8th & I Parade for SgtMaj Canley

80 yrs old, looking STRAC. He still looks like he could still kick some ass.

BTW, I don't know why the CMC and SMMC are out of step.

SgtMaj Canley has passed at 84 after a long battle with cancer. RIP SgtMaj. He joined the Corps in 1953 at age 15 using his brothers birth certificate.
