Good Day.... A military service member friend of mine sent me the link to an ebay auction showing photos of OSWALD during his USMC recruit training. I have never seen these photos. The photos (FWIW, 2 of which do seem to show OSWALD handling his rifle) are from his recruit training yearbook....

"Because of the photograph taken by AP photographer James Altgens seeming to show a rifle shaped object protruding from the second floor window of the Dal-Tex building, several Warren report critics (including myself) felt that was a probably a firing point for one or two shots. The committee has made available to me the original Altgens negative. Using my technique of vario-density eynexing, I was able to enhance the image in the window to the point of clarity where window is now identifiable as a black man leaning the window sill with both hands, and with no gun in view."

Don:

During May 1975, While in D.C. to testify in executive session before the "Church Committee", I gave Bud Fensterwald the name of the publishing company which did the MCRD San Diego "Marine Corps Recruit Platoon Graduation Books" -- and the same firm that did my Platoon Book [ # 151 - 1954] later did LHO's Platoon Book [1956]. Bud bought several copies, and later sent one to me.

Most important was the 50+ fellow recruit names with pictures -- which is in the same format as high school year books. The first task was to see how many of LHO's fellow recruits were interviewed by the WC.

We couldn't find even one of the "real" recruits having been interviewed. Very strange indeed. LHO's Drill Instructors was also an interesting matter.

Where/how can one find the names of Oswald's drill instructors?
