Grand nephew Brad is visiting for the summer from Lake Havasu and we really enjoyed the Marine Command Museum at MCRD. The historical displays are professional and we even learned about the local names of Gillespie and Pendleton. Col Mike Lee Ret is the museum foundation ex. director and I introduced him to Brad. He proudly explained the Marine core values and ended with the right words, talk to a recruiter! Afterward, we walked to the parade deck and caught some of the graduation and talked with 2 D.I’s. Pride and courage at MCRD!
