ROLL CALL! (Read 3047 times)

Oct 04th, 2004, 1:43am
Many years ago, in Seaside, CA, I had the honor of being accepted into a group of veterans all of whom, like my father, were members of the "old" Philippine Scouts. There were many gatherings with the group and as a 22-yr old Marine Cpl at the time. I always enjoyed the backyard beer busts and barbecues, and always the tale swapping.  They called these gatherings "muster" and will always be preceeded by a roll call.

I recently visited Seaside and would like to share the results of the latest roll call, which although SSgt GUZMAN reported ALL PRESENT OR ACCOUNTED FOR, one can't help but notice open spaces in the ranks.
