THE BUDDY PLAN
David, A. C. McEachern and Johnny Lee joined the Marines together in July 1957. They had
all been out of high school for a year and we all thought that we would soon be
drafted into the army. They joined the service under what was called "The Buddy
Plan" which meant that we would be guaranteed to stay together through boot
camp and advanced infantry training. A. C. and Johnny were stationed together for about
18 months at Camp Pendleton, Ca.
