U.S. Marines Assult On St. Louis!

Marine Week 13

So here's what's up: it's Marine Week in St. Louis. The U. S. Marine Corps is putting on a six-day show in our town. I think it's about recruitment and public relations. Can't imagine why they need the latter: they are held in very high esteem in this country. They have had displays of all sorts of equipment downtown, seen in the last few posts. I learned that they did this over the last two years in Chicago and Boston.

The big event was yesterday, a mock assault on the Arch grounds by air, sea and land. Regardless of your thoughts about the military, it was a great show. This is a tiny sample of the squillion pictures I took. More on the way when I edit them.

Marines float like a butterfly and sting like a bee on Downtown St. Louis 365.
