Preserving The Oral HistorIES of Combat Veterans


Mike Pickrel | Headquarters Battalion, 3rd Marine Division - Marines

7:08   |   It was the Movie Gung Ho! that instilled the desire to become a Marine in the young mind of Mike Pickrel. In 1995, at age 19, he enlisted and spent four years in the Corps. He was at Headquarters Battalion in Okinawa, then finished up his enlistment at Quantico. He wasn't done, all the knowledge he'd gained came in handy later.
