I guess you're right. Since The Cooler King is on MIA list. You can shoot a question when you're ready, Marine.

"The new fighting force soon received the honor of its own special moniker: Spearhead. Nearly 600 Marines submitted entries to design a shoulder insignia expressing this name. The winning design, created by a lieutenant named Fergus Young, was a scarlet shield and gold V, pierced by a spearhead of blue."

Crap, I read that book. I should have to remember it. So, it's Lt. Fergus Young.

BTW, welcome back, man.

Wasn't it the Commandant's home? Not sure the Marine Barracks was there at the time. These days,I know it's considered one and the same but it is a separate building at the location, about a block away from each other.

Since the barracks was in the vicinity of the Navy Yard then and the Commandants house is now part of the barracks I think Barracks works.

It is considered the same these days. Marine Barracks, Commandants house as well as MCI. When I was there, former Joint Chiefs, Gen. Peter Pace, was Col. Pace, my C.O.
