2nd Lieutenant Cornelius Hayes V-12 Program Photo
With as many pictures I look through at swap meets and thrift stores it is amazing how few Marine photos I find. This is another WWII Marine photo I found at an antique store a couple of years ago. Cornelius Hayes was part of the V-12 program at the University of Redlands in Southern California. He received combat training at both Camp Pendleton and Camp Lejune but the war ended and he missed going off to combat. He was later attached to the 3rd Marine Division and in 1946 was part of the 6th Marine Division. Thank you for your service in WWII Mr Hayes!
