Stories

James was in my platoon. He was one hell of a Marine, bright, and talkative. He talked about his family often. His father evidently had been killed in the WWII and he was quite determined to stand out in the Marine Corps. He did just that. Everyone liked him and he never showed any fear. I wasn't with him the night that he died. Sgt. Sparman, another good man, was with him when he died from a motar attack. R. I P. James, everyone from the platoon missed you. Blainejerry

Thank you Sgt. for your service 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
