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)

He worked with my dad.
Newburyport, MA 01950 USA
A spiritual moment between two old friends.
I was in Washington DC with my family and my father was telling us about this young man that he wanted to look up on the wall. He had told me about this man a few times in my life. He was not sure if his name was Gordon Russell or Russell Gordon so he was not going to try to find him in the catolog that is used to look soldiers names up. He was not sure how to look someone up in the book or on the wall. He stepped up to the book looked over someone elses shoulder just to glance and see how it was done. We were in a little bit of a hurry. Everyone we were with was hungry from our long walk on the Mall that day. In amazement my father stated there he is! The book was opened to the very book and page! Gordon was at the top on the page listed as the first casualty of war from Danvers,MA We could not believe it. What ate the odds of that? I told my dad, you have always wanted to come here to see the wall and have told me about this young man a few times, you cannot come this far without looking Gordon up. I believe two friends had a spiritual moment, I felt it myself. I was young during the Vietnam Warand have a brother that served as well. I remember my mothers concern every time the news came on TV every night. PEACE BE WITH YOU. From Donna Granese
