HERE COME THE MARINES!

DISCOVERING OUR VALLEY   2011

I guess being envious is a useful thing when it comes for me getting things done for our Museum. Aside from geographic locator programs, there is a facial recognition program available out there in cyberspace as well.  Here's a priceless photograph taken of rough and ready Marines, sometime between World War I and the Second World War. Wouldn't it be great to use facial recognition to find our who these heroes were.
I used photo processing to figure out that they were members of the United States Marine Corps. Maybe one of you clever people can figure out what unit would have worn a star with an Indian chief in it?
