RIP __ Larry Ashton

Many in the Recon pipeline may not know Larry. He was one of those selected by the Corps in 58 to help reorganize 2d Bn. He and I shared many of our activities during that time as I was selected out of ITR the summer of 60 to join the BN. At that time the BN only had 2 companies. He was very active with the Marine Corps League at J'ville. Will be missed at this year's Association meeting the end of June.

Semper Fi Brother, you will be missed but us old farts are getting up in years.
