My old squad
Torrington is in the back. I can name most of the guys. I am in the front at bottom of the picture with dark hair (grey now!). CPL Kesecker is without shirt. He was the departing squad leader then I took over after NCO School in Okinawa in Dec 67. Some of the other guys are Franklin, Solis, Hurst, Disbrow (funny looking guy making a face. We called him nightowl. I was told he was a career marine!) Joe McNinch, Sparky Offerman(?) et al.
(Editor note: See Sparky Opferman's letter home elsewhere on this site..click on his name to go there).
