SOME CAME HALF WAY ROUND THE WORLD FROM PLACE'S LIKE BANGOR MAINE, FROM THE SMOKEY MOUNTAINS FROM THE PLAIN'S STATES AND THE STATES ALONG THE MISSISSIPPI RIVER.TO THE GREAT LAKES AND THE PACIFIC NORTHWEST SOME CAME FROM OTHER COUNTRIES LIKE CANADA AND AUSTRALIA AND IRELAND, MANY CAME FROM THE AMERICAN TERR. LIKE PURETO RICO AND GUAM. THEY CAME TOGETHER TO FIGHT AGAINST THE COMMON ENEMY. TO HELP A FREE NATION SURVIVE. THESE MARINES GAVE THIER ALL SO THAT OTHERS WOULDNT HAVE TO PAY FOR THIS THING CALLED FREEDOM. THANK YOU SIR'S SEMPER FI I KNOW YOU ARE GUARDING THE STREETS OF HEAVEN HAND SALUTE

“You are Remembered”
Peace and condolence, to the family and friends. “He which hath no stomach, to this fight, let him depart. But we in it, shall be remembered. We few, we happy few, we band of brothers!! For he today, that sheds his blood with me, shall always be my brother.” Rest in peace brave soldier, you have not been forgotten. (W.Shakespeare) May God Bless you, for your Sacrifice!!!

Well done Marine rest in peace
THE TIME you won your town the race We chaired you through the market-place Man and boy stood cheering by, And home we brought you shoulder-high. To-day, the road all runners come, Shoulder-high we bring you home, And set you at your threshold down, Townsman of a stiller town. Smart lad, to slip betimes away From fields where glory does not stay And early though the laurel grows It withers quicker than the rose. Eyes the shady night has shut Cannot see the record cut, And silence sounds no worse than cheers After earth has stopped the ears: Now you will not swell the rout Of lads that wore their honours out, Runners whom renown outran And the name died before the man. So set, before its echoes fade, The fleet foot on the sill of shade, And hold to the low lintel up The still-defended challenge-cup. And round that early-laurelled head Will flock to gaze the strengthless dead, And find unwithered on its curls The garland briefer than a girl’s.
A.E. Housman, "Don't be afraid, I've redeemed you. I've called your name. You're mine.
Isaiah 43:1

Personal Note
I became acquainted with Carroll, in high school- Baltimore, Polytechnic Institute. Although, never becoming close friends, he does stand out, in my memory as a very kind, decent and considerate, human being, a "nice guy"- the type of person, that makes the world, a better place. God, must have had a very good reason, for calling him at such, a young age.
