10 November 2008

Rene Gagnon USMC

New Hampshire's Rene Gagnon was part of the 6 men that make up the Iwo Jima Memorial in Washington D.C. based of the famous Rosenthal photo from the Pacific Campaign of World War II. Since today is the 10th of November , the official recognized birthday of the Marine Corps, I thought I would highlight Gagnon, a New England Yankee and fellow devil dog.

My favorite 10 November was three years ago when Master Gunnery Sergeant Frank Cordero retired with thirty years at Camp Lejune’s 2nd Tank Battalion.

Semper Fidelis Frank and Rene.
