My brother Louis was my inspiration and the reason why I joined the US Marine Corps in 1966. Here is a picture from when he came home from Marine Corps Bootcamp in Parris Island, SC. As you look at the picture, to the right side of my brother is me wearing the same hat as our dog Queenie on the ground in front of my brother.
