my grandfather was in europe,his toe nails were all bent and his feet looked like hell and had a fungus like jock itch on steroids. After he died we went through his papers and found,a 21 day mia pin.His best friend ,a Marine in the pacific,told me he was at Anzio.Great photo! One of my grandfather's friends was a Raider. I knew he was in the Marines during WWII but never knew he was a Raider until my local paper did an article about him about 15 years ago. He got all kinds of medals and was with the Raiders from their inception until the end of the war. This guy still looked like he could beat down most men when he was in his 70's and it was awesome to find out that he was the real deal. He passed away about 5 years ago but never talked about his experiences except for that newspaper article.
