CUPP Reunion, Houston, 2015
Robert Flynn []            

 I went to Houston to honor the CUPP Marines. Instead, they honored me. I was surprised, pleased and humbled when they gave me a plaque with a photo of CUPP Marines, including me as one of them. Capt. Tilley (Col. Tilley, retired) told me that I was on his company roster and that’s why he called me or sent a Christmas card every year. That really touched me and the plaque made his statement concrete and something I can show others.

I thanked the CUPP Marines for the honor and started to return to my seat when Rick Stanford told me there was more. He then presented me with a beautiful sculpture of a bald eagle, the crown of the EGA, with a text thanking me for telling their story. I assure you that telling your story was far easier than living your story,

Photographs of me and the awards are on my facebook page @Robert Flynn.
