Stories

I think of Paul often, we were dating when he went to Vietnam, I think of him to this day, and hope he knows wherever he is he is remembered by me. I miss not getting to know the man I know Paul would have become. Glenda McMahan ( Burgess )

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."

--- Author Unknown ---

God Bless  You
