THEY PULLED OFF THE SURPRISE!  Christine Whiting, the U.S. Marine Corps Combat Correspondents Association's National Secretary, was caught

totally off-guard when National USMCCCA President Keith Oliver presented her with the coveted Donald L. Dickson Memorial Award during the group's annual awards

banquet in New Bern, North Carolina on August 22, 2018.  Christine is getting a congratulatory hug from USMCCCA Foundation President Manny Pacheco.  All three Marines 

served on active duty together in the 1980s. (Kate Stark photo)

CHRISTINE WHITING RECEIVES AWARD FROM USMC COL.(Ret.) KEITH OLIVER

JOE GALLOWAY, America's most revered war correspondent since the World War II days of Ernie Pyle.  Joe co-authored the book We Were Soldiers Once ... And Young; and he

was the only civilian journalist to be awarded a Bronze Star (with Combat "V") in Vietnam - for actions in the IA Drang Valley in 1965.  His principled, gutsy work as a journalist is featured in the motion

pictures "We Were Soldiers" (with Mel Gibson) and "Shock and Awe" (with Tommy Lee Jones).
