Thank you Doc. for your service to this great nation and our Marines.....

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                  ike

Gave All by LCpl Bob Chiominto

Doc Bruce Manton was killed in Action on May 20, 1967 on Hill 70 during operation Hickory. Kilo 3/9/3 was ambushed on that hill and the wounded were piling up. we had moved our wounder and dead to what we thought was a secure area a treeline on the Hill. The NVA noted for this targeted our wounded with intense mortar fire. Doc kept treating the wounded and some of our men rushed to try and move them during the attack. Doc never stopped working on the men. He would not quit and tried to shield the men with his own body. One of the bravest men I have had the privilage to Know as were all our corpsman they were the bravest of us all. God Bless and keep you Doc Bruce I will never forget you.
