On June 12th, we had the privilege to provide this exhibit for the Corpsmen of the United States Navy stationed at Great Lakes Navel Base celebrating their 117th Birthday. I was also honored to celebrate and enjoy a meal with them. As a former member of the United State Marine Corps, I appreciate the work the corpsmen do.
Our exhibit consisted of World War Two equipment, uniforms, personal item and photos that were used by Marine and Corpsmen in the Pacific Theater of War. During their calibration they did a flag razing as depicted in the now famous Marine Crops Monument in Washington D.C. On of the young men who raised the flag on Mt. Suribachi was a Corpsman John Bradley who was from Wisconsin. For this re-enactment Historic Military Impressions provided a 48 Star, United Sates Flag and staff.
The guest speaker was nay Corpsmen, (PhM2c) Donald Eugene Horschler was served with the SeaBee’s during the war.
Historic Military Impressions was requested to provide an exhibit for the 118th Hospital Corps Ball next year.
