Acknowledgements
A number of people need to be recognized for their very kind and helpful assistancein the writing of this thesis, the first of which must be Mr. Clifton Cormier whose adviceand suggestions were absolutely invaluable. Through private telephone conversations,letters, e-mail messages, Mr. Cormier provided highly descriptive data not found in hisbook,
A Postcard From Joseph.
Mr. Cormier remains a staunch LSU Tiger football fan butfinds himself living near some ungodly place they call the
 
“Swamp.”Dr. Charles Shindo is a man for all seasons. Guiding a novice through the academicmaze we call LSU requires nothing less than a saint. He gave me a lot of room andfreedom needed to produce a document such as this, while at the same time patting me onthe back for doing a good job. Not once were his comments negative or abusive. I am notworthy.I also need to thank Dr. William Demastes and Dr. William Clark for serving onmy committee defense of this thesis. Both of these gentlemen made an impression on meas being terribly competent in their respective fields and left me with enlightenment that Iwill carry the rest of my life. They were AWESOME! Glen Thibodeaux also.The Fifth Marine Division Association provided immense help. A big hug of appreciation to Mrs. Lynn Lejeune and Mrs. Susanna Dixon both of the LSU Office of Graduate studies whose patience and counseling also qualifies them for “sainthood.”My wife, Dianna, was forced to become a widow in this time-consuming projectand my daughter, Robin, who always told me, “You are going to do just fine Daddy.” Weboth hope to graduate together, she with a 4.0 GPA, mine in reference to the FifthAmendment. Also Mr. Carl Mastro’s computer magic saved me a lot of misery..
