Stories

Gary was a wonderful brother and a good friend. He had the ability to make people laugh with his great sense of humor and to make people feel special with his kind and loving heart. My brother Gary is deeply missed. I thank yuu Gary for your courage and sacrifice. Love, Your sister, Cindy

I was Gary's squad leader. He was a couragous Marine. He walked point that day. God rest his soul. Tom F, Fox 2/9

Thank you Marine for your devotion 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
