    Book Review:

    All I can say!

    This is an outstanding book and belongs on every Marine bookshelf, Ray combines his letters back home with his narrative and photographs to paint a vivid picture of his service in World War II. Ray has amazing recall of events, and his descriptions of combat are honest and straightforward. Unlike many wartime memoirs, Ray also tells of the story of him and his buddies between operations giving us a window into their world in camp and aboard ship.

    There are so many campaign studies, coffee table books, web sites, books designed to profit off TV programs, uniform guides and so on. But every once in a while, a book comes along that just tells a story that needs to be told, "My Three Years in the Marine Corps" is that kind of book.

    Book Review by K.K., LCpl.

    All I Can Say About Ray's Book is:

    Gets right to the matter of things, it gives a perspective on the war and love between two people as well as their families. My 18 year old daughter read it the day I got it from Ray. It made a heck of an impression on her and she found out there are people just like us behind the lines so to speak. it should be required reading for kids, it gives a great insight, and has for myself. It was very enlightening. Thank you Ray.

    Anyone know where to purchase a "Pleats" shirt? When I was in, they made shirts for the A and B uniforms. The plus to the "Pleats" shirts was that they were tapered a little so that they always looked neat.

    I never could afford them when I was in the Corps. They weren't that expensive, but buying one would seriously cut into my beer, cigarettes and Carne Asada burritos funds.

    I've wanted to buy a few for work these days in the office, but I don't know where they sell them.

    Try Googling "Pleats" and you come up with about a billion hits of crap.

    Book Review from Cpl R.K:
    "I just finished reading Ray Merrell's book: 'My Three Years in the Marine Corps'. This is a must have and must read book. Without revealing too much and giving away his story, it is a book that gives us younger Marines an insight of why Mr. Merrell's generation is known as "The Greatest Generation". While our Marines were battling the Japanese in the Pacific, their families were home backing the war effort. Still, there were problems with strained commitments and uncertainties. With the war dragging on as it did, many Marines found themselves growing restless and uncertain of their future after spending years away from their loved ones in a theater of war that was often violent and savage. In between the combat the Marines would train for the next beach invasion where a lot of anxiety would take place because of them not knowing what they would be up against and if this would be their final combat so that they could return home. While all this was on their minds, they worried also if their wives and girl friends would still be faithfull and waiting for their safe return after being away from them for years. This reminded me of my Vietnam tour of duty and helped me relate to Mr. Merrell's story. Oh, how those letters were so important from home when you're cut off from the homeland because of no telephones, internet, or even news from home via television. It's just you and your buddies and those all important letters from home. s/F
