Thank you Marine for your service to this great nation and to our Corps...

THE WALL Standing here in front of the Wall silently reading your name solemnly I thank you one and all Each of you different, yet the same The list seems forever endless but I remember your faces you made the supreme sacrifice, I confess as I walk slowly with measured paces Each one of you answered the call willingly or not, you gave your lives Rest easy, my Brothers - heroes all The Nation still survives   "War drew us from our homeland In the sunlit springtime of our youth. Those who did not come back alive remain in perpetual springtime -- forever young -- And a part of them is with us always." God Bless  You

20 Sep 2006 Marine, I never knew you. You died on the same day and place that my brother did. You were there, fighting for your country and the American way of life. I mourn your passing. You were gone in a flash, in the prime of your youth, never to return to St. Louis, Missouri. You never got a chance to lead a productive life, marry, raise a family, or be there for your aging parents. You are our hero. You have served our nation well and we thank you for your honor and sacrifice ! Rest in peace, Marine. You're not forgotten! From the sister of a fellow fallen Marine, Judy Tedrow Metzker rnjmet@wavecable.com You served in Vietnam with my husband and you were also in Bootcamp with him. Bless you brave Marine, you did not die alone.Semper Fi Posted by: Mrs. Bobby Harris(Bones) Email: EbunHar50@aol.com Relationship: Thursday, May 12, 2005
