This is my first shadowbox-scrapbook combo. My son Josh was awarded the Silver Army R.C Medal. Since he is going into the Marine Corps (only Army ROTC at his college) he can't wear it. I put this together for him to hang on his dorm room wall.
Baseball Great Sgt Gil Hodges US Marine Corps (Served 1943-1946) Short Bio: Life for Hodges soon took a drastically different turn once World War II broke out. Having served as a member of the Marines ROTC program at St. Joseph’s, he had to give up playing baseball and soon went into battle at Tinian and Okinawa for the U.S. Marine Corps. He garnered many accolades for honorable service, including earning a bronze star before his discharge in 1946.
