HONORING A BRAVE YOUNG MARINE HERO
MARINES ARE THE BEST FIGHTING UNIT IN THE WORLD ASK ANYONE. SO THIS MARINE WAS ONE OF THE BEST, HE DIDNT ASK FOR MUCH NOR DID HE NEED MUCH. NO! HE WAS WILLING TO GIVE ALL HE HAD, SO THAT THE WORLD WOULD BE A BETTER PLACE TO LIVE. BY DOING WHAT HE DID, HE ALLOWED HIS BROTHER MARINES, HIS FRIENDS BACK HOME, AND MILLONS OF OTHERS HE HAD NEVER MEET OR WOULD MEET. A HERO SOME WOULD SAY WEARS A CAPE OR A MASK OR HAS SUPERPOWERS BUT I KNOW REAL HEROS NEED NONE OF THESE THINGS REAL HEROS WEAR MARINE GREEN AND GIVE UP THIER FREEDOM SO THAT THIER FELLOW MAN CAN LIVE IN A FREE WORLD HAND SALUTE TO THE MARINE HERO SEMPER FI MAC!

Always In My Thoughts
Leo, I really didn't know you all that well as I was an attachment to 2/7 Echo as a S-2 Scout. I clearly remember your untimely death as though it was yesterday as I was 5 Marines behind you when the boobytrap exploded. Please know that you were loved and respected by your fellow Marines - may God bless you, your family and friends.

Leo - it's been 43 years since high school and I've lived in DC off and on for more than a decade but I could never bring myself to make the trip to The Wall. It's time - tomorrow on Thanksgiving, I'm going to make the visit that's been long overdue. I'll stop by to say hello to you and Hank Servent.
