San Juan Island resident Jim Meredith, a volunteer in the San Juan National Historical Park's Living History Program for nearly 40 years, was named "Volunteer of the Century" earlier this month.
Park staff say there isn't anything Meredith doesn't know about the British Royal Marines. The Royal Marines declared him (along with his long-time colleague Fred Henley) an honorary member of their corps in 1998.
