Found this in the recent release https://www.archives.gov/files/research/jfk/releases/2018/104-10419-10076.pdf Ozzie was never more than Private.... Pretty sure Ms Egerter would be VERY interested... Mr. OSWALD. I might say going through boot camp at San Diego, Calif., during the second week of boot training I was selected as the right guide of the platoon which actually was a go-between the drill instructors and the rest of the platoon, and I retained that position all the way through the remainder of the boot camp. On completion of boot camp I was a Pfc. I retained that excuse me, I retained that rank until I went to Miami, Fla., at which time on my departure from Miami, Fla., I received my corporal's stripe, and prior to leaving Korea in April of 1955 I received my sergeant's stripe which was my last stripe that I received in the Marine Corps.
I have been trying without success to uncover info re Marvin Kantor, who was in Russia at the same time as Oswald. Kantor spent time in 1958 and 1959 in Minsk. I believe Kantor also was a former marine. I have found a lot of info on "defector" Robert E. Webster, but not much on Kantor. Any info would be appreciated.
