  • A remarkable Kentucky character,

    Colonel George Morgan Chinn (1902-1987)

    While visiting my Marine Corps Reserve unit in Frankfort, Kentucky, I met a remarkable individual, Colonel George Morgan Chinn, U. S. Marine Corps Reserve. I was impressed to learn that he was the author of the Encyclopedia Britannica’s entries for both “Daniel Boone” and “Machine guns.” He was a nationally prominent designer and inventor of military weapons, especially machine guns.

  • In this duty assignment in Philadelphia, I had command over the reserve units and recruitment stations in the states of Ohio, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Delaware.

    Marine Corps Headquarters, unaware as yet of my performance of duty as Chief of Staff of the 2nd Marine Division at Camp Lejeune a month before, would have considered it unlikely that I would be promoted and that this would be my final duty station before retirement.
