I was a SKEMERS member decades ago. Does that group still exist? I was also on SK's autograph for three years only to get a book (not signed) and letter from SK stating he quit that practice. Being in Jacksonville, NC (home of more than 50,000 Marines (one of my Alma Maters), I will probably never get to see SK in person and get a signing. Does anyone know if he is coming near the coast of NC?
