I had several claims with an old WWII/Korean War marine vet. Mr. Love. He was a super nice guy. He fought on Iwo Jima. He had a photo and a story about Korean war that was pretty special. Marilyn Monroe was scheduled to do a USO show at the base he was at. He was up at the mess tent drinking coffee by himself when he heard the chopper come in. A short time later Marilyn walked in and sat down and drank coffee with him! He had a photo taken at the time. I almost felt like I had met her myself.
