Lock, Stock, and History
A platoon of US Marines poses with their Springfield rifles, Parris Island, 1932.
The Marine at the far left end of the top row is my great uncle Frank (short for Francesco).  Born in Italy he emigrated to the United States while an infant with my great grandparents in 1900.  In 1917 he enlisted in the Army and fought in World War I.  He continued his career in the military as a peacetime soldier until he was honorably discharged in 1928.  In 1932 he enlisted in the Marine Corps, serving as a guard on the USS Arkansas.  His career as a Marine lasted from 1932 until 1936.  He passed away in the early 1990’s, living to a very old age.
