    LH, I'm a little dense on this one.... can you solve the mystery of who this man is?

    Obviously a Marine, looking like WWII era, probably WWII ribbons..... that's all I got.

    He is the epitome of No Greater Friend, and No Worse Enemy. The Boogie Man stays awake at night fearing this guy.

    Very handsome young man. Korea was a very bloody campaign for our Marines. Where was he deployed or what battles was he involved with, if I may ask?
