Nice! I knew all four of them, although you've misspelled two of their names -- Joe Balsis and Frank McGown.

Balsis got $2500.
Average Cost of a new car$2,750.00
So really a nice payday for that time.
I was making about $150 month in the Marine Corps.

Yes but the $150.00/month was spend money.

Things like room, food, uniforms, medical, dental,we provided by your Uncle Sam.

Plus 30 days a year paid vacation 😃.

Well looking back on military, it was interesting adventure.

Good friend just could not get separated from Military.

After 35 year active, and reserves he retired as a CEO.

Pension is nice from military, and phone company. Plus social security. TRIPLE DIPPER.
