On Nov. 4, 1961, young Marine Joe E. Williams, a slick, dark-haired, 19-year-old lance corporal stationed at Marine Corps Air Station Cherry Point, N.C., wed his childhood sweetheart, Maureen, a 20-year-old, beautiful, blond-haired vixen, who ran away from her hometown in Pennsylvania to marry Joe in nearby New Bern, N.C. Joe served for 10 years in the Corps, seven at Cherry Point, where he and Maureen began their life a half a century ago. The couple had never been back, until Sept. 18, when their four children surprised them with a trip back to the air station to savor the significance of such a rare occasion -- their upcoming 50th anniversary. Also available in high definition.
