Letter from John Marshall to his family found at http://us.history.wisc.edu/hist102/pdocs/vietnamletters.pdf November 14, [1968] Dear Mom & Dad & Family Hi again. Everything is pretty okay here. Been having quite a bit of rain the last few days but today has been pretty hot. Been getting all your letters.... I had a dream last night that some VC were coming towards me and I got shot pretty bad but lived & got a third purple heart. Before I was wounded I had a dream I was shot. So who knows. We been back on C-rats the last 2 weeks. Your last letter I got was dated Nov. 4th. Did you get my check from Nov. 1st for 120.00. 1 should have close to 600.00 in the bank now. Well that's about all I have to say for now so I'll close. Love always John

Semper Fi, Marine


Thank you for your service to our country

Semper Fi, Marine........

Thank you Marine for the devotion and loyalty to our Nation and 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
