Random postcards from a National Guard Blackhawk crew chief.

We went on a photo trip to Monument Valley recently, during which we met Morris. Morris was a Corpsman (medic) with the 22nd Marines for the the invasion of Guam and after they were moved into the 6th Marine Division the invasion of Okinawa, where he lost a leg. He went on to be a successful businessman in the chemical industry and for his upcoming 90th birthday decided to treat himself to a rather strenuous 5 day photography workshop. He was fun company and we had some great discussions with him during the week. I hope I'm half as sharp and active when I reach 90. Hell, even reaching 90 is an accomplishment.
