Thank you Capt. for your service to this great nation and our 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."

 God Bless  You                  ike

To My Dearest Family

To My Dearest Family Some things I'd like to say, 
but first of all to let you know 
that I arrived okay 
I'm writing this from Heaven 
where I dwell with God above 
where there's no more tears 
or sadness there 
is just eternal love 
Please do not be unhappy 
just because I'm out of sight 
remember that I'm with you 
every morning, noon and night 
That day I had to leave you 
when my life on Earth was through 
God picked me up and hugged me 
and He said I welcome you 
It's good to have you back again 
you were missed while you were gone 
as for your dearest family 
they'll be here later on 
I need you here so badly 
as part of My big plan 
there's so much that we have to do 
to help our mortal man 
Then God gave me a list of things 
He wished for me to do 
and foremost on that list of mine 
is to watch and care for you 
And I will be beside you 
every day and week and year 
and when you're sad 
I'm standing there 
to wipe away the tear 
And when you lie in bed at night 
the days chores put to flight 
God and I are closest to you 
in the middle of the night 
When you think of my life on Earth 
and all those loving years 
because you're only human 
they are bound to bring you tears 
But do not be afraid to cry 
it does relieve the pain 
remember there would be no flowers 
unless there was some rain 
I wish that I could tell you 
of all that God has planned 
but if I were to tell you 
you wouldn't understand 
But one thing is for certain 
though my life on Earth is o're 
I am closer to you now 
than I ever was before 
And to my very many friends 
trust God knows what is best 
I'm still not far away from you 
I'm just beyond the crest 
There are rocky roads ahead of you 
and many hills to climb 
but together we can do it 
taking one day at a time 
It was always my philosophy 
and I'd like it for you too 
that as you give unto the World 
so the World will give to you 
If you can help somebody 
who is in sorrow or in pain 
then you can say to God at night 
my day was not in vain 
And now I am contented 
that my life it was worthwhile 
knowing as I passed along the way 
I made somebody smile 
So if you meet somebody 
who is down and feeling low 
just lend a hand to pick him up 
as on your way you go 
When you are walking 
down the street 
and you've got me on your mind 
I'm walking in your footsteps 
only half a step behind 
And when you feel the gentle breeze 
or the wind upon your face 
that's me giving you a great big hug 
or just a soft embrace 
And when it's time for you to go 
from that body to be free 
remember you're not going 
you are coming here to me 
And I will always love you 
from that land way up above 
Will be in touch again soon 
P.S. God sends His Love

Email Address:

John Wadsworth Consolvo, Jr. was born on January 8, 1944 and joined the Marine Corps while in Fort Belvoir, Virginia. He served as a Naval Aviator in the United States Marine Corps, VMFA 212, MAG 15, 1 MAW, and attained the rank of Captain. He began his second tour of duty on May 7, 1972. He was given a high probability of surviving, as he ordered his RIO (later picked up) to eject while he stayed in a little longer to steer away from friendly village. In Oct. of 1974 there was a presumptive finding of death as a result of the need for closure by his wife. However, there has never been any information to support this finding, and in fact, the crash site was never investigated. Any information about sightings or other related matter would be greatly appreciated. Please help us bring these men home! AWARDS Distinguished Flying Cross, Bronze Star with Combat ''V'', Air Medal (First thru nineteen Strike/Flight Awards, Air Medal (Bronze Star for first award)., Air Medal (Gold Star in lieu of second award) a Navy Commendation Medal. Purple Heart,, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service medal and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Medal

Capt Consolvo went down on 5/7/1972 and was considered MIA.  On 10/22/1974, DoD issued a presumptive finding of death.
