My Hero
Dear Uncle Tom, I never had the honor of meeting you. Although you were gone before I was born, I have never forgotten the sacrifice you made for me and all the other American's living free lives today. I love you despite the missed opportunity to know you. I know Dad is up there in Heaven with you now and he is in safe hands. Thank you for watching over him while he's so far away. I will forever miss you both. You are my heros! Until we meet again... Love forever and always~ Your Niece Stephanie

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 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 (REN)

Grumpy Grimes, as we called him, and I served together as Marine Security Guards at our Embassy in Lima, Peru in 65-66.I remember the day that he was promoted to Sgt. We teased him about being the shortest Sgt.in the Corps. Tommy took all of our good natured teasing in stride. I also remember the time that Senator Birch Bayh of Indiana was on a fact finding trip to Lima. Grumpy was also from Indiana and the Senator wanted photos. Grumpy was in rare form.Should he ware dress blues,or civvies.Tommy,the Senator and Ms.Bayh had several photos made. All hands had a good time. Of course Grumpy took more ribbing about sucking up to the Senator. By the way we all wore civvies. The last time I saw Tommy was at the airport. It was hard to say goodbye to Peru and good friends, but the Country was at war and Marines were on the move. Tommy, Dear Friend of my youth, You are missed.

Semper Fi to the Grimes men and women of Nam!
Today is Memorial Day, 2006! I have searched on Viet Nam vets with the last name of Grimes. I am doing this to recognize Memorial Day and in memory of my father, MSgt. William R. Grimes. Both of my parents are gone now and I have recently read the letters my father sent to my mother during his Nam tour. Never have I been so aware of the sacrifices and hardships our troops were going through. I was just a little kid back then - the news was boring. I didn't understand. Now I am plagued by the memories of being a Marine brat. I was born and raised on Camp LeJeune. I wonder how many of you were stationed or shipped through LeJeune. I wonder how many of you may have known and served with my father. Semper Fi and many many thanks for the ultimate sacrifice you and your family have made in continuing the freedom we have here in America. With Much Love, Eloise Grimes Ratliff, Milton, Florida
