Exclamation Stolen Graduation Book

My suitcase was stolen from me on Camp Pendleton about 9 years ago. One of its contents was my red Graduation Book. I've been trying to replace it for years. I was on Parris Island from January 6th to April 2nd in 2004. I was in the 4th Recruit Training Battalion, Papa Company, Platoon 4009. If anyone can help me, I would greatly appreciate it. Semper Fidelis.

There is currently a pltn 232 SD yearbook for sale on ebay.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/Marine-Corps...E:B:SS:US:1123

I don't know the year but by the cover it looks like it might be early 60's. You need to contact the seller to see if your name is in the book.

Please let YFP know if this is your book. We always like it when we can help a Marine find his book.

Good luck.

It's in bad shape but I'll try and clean it up. I just scanned the page with my picture on it and it came out okay.
Do you want just the back part dealing with my Platoon first?

Yes the pages we scan are from the DI page back. The pages from the front of the book to the DI page are pretty much generic for about every 10 year period.

Congratulations Marine Parker

Another great day in returning history….
Congratulations go out to William Parker of Charlotte, NC for finding his graduation book at Yellow Footprints. Who says we can’t return history….this is proof we can.

You can see Williams Series 2052 at the following link:

I hear ya brother. My book was destroyed in a home plumbing incident back in the 1990s. I've been looking for a replacement for at least 15 years along with books for another couple of Marines. Nada.

However, while looking for members of my boot camp platoon, I eventually found all four of my Drill Instructors and one of them gave me his copy a year or so before he died. I guess the Drill Instructors get a copy from each platoon they train.

It's my opinion that the top two reasons a book becomes available is a marriage gone wrong with an angry, vindictive spouse or another old Marine reports for heavenly guard duty. Both are pretty sad.

15 years ago when I started looking for my platoon book on eBay, I became interested in the changing cover designs and started saving a picture from each year at both the Recruit Depots. The first two are the earliest ones I've seen from San Diego. Both from 1952

The Parris Island date of 1950 is correct. The book shown here is from 1950 2nd Bn. I didn't record the platoon. The blue book is from 1948. It's a "Boot Pictorial". In my opinion, a precursor to the Platoon Books.

Other than ebay, below are a couple of places to look for yearbooks.
The inventory changes everyday so you have to check frequently.
Also, the vendors often do not put either the date or the platoon number in their ads. If you search for a specific yearbook you might miss your book. It is better (but more work) to put in a broad search term....you will get more results but you will have to sort through them to find a specific book. You might also have to contact the seller to see if it is your book. Most sellers will respond.

For the below links I searched "Marine Corps recruit depot". There are multiple results from these 2 searches.

I am still looking for my grad book...MCRD PI Plt#339. 7 JUL 1961 to Sept 1961. CO's name was 1st Lt Silvers, HDI was SSgt Rushing, ADI's were Sgts Fox, Philips, Long. Was told that 1961 records were destroyed by fire. However I did see that someone had listed Plt#337 from that series #336. To Administrators, I'm 70 now but as I had discussed with you earlier, was going to get spinal surgery before I lost any more use of arms, hands, etc. Seems the fall that broke my back in four places will on duty years ago (T11-12; L1 & 2) smash a couple in my neck. All is fused and I'm recovering wearing full hard neck brace and then a soft collar. I just wish I could shorten the search for my book to give my Marine son before I pass. Do have a step grandson at Lejeune now and and a second shipping out to PI Jun this year (2015). Got to admit, we keep in the family, the best for the best. Any body, Please help. Semper Fi...God Bless all you brothers and sisters.
