[From Marine Corps Quotes published in "Leatherneck - Magazine of the Marines"]
Well, we just had chow and now we are going to draw some new uniforms and believe me, they are some swell. Got it all over any uniform I have ever seen. Can't hardly wait till I get a chance to wear them on liberty. Forest green and patch pockets.
Pvt Leonard D. Philo 6th Regiment, 2dDiv from June 22, 1917 to July 19, 1918

I wouldn't miss the things I have seen since I joined the Marine Corps for anything.
Pvt Leonard D. Philo 6th Regiment, 2dDiv from June 22, 1917 to July 19, 1918

All I can bring back with me is the memory and believe me, that is enough. The quicker I can get home and get settled down and forget this, as much as possible, the better I will be satisfied. The forgetting part is impossible though. I haven't seen very much, but I sure have seen more than I want to see again. Civilian clothes will be good enough for me for the rest of my life.
Pvt Leonard D. Philo 6th Regiment, 2dDiv from June 22, 1917 to July 19, 1918

I hear we rate the Croix la [sic] Guerre on our regimental flag, but don't know how true that is. Anyway, the Marines are doing their share. I heard the Germans call us the devil dogs, but that probably is hot air."
