Thank you SSgt. 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." --- Author Unknown --- God Bless  You      

SSgt Karol R. Bauer was approaching the crest of the hill when he began warning his comrades to remain back and take cover as he heard mortars pop from their tubes. His warning was responsible for saving many lives as moments later an enemy mortar barrage saturated the Marine advance. After the barrage, SSgt Bauer rushed to assist the casualties to points of safety. While assisting one Marine, an enemy sniper mortally wounded him.
