4th Marine Regiment PME in Corregidor 2017

 

Today's young generation of the 4th Marine Regiment conducted a Battle Sight Tour to the Philippines in commemoration of the 75th Anniversary of the Battle of Corregidor on 6 May 2017. Marines of 4th Marine
Regiment spent two days hiking around the island, crawling through tunnels, seeing the remnants of the old defensive positions, and learning about their history and heritage on the island. “We brought 40 Marines down
from Okinawa under the 4th Marines and studied the history, crawled through the caves, and commemorated the anniversary with the ceremony today,” Norton said. “We feel privileged to honor the Marines of today and yesterday who fought under the 4th Marines.” The 4th Marine Regiment is known as "The Oldest and the Proudest" and is based in Camp Schwab, Okinawa, Japan. Their commanding officer is Col. Kevin A. Norton.

NOTE: It's best for the potential donor to call the Blood Bank before going as each Blood Bank has its criteria. For instance, some will say "no meds" and some have a binder with acceptable meds. And then it's finally up to the Physician to clear the donor. They may have more criteria then their staff. But it's best to call and not waste time going there quickly.
