Christmas Dinner Menu December 25, 1943

Merry Christmas to the Sherlock Clan.

Joanie found this in her Dad's papers.  It was the actual menu from MCRD PISC
(Marine Corps Recruit Depot Parris Island, SC)

Not sure on the travel of this menu.  Did it got to the Pacific with Jerry?  Did he send it home.

Well either way it was a perfect condition.

Merry Christmas

Much time has passed.

The Marine Corps Birthday has come and gone.

Ed Malloy who organized the Task Force to produce the Honored event for Marines young and old was taken ill.

Two years ago Ed was conducting a motorcycle escort with the Providence Police and was struck by a vehicle.

Unknown to him a lesson developed as a result and grew.  When the President of the United States made an official visit to Providence Ed was in the forefront of this event.  In between, he was making final checks for the Marine Corps Dinner.

While enroute with POTUS from TF Green Airport, the lesion burst while leading the motorcade to Providence.   Ed was bleeding internally.  Unknown to anyone.   Ed completed the mission with the President.  Upon arrival to the Omni Hotel, Ed collapsed and was rushed to RI Hospital.    He underwent Emergency surgery to stop the bleeding

Ed missed the Marine Corps Birthday Dinner for the first time.

He underwent surgery last week to repair the damage.  He is in Rhode Island Hospital recuperating.

Ed had a special relationship with Jerry Sherlock.  Jerry was held in awe by Ed and other Marines.
Jerry was their Senior Marine.  A Marine of WWII and combat survivor of Iwo Jima.

We here wish Ed Malloy, his wife Ellie and their children the very best.

Please keep Ed in your prayers when you have a moment.

Semper Fi.
