Fellow Marine
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 it’s 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 it’s 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 (REN)

DESCANSA EN PAZ, ESE. Rest In Peace, Cpl., Figueroa. Javier, no nos hemos olvidado, y no nos olvidaremos, carnalito. You, are not forgotten, ese. Even as years pass, NAM, keeps coming back, to us. It's been a long time, but to many of us, it seems, like yesterday. We of LA RAZA were few, but we were everywhere and we fought hard and proud. We gave our all, to LA CROTCHA. (THE CORPS) It's been 37, years today, since you gave the ultimate sacrifice, for our country. You served The Corps, honorably and died gallantly, in battle. A True Marine and a bona fide, HERO. As long as the VIETNAM, VETERAN'S, MEMORIAL WALL, stands and is with us, you are among Americans, that care. WE WON'T FORGET. Semper Fi, Bro. (Lima, 3/1, '66 & Alpha, 1/27, '68)

I didn't know, this young Marine, but all should have note attached, to their name. I believe I was in the same fight that took his life, a lot of good Marines were lost, but we held the line and saved Tet. It is a shame young Marines, have to die.
