USMC Grunt Certificate from Viet-nam

LOYAL ORDER OF THE GRUNT

GRAND REGULARS UNDER NATIONAL TREATRIES SOUTHEAST

This certificate is a fun certificate from the MCA. This copy is about 10x17 inches and is suitable for framing.

The edges of the certificate have some really fine drawings of the VC and the US Marines.

If you are unable to read the middle of the certificate, is the wording:

Be it known that Name________________________Rank__________Service Number___________,Having slipped in slime, mired in mud, and having been zapped at by the Viet-cong, and hazarded the trails of the water buffalo, stepping cautiously to avoid booby traps planted by the Viet-cong and the buffalo....And, further, having mastered the use of the phrase Xin-loi when and wver the situation dictates, having sniffed noxious aura of nuoc mam, having tasted the bitter gregs of Ba-moui-ba...And, having survived the strife in the Land Of Tiger Claw and Fang of Snake

In Testimony, wof, we the paddy-sloshing, sweat drenched, insect welted endorsiers of the above member, set our true signature and Grand Seal of this miserable society...
