MEMORIES FROM YOUR 81 MORTAR SECTION LEADER
I was Roger's Staff Sergeant in his 81 Mortar Section at Khe Sanh Combat Base the day he was KIA March 4th, 1968. We were in 3rd Battalion, 26th Marine Regiment. A sad day indeed. Roger was always friendly and smiling even though we were almost constantly under rocket, mortar and heavy artillery bombardment. I wrote his sister, she was serving as a teacher in the Philippines with the Peace Corps (I believe). She replied and then we went to 881 South for further combat against the NVA. I lost her address and have never heard from her again. I just hope she and her family were able to cope with Roger's death. I was med-evaced off hill 881 South. Marine, I never have forgotten you. I think of you and pray for your family and the repose of your soul regularly. Continue your rest in peace Marine. Semper Fidelis,
MGySgt. F. AL Pearson, USMC (Ret)
Served: 26Oct56 to 01Nov86. Loved then and now.

Was with him in Viet Nam
I was with Roger on that terrible day. There has not been one day in 37 years that I have not thought of Roger. I know there is not much you can say other than from my heart "you will never be forgotten". Semper Fi my friend.
