Paris Island

Postby tomfen » Sun Feb 16, 2014 9:19 pm

I don't believe there's been a posting about a get together in April for Fox Co Marines.

So here it is...........4/10/14 to 4/13/14 at the Hilton Garden Inn, Beauford SC.
The PI base is located nearby. A trip on to the base is planned.............yellow footprints anyone?

Bill Taylor & Phil Franklin are the driving force behind this gathering. Kudos to both.

Of course, all 2/9ers are welcome.

As a follow up.........The April get together in Beaufort SC was attended by 27 (or more) men from Fox Co. In addition there were wives, friends, sons, nephews, and the occasional passer-by who could recognize that a good time was being had by all. Bill Taylor made arrangements with the PI Base for a tour, a graduation ceremony, and lunch at the officers club. Thanks Bill.
Two Officers and a corpsman were among the attendees. Corpsman are hard to find..........this was a great time. 45+ years have passed for some....finally.
It's good for the soul.
Attached is a pic or two........
