Thank you Major 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                 

 

 

I'm Free

I'M FREE 

Don't grieve for me for now I'm free, 
I'm following the path God laid for me. 
I took His hand when I heard Him call, 
I turned my back and left it all. 
I could not stay another day, 
To laugh, to love, to work or play. 
Tasks left undone must stay that way, 
I found that peace at the close of the day. 
If my parting has left a void, 
Then fill it with remembered joy. 
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, 
Ah yes, these things I too will miss. 
But be not burdened with times of sorrow, 
For I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. 
My life's been full. I've savored much, 
Good friends, good times and loved ones' 
touch. 
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief 
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. 
Lift up your hearts and share with me. 
God wanted me now. He set me free! 

Died 28Aug67 vicinity of North Vietnam when the aircraft in which he was pilot explode during a bombing run when hit by hostile fire. Body not recovered. Previously reported missing.

SHOT DOWN 16 MILES N-NE OF DONG HA DURING DIRECT AIR SUPPORT MISSION 19670828
