Looking for Help

Trying to find some information on my dad who has past away. I think he graduated from MCRD Parris Island August 16, 1952. If anyone knows what platoons my have graduated that day I would be very grateful. He was a great guy and I believe that being a Marine had something to do with it.

I'm sorry but unless you have some kind of information like his Platoon number or his DD-214 and his name theirs not much we can do.
you see they used Platoon number over and over in the Marine Corps.
In one year they may use lets say Platoon 114 two or three time that year. I know for sure mine was used at least 4 time over the years from 62 to 73 I have four Platoon books with Platoon 114.

If you want you may fellow this link and see what you can get from them they are the end all to be all for records to receive.

I can't gaurtee you results but it's a start. I wish you luck and God speed in finding out anything

Hey I want you too email this guy. He has access to thousands of Platoon books and photos also,and see if he can get his hands on them or not OK.
His name is Mike Thomas and he's in charge of 1st., 2nd. & 3rd. Battalion History and Platoon Books and photos I believe.

I checked the pictures in the 1952 graduation books that I have and I did not come across your father's name.

55,

I we already have the listing of books for the Parris Island trainiing battalions. Some of these battalion's are not being released do to the amount of on-hand support. There are NO personel availible to anwser phone's or emails. It's unfortunate they don't have the manpower to catalog, and search for these books.

after some more research I have found out that my father was in platoon 134. He stared book camp on Feb. 29th 1952. Does anyone know if this platoon was active during this time. If so then he would have graduated in May 1952.

Chuck,

I've created your dad's platoon section in our database along with a personal section that lists under his platoon number. This personal section which you can view at the following link is where I've posted your email address for a point of contact.

http://www.yellowfootprints.com/year...y.php?cat=1636

Let me know if there is anything else we can do for you.
