My Four Years in the Marines


Frank Verkest, born in 1917, father of three, grandfather of eight and great grandfather of thirteen, resides in Buckhead Ridge, Florida, just southwest of the city of Okeechobee. Frank is known for his great love of God and family. In 1936, after graduating from High School in Antioch, Illinois, knowing his family had no money for him to pursue an education, he joined the Marine Corps, whose motto was “Join the Marines and get an education.” His last duty in the Marine Corps introduced him to Marcie, thus beginning the “sixty-nine-year love story” of our dad and mom. When we found his handwritten memoirs of his tour of duty in the Marine Corps (1936-1940), we felt this great treasure needed to be bound and preserved for our family and future generations. With gratitude we lovingly dedicate this book and prayer to our father and mother, Frank and Marcie. Joyce, Jerry and Russell. The following is “Dad’s Prayer,” composed by Dad and offered daily for many years. We do thank you, Lord, for the many blessings that you have given us; And we pray that you continue to watch over us and our families with good health and safety; And for our friends and relation that have serious problems, please guide them through their problems. We ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen.
