    Hi Ray,
    I am also wondering where is the best place to purchase your book from. Thanks and Semper Fi!

    Ray, from where can I buy your book? I would like very much to read it. My Dad was a Navy Fighter Pilot in the Pacific during WWII. I am retired now after a few conflicts of my own as first an Army, then a USMC attack helicopter pilot. As you well know, your legacy and that of your fellow Marines is something we younger Marines treasure. Semper Fidelis, Mike (my e-mail: ironmike775@gmail.com)

    Thank you for your service, my grand father Vernon Leroy Bryant was a Marine, god rest his soul. He was from your era. Never got the chance to meet him. He died a couple of weeks before my birth. Veterans like you, and him make me proud to have been given the chance to earn the title. By god I will not let you down sir! Have a great night.

    Hey Ray....
    I saw your 'End of an era' thread on *the other site*....I remember every show you mentioned although I wasn't one for Kapt Kangaroo or similar stuff.
    Me, my interest was 'if bad guys die, I was interested'.
    I thought I would add The Range Rider, Have Gun/Will Travel.
    Have a good weekend.
    Stay tough.

    Wow Devil Dog, You have some good friends. Wish I were closer so I could shake your hand and thank you personally for serving. You and your wife look great together. You make a good couple.

    Ray, I think you and my Dad where in the same unit. He was with the 6th Marine div. but with 1st Marine Prov. 3rd Rad. Blt. He was with L/3/4 when he lost his leg on Okanawa.
  10. Wow Ray, what an outstanding display of your USMC career. Thank you so much for sharing.
