Hi, I’m not a Marine or a member of the Shamrocks but I found a picture for my buddy John Swisher
of his Commanding Officer. The picture has the story with it. John you should share your picture. When I made Johns Quilt of Valor besides putting the USS
America picture on his quilt he also wanted his Commanding Officer picture that I found for him on his quilt too. I can’t remember what John said the names were. When I came across the picture and the story I thought it was pretty neat. I found all of Johns military patches but one. I’ve never found his patch when he was on the Mediterranean Cruise.
