Welcome to MarineDawg.com!
From the sandy soil of Laurens County, Georgia, to the campus of the University of Georgia, to winning the Southern Conference Basketball Championship at Duke University, through Marine training and into World War II on the beaches of Okinawa, Curtis "Coot" Beall has lived a life full of meaning and purpose. Successful in high school and college, in his career as a Marine, and in the business and family life that followed, Beall has enjoyed every path that life offered, making opportunities where few existed, and creating a legacy that few can match. His dedication to his alma mater, where he returns every fall as the oldest active living male UGA cheerleader, is revealed in this heart-warming story of a true Bulldog.
As a token of that dedication, Beall is giving all the net proceeds from the sale of this book to "Cheers," the booster club for the cheerleading squad at UGA.
