PROUD FRATERNITY: Leatherneck Coffee Club Breckfast held Saturday
Mouse Loy, left, and Don Shearer, right, talk about old times at the Leatherneck Coffee Club Breakfast Saturday in the Columbia City VFW in Columbia City. Shearer is wearing a uniform that is similar to his original “satine” Marine uniform he wore in Vietnam in 1963. Twenty-six Whitley County marines attended the event. Loy eats from his original mess kit and drinks coffee from his military-issued canteen cup. The group has a chicken barbecue fundraiser scheduled for May 19 at Wal-Mart and NAPA, both located in Columbia City.
