    There are no great men, only great challenges that ordinary men are forced by circumstances to meet.

    classic combat maneuver...step on his foot to get him off balance, then gouge him in the eyes, then hit him in the junk while he is blinded. The TMs plagerized this from a 3 stooges episode, or vice versa...but it certainly works! Grab twist and pull!

    I like it. We were taught some kind of basic tae kwon do. Not bad, but not funny.

    The original caption was about the Montford Point marines, camp Lejune, with this title... "US Marine Corps judo instructor Corporal Arvin Lou Ghazlo training Private Ernest C. Jones, Montford Point Camp, North Carolina, April 1943"

    It was trying to display the effectiveness the new integrated USMC would have.

    I believe Montford Point is now Camp Johnson, with several MOS schools there. I know I have pictures somewhere. There was a 3 acre or so yard behind the HQ building, dotted with a few oak trees here and there. The Camp commander had a private war going on against falling leaves...and just about every other evening after training, me and around 99 others were issued rakes, and covered/aligned and in cadence would sweep the whole yard of leaves from one end to the other. The more creative among us would sing new cadence ditties. A few pieces I remember, but none are appropriate for the general public.
    There was a large plaque, I think right next to the main parade ground which was surrounded by classrooms, in memorial to the original Montford Point marines.
