Thank you Marine 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                 

 

 

When he was 6 years old, my brother, Ken (Butch) received an electric train for Christmas. Money was hard to come by in our household and gifts such as that train were few and far between. Times were harder, however, for our neighbors who had two little boys just about Butch's age. They received no Christmas gifts that year. When Butch heard about this he re-boxed his train and immediately took it next door so the neighbor boys wouldn't think Santa had forgotten them. Butch is remembered as a special person and role model by everyone who knew him, especially his little brothers and sisters. Posted by: Pamela Logan
