David T. RED DOG Roberts dtroberts@cox.net "D" 1/4 Together this day 1966 7327 S. 41st Terrace Bellevue, NE 68147 USA Today is my 30th anniversary being married to Diana and I am thankful. Today is also the 36th anniversary of a battle date I will never forget. I had to go to work today and it wasnÆt any different than any other day. As I looked at the clock wondering if it was lunch time, I saw instead the ambush being kicked off at 11:57 AM 16 September 1966. I wasnÆt trying to think about it but it was there. Again, I looked at the clock for my 2 oÆclock break and saw we had been in thXevalXley pinned down and trying to reach the high ground for the past two hours. I still hear the sounds of a fierce battle raging. Again I looked, time to go home?.No, we have reached the high ground and are trying to get our wounded to it and messages of help back to the Rockpile.again not really thinking about that day. I have had tears in my eyes all day and not because of the killing and dying we had to do this day 36 years ago but because I wanted so bad to tell you guys how much you and the guys that stayed behind mean to me, how much we mean to each other and to thank you for standing beside me and each other so long ago. I am mad at myself because all I can come up with is to thank you for being there so I can enjoy taking my wife out on our 30th wedding anniversary. I am usually not at a loss for words, but for whatever the reason, today I am, so all I will say is, Thank each one of you for my life, YOU are my HEROES and I love you.

Rest Easy Marine ~ You Are Not Forgotten


You are not forgotten. Rest Easy Marine !!  Thank you for your service and sacrifice !

The Final Inspection

The Marine stood and faced God, which must always come to pass.
He hoped his shoes were shining, just as brightly as his brass.
“Step forward now, Marine! How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek? To My Church have you been true?”

The Marine squared his shoulders and said, “no, Lord, I guess I ain't 
because those of us who carry guns, can't always be a saint.
I've had to work most Sundays, at times my talk was tough, 
and sometimes I've been violent, because the world is awfully rough.

But, I never took a penny, that wasn't mine to keep...
Though I worked a lot of overtime, when the bills got just too steep.
And I never passed a cry for help, though at times I shook with fear.
And sometimes, God, forgive me, I've wept unmanly tears.

I know I don't deserve a place, among the people here.
They never wanted me around, except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here, Lord, it needn't be so grand.
I never expected or had too much, but if you don't, I'll understand.”

There was a silence all around the throne, where the saints had often trod.
As the Marine waited quietly, for the judgment of his God.
“Step forward now, you Marine. You've borne your burdens well. 
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets, you've done your time in Hell.”


Semper Fidelis

   

Thank you Marine for your dedication, loyalty, and duty to our 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
