but our <a href="http://glorious">glorious</a> & renowned Marine Corps wasn't there ....

<a href="http://Jus">Jus</a>t received my 2005 Legacy Set & like it! Course I am a lawyer (Chief <a href="http://Jus">Jus</a>tice Marshall Silver Dollar) & a military history buff (Marine Corps 230th Silver Dollar). The "bookshelf" lists several of the Corps' <a href="http://famous">famous</a> battles: Iwo Jima, <a href="http://Guadalca">Guadalca</a>nal, Tarawa, Trenton, but DIEN BIEN PHU? That was the defeat of the French Union forces in 1954 by General Giap & the Viet Minh, later known as the Viet Cong. How did that one slip by the proofreaders @ the Mint? The Corps didn't "wade ashore" in Viet Nam until the mid-sixties.
