Marine : A Guided Tour of a Marine Expeditionary Unit - 1996

Tom Clancy tells us the real story of the men and women who serve in this most hallowed branch of the Armed Forces. With a compelling style and eye for detail, Clancy paints the fascinating picture of the Corps as only he could.

The Marines: United States Marine Corps - 1998

The Marines’ greeting is “Semper Fi.” They use it all the time. It means Always Faithful, and that is what the Corps is. If this book is faithful to the best of the Marine Corps, it will meet the challenge we set for ourselves.

Valentine's Day: A Marine Looks Back - 2014

This is a true account, at least as true as forty odd years allows me to be. I've struggled long and hard with the dilemma of being true and accurate against the sorrow of those family members who were affected by the loss of loved ones in Vietnam.

The Folks Behind the GG Archives

The GG Archives is the work and passion of two people, Paul Gjenvick, a professional archivist, and Evelyne Gjenvick, a curator. Paul earned a Masters of Archival Studies - a terminal degree from Clayton State University in Georgia, where he studied under renowned archivist Richard Pearce-Moses. Our research into the RMS Laconia and SS Bergensfjord, the ships that brought two members of the Gjønvik family from Norway to the United States in the early 20th century, has helped us design our site for other genealogists. The extent of original materials at the GG Archives can be very beneficial when researching your family's migration from Europe.
