    Great pictures. The first one, of the Zona Colonial, must be unique: it seems to be snowing!

    The "Gavilleros" of the DR that gave the Marines a hard time in their quest to control and disarm the population Circa 1916. They were not only men but women alike in their ranks.


    The National Guard, later to become the Dominican Armed Forces under Trujillo, fully equipped and trained under the U.S. Marines command and to their liking. First elite troops to be combat ready under the U.S. Military standard of the time.
    Troops were not only land trained but trained to operate under a combined forces equal to that of the U.S. Military command.
