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

 

 

 

Roy Spurgeon was my brother. He loved the mountains here in New Mexico. He loved to hunt and fish and play sports. I was not quite 13 years old when he was killed. I was the youngest and the only girl, always tagging along... He tolerated me better than my other brothers, helped me learn things. I have always thought of him and missed him ... as all the family does. He was so proud to be a Marine! We, his family, are proud of his sacrifice for our country. He is buried in Santa Fe, New Mexico, at the National Cemetery ... alongside our father who died 2 years before Roy. They were both very young ... and a lot alike:) Many have died over the years in wars. But our freedoms come with a high price. We shall always remember. From his sister, Sharon S. Spurgeon Roy is buried at Santa Fe Nat Cemetery in NM. Posted by: Robert Sage Email: rsage@austin.rr.com
