I must say, those 7 1/8 covers are hard to come by these days. Seems like everyone wears that size. Our uniform shop is constantly sold out of them and they are always on back order due to come in next Thursday as they always tell me. Lol.

I am looking for a guide book for Marines it had a red cover and was issued in the early 60's. It had a section on the 3.5 rocket a picture at the start of the section showed 2 Marines in the snow with the rocket. The A-Gunner was myself and the Gunner was a Marine by the name of Hammon. After 3 wivies and several moves I have lost by book, would like to get one to pass on to my son and grandson. Thanks for any help. Semper Fi Fmoyer
Moyer, I'll keep my eyes open for one for you. My first suggestion would be to try ebay and see what comes up. I've found Guidebooks on there for reasonable prices. Patience is the key.

Thanks for the information will call Heritage Press when I get home from work and also check E-Bay or have my son do it for me. Computer skills I do not have. Thanks again for the information as it has become more important the older I get.
you say we can only post if marines however I was a marine and a corpsman so should be able to post but my posts are being deleted.
How and where? Not by me. Also, if you were a Marine, you should know that it's a capital letter in front of it! LOL
