Dave Easton served in the Marines from January 1951 until January 1954, with the time split between the 2nd Division in North Carolina and the 1st Division in Korea. He re-enlisted in the Corps for another three-year hitch in February 1957, and later agreed to a two-year extension to qualify for embassy duty. He finished his enlistment in C Company, 2nd Recon Battalion, and was honorably discharged in February 1962.
