Thank you Marine for your devotion, loyalty and love for this Country & Corps...



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 Marine                  ike




Panel 16E Line 024 17 Apr 2002 NENO We came from a small town and were friends from the first day of school, along with his twin brother who passed away when we were Seniors (1965) in High School. After graduation a bunch of us decided to take the plunge. Two went USAF, two went Navy and Neno wanted to be a Marine. He failed his physical twice but was determined to get in. Next thing I knew we were in Nam together. And because of that I couldn't make it to his funeral, but he'll always be in my heart. ALWAYS A FRIEND, Stephen Rosales 03 Apr 2007 I met Magdalano Tarango's niece in Stillwater, Oklahoma, where she teaches Pre-K. Being a combat veteran of Vietnam myself, I became fascinated that she was so proud of his service, in spite of the fact that she wasn't born until 1965, two years before his death. Isn't it interesting that only those affected by a veteran's death, are immediate family, and friends. She also told me that they named a school after him in his home town, in spite of the prejudice his family was subjected to in his community. God bless and keep you, Magdaleno, and may you know everlasting peace. Glenn Vietnam Veteran (65-66) 1st Bn. 16th Infantry 1st Infantry Division Stillwater, Oklahoma
