Stories

I knew Tim in Boot Camp in San Diego. We were good friends there and shared what good times were allowed to us. There were things he taught to me because of his ROTC experience.

I ooked for him after I was discharged, never found him, and never thought to look on The Wall (which I have never seen). One of my sons went to Washington DC and I asked him to look on The Wall. It was there I found him.

He was a good man and we were good friends.

Thank you Marine for your devotion, loyalty and love for this Country & 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."

--- Author Unknown ---

 

God Bless you Marine                  ike
