harbor at Kodiak in January, 1950, in which I was about to try my Brown Lung (another antiquated piece of crap because the Corps didn't have the money to buy us Scubas). The Brown Lung was an oxygen rebreather good down to about 40' according to the school I'd been to at Coronodo. The problem was that in 28 degree water the damned valves froze. Did I mention that we (crew and passengers aboard APD 125 Wantuck) had depth charged and probably sank at least one midget submarine the night before we tried out our equipment. But the sub story is one that I'll tell only if it's asked for.... Salute! Semper Fidelis, Sully

    What's missing from this picture, in the background, is a ravenous, charging polar bear. The hands would no longer be on the hips. LMAO

    You mispelled "Occifer." It's "Ossifer," damn it. Don't they teach u knew recruits nothin when you go through boot camp. Or did you go through San Diego? If so, that explains a bunch.

    With you in Alice and myself and bride in Goliad there ought to be someplace we'uns can get together and swap lies. You and yours are hereby invited to Marine Barracks, Goliad at any time it's convenient to you and can give us'uns a day or so to roast the fatted calf....or cabrito....or whatever.

    Seriously, I do love Marines and at my advanced age consider any and all my Brothers, or Grandsons, or whatever. My telephone number is 361/645-8044 and would enjoy talking to you. Semper Fiddleysticks, Sully


    Not presently in Alice. Wyoming.

    Cabrito, WOW. Brings back memories. My folks lived on the Nueces River and Dad would get a young Mexican goat each spring. He would tie it out down by the river bank and let it eat weeds and poison ivy. At the end of summer, the goat was fatted up and ready to butcher. Sumbish was cooked all day over mesquite.
