THE FILTHY FEW, REMEMBERS
Paul, the years slip away, but you, the first we lost, were never forgotten. We didn't get to know you well, as you were with us, but a short time, being attached to us, from the weapons platoon. Even so, we all knew The Big Kahuna as you, became to be called after the boxing match, with the Navy, aboard, the USS., Lenawee. That nite and our first real fire fight, will always remain etched, in our minds. You did, your Job And that, says it all. You were and always will, be a true Marine. You are still one of us, The Filthy Few. We have reunited and found, 26, of our brothers and are looking, for the rest. We meet every 2, years and toast the memory, of you and the rest of our fallen Brothers. Rest assured, the last man standing, will honor you and the others. Semper Fi, my Brother

visited camp evans, summer, of '67, couple times, wondered who the guy was, or what, he could have done, to have this camp named, after him, when i first stopped in, for some, green eggs and then a half, hour ordeal, in the six, hole shitter, near, the messhall tents, way back in the summer, of '67 - now reading these couple comments, i get the feeling, that he was a good guy, someone who, it would have been nice, to meet. nice, to know and be friends with, instead, of just staying a night, or two, at his camp, now and then...

always remembered, never forgotten
On the Day that changed all, of our lives forever, we found the trail/road which would lead us, to a camp. Only after the incident with you, did we understand what the venture we had chosen, was about. In one second, the Camp Became, Camp Evans. Whenever, I hear the camp mentioned, I always reflect back, to that first thought of us, as Marines. Some paid dearly for a war, That we as Vietnam Veterans, must never let them, forget. Travel light and keep moving. Semper Fi!

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.

paul was killed, the first night, we set up at what, is now known, as camp evans. [named for him] we were attacked, a little after dark, by a company size, of vc. and as they reached, the couple of strands, of wire we had up, paul had to expose himself, to fire, his 3.5, rocket launcer, which he did, to good effect. after getting off several rounds, he was hit, in the heart and died instantly. you have to understand, that there is no way, you can fire, a 3.5, without exposing, your upper body. paul did his job, as a marine and i for one am proud, of him. michael mitchell, hmc., ret..

Paul was a good friend and one tough defensive tackle. Idealistic and too brave for this world. I think of him frequently, and I have visited "The Wall" to shed my tears and pay respect to a friend I loved. I know it was hls wish to serve his country, but I wish he could have had more time to bring his special kind of light to our world. He was indeed a gentle giant and a talented artist. I will miss him always. Thank you for the details of his death. I am pleased to know he died without suffering. May God Bless Him.
