So Steve,
what would it take to get copies of your platoon picture and book?We'd like to add them to our database?

Steve N 08-18-2011 07:00 AM

I could send them to you and you could copy them? Then send them back? I'm a techno idiot so any fancy work is out of my league!!

e-mail me where you want them sent and I'll get them off to you -

Looking for any Marine who had the honor of having Charles H. Padilla as their Drill Instructor. After serving nearly 30 years, he has retired and his ceremony will be in November, and hopefully on the 10th.
Should you have any photos from your platoon books or during graduation ceremony, I would appreciate a copy. Or if you have any stories about you and him while in boot camp.

Thanks and Semper Fi:GI8:

Gary, accordingn to the profile Regina(jeannieb5 she is a Family meber looking for info about her brother.
from her 1 Oct, 2011 posting "I am looking for my brothers pic he graduated in 1971 platoon 1025 first battalion his SDI was SSGT eather spelled Connant or Conant his name is Kevin Kennedy." and her answer to your question at that time about which Depot He trained at, was Parris Island. Agreed, I think she should repeat the info each time she asks about Kevin. I wonder if the '52' in her user-id relates to AirForce time w/B-52 Bombers??????

S/F and carry on.

jeannieb52 10-09-2011 09:26 AM

i'm looking for grad book 1970 kevin kennedy first battalion 1025 parris island. I'm not sure of the month.
No the 52 in my sign in name has nothing to do with the airforce b-52s but i have been told that i am like a bomber when i'm mad,ha ha ha, meaning i can clear a house fast.
I am a proud family member of a bunch of marines, my uncle was in korea,wounded 90 % of his body was hit with shapnal, my oldest brother is a vietnam vet, another brother also a marine,ex-hubbie,son-in-law,niece and so on.
my husbend a proud Navy man also in vietnam.
My grandmother was in the navy in 1918 and her sister was in the army, a great uncle who died in ww1 france.
needless to say i am very proud of them all and am tring to find out as much as i can.
god bless you all for your service ot our country.

you should contact a vets group and get help contacting the records center in st. louis. request a copy of your SRB ( service record book). some of the pages will have your platoon number on it. will also have a list of all your outfits while on active duty.
