Jack Newell email@example.com Brother Viet Vet Nicknamed "Rouge" for his red hair, the June 1966 graduate of Frankford High School fulfilled a lifelong ambition the following October by joining the Marine Corps. His father, a Marine veteran, had fought with Carlson's Raiders in the South Pacific during World War II. Young Rokaski loved outdoor sports, especially fishing in the Poconos, and was considering becoming a forest ranger after the service. The lance corporal, a rifleman, was sent to Vietnam and assigned to Company A of the 1st Battalion, 3rd Marines, 3rd Marine Division. Rokaski died in Quang Tri Province, Vietnam on May 29, 1968. He was 19 and engaged to be married. Survivors included his parents and a brother. Mark lived on Lawndale Avenue, in the Juniata Park section of Philadelphia.

I had the opportunity to visit The Vietnam Memorial Wall in Washington DC. As I searched and, found the names of my friends, classmates, neighbors etched into the smooth, black face of the Wall, an extraordinary outpouring of emotion became so strong. I was so overwhelmed with sorrow and pain that I could not hold back the tears for those heroes and their families who lost so much. Though my visit to the Wall was a few years ago, I feel that I left a piece of my heart there. To honor those who died in the Vietnam War and to say thank youGÇªI created a small tribute to those heroes. Please click on the link above to view memorial website. Saturday, May 01, 2004
