Anyone ever heard about The Emblems?A group of five Marine singers from the late 50's or early 60's.There's a PC of them up for auction overseas.

I served in the USMC at a corporal, 0351,B/1/1/1,Camp Pendleton. My wife and I attended a concert, so to speak, at the outdoor theater, San Oonofre, 1963, with the Everly brothers as entertainers. It was outstanding. I reentered the USMCR, retiring as a 1stSgt with 23 years service. I still miss the Corps!!!

They bring artists, including some of the artists of that time the top of Roch n roll and pop music. I remember the sugar time warping is a top hit.

I heard that Lee Marvin and Steve Mcqueen served in the Marine Corps. I can't prove it just heard and never read about it.

I was in the Marines '66-'69 and was a Corporal in the 3rd Bn 3rd Marines 3rd Div, Viet Nam, 1968.
With Regards to you Marines who were at ITR with the Everly Brothers, I'd like to know exactly when they put on their concert. Was it during ITR or at the completion of ITR?

Yes to all the above. I was in platoon 303 at MCRD and the Everlys were in 301. We all went to ITR at San Onofre after boot camp. Later, I was in the 11 Marines in Pendleton when one they did their yearly active duty. One and I recall that the brothers did not join by themselves but joined with someone from their band. There I had the opportunity to play Phil Everly's Gretch guitar for a few minutes...good memory!

Everly Brothers another pair of famous Marines? I never knew that - pretty cool!
I've always liked them, even if I'm a little younger than most of their fans. Just plain great music. And finding out they were fellow Reserve Marines?
