Quantico's Iron MikeMuseum Iron Mikehttp://www.archive.org/stream/marshallcountyin00whit#page/n9/mode/2up   This is the link that started it all. This contains the names of the servicemen and civilians that served in World War One from Marshall County. They have a two page dedication to Frank Glick’s memory. This was an amazing work and it is full of rich history for what Marshall County did for the war effort. A great snapshot in time.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Mike   Though the correct name for the statue is “Crusader for the Right” this it is commonly known as the Iron Mike statue. The original stands in front of the old headquarters building at Quantico. An exact replica is only a couple of miles removed at the National Museum of the Marine Corps just outside the front gate at Quantico. I like this statue so well, I have a bronze replica on my bookshelf above my computer. It reminds me of Frank whenever I see it. http://www.marineheritage.org/Store_detail.asp?ProductID=1314

I think it is one of the best I’ve seen. In it, you will hear the words of Captain (at the time of WWI) John W. Thomason Jr. as he describes the Marines.
