by William E. Moore
Five young men, having never met, board trains en route to Washington, D.C., where they will later entrain to the United States Marine Corps Recruit Depot at Parris Island, South Carolina.
Dress Blues is the story of these five lives merging to become one inseparable unit. The differences in temper, likes and dislikes, are put aside as they learn to work together as a team.
Training everywhere from Parris Island to Scotland, Hawaii, Australia, China, Japan, and finally the frozen north of Korea, their experiences are laced with humor, despair, and tragedy, and always with the belief that it was well worth the effort.
