Those of you Marines that were still on active duty with us from about 1994-1996 may remember a hard charger by the name of Corporal Michael Cohan. He came to Weapons Platoon as a 0351 Assaultman from the Silent Drill Platoon, Marine Barracks at 8th and I. If my memory serves me correctly, he and his gunner would typically attached to 3rd Platoon.
This day 2 years ago, 46 year old Mike and his rifle spinning talents were reassigned to guard the Pearly Gates. As mentioned in a previous post, he is survived by his wife Elissa of nearly 20 years and their 2 sons Brendan (18) and Brett (12).
This year’s reunion in Gettysburg is in Elissa’s neighborhood and we are proud to announce that she and her sons will be our special guests. Brendan and Brett will spend the first day with us while Elissa has made arrangements to spend the rest of the week with us.
