November 14, 
Dear Mom & Dad & Family
Hi again. Everything is pretty okay here. Been having quite a bit of rain the last few days but today has been pretty hot. Been getting all your letters....
I had a dream last night that some VC were coming towards me and I got shot pretty bad but lived & got a third purple heart. Before I was wounded I had a dream I was shot. So who knows. We been back on C-rats the last 2 weeks. Your last letter I got was dated Nov. 4th. Did you get my check from Nov. 1st for 120.00. 1 should have close to 600.00 in the bank now. Well that's about all I have to say for now so I'll close.
Semper Fi, Marine
Thank you for your service to our country
Semper Fi, Marine........
Thank you Marine for the devotion and loyalty to our 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
