Once a Marine
COL Donald L. Dickson, EditorPublisher of Leatherneck Magazine, was retired after 40 years in the Marine Corps Reserve. More than 20 of those years were spent on active duty, and he held nearly every rank between private and colonel.
Col Dickson has been Editor-Publisher of Leatherneck for the past 14 years. He will continue in that same capacity as a civilian.
The colonel began submitting stories, illustrations and cover drawings to Leatherneck Magazine in 1927, but until 1951, when he was called back on active duty, he had never been officially connected with the magazine.
