This Golden Anniversary edition covers the 50 crucial years from 1916, when Congress first authorized a Marine Corps Reserve, to 1966 when the 4th Marine Division/Aircraft Wing Team is an integral part of the muscle of American armed strength.

About Catherine: I have been writing frugal tips since 1982, when I was a young divorced mom of two - for my baby product company, Born to Love. I am now mom to three sons, who are all grown up, grandma to three - and happily re-married to a wonderful man. We have rescued two little dogs, Denny and Dexter - and a cat, Bella.
