HONORING A YOUNG BRAVE 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!

I just wanted, all, who appreciate Willie's sacrifice, to know I have created, a Buffalo, Soldier's flag, to honor my friend. It is the first, of it's kind, in the United States! It is proudly, displayed every Saturday, in Poughkeepsie, N.Y., on route, 9 & Vassar Brothers road, from Noon, to 3, p.m. It reads: The Buffalo Soldiers-Heroes All.

A Friend. A Good Man and a Great Marine
I served, with Willie, in Vietnam, in 1968-1969, while wirh Lima, 3/26 and He, "Bam" and I would harmonize, together, during the lull, in battle. I was wounded and medevaced, in April '69. While in NSA., Hospital, in Danang, I was told, of his death and cried, for the loss, of a friend. I can still, hear us singing, "Up on the Roof" and thinking, we nailed it! I know Heaven, is a little bit brighter place, Because of "Willie" and hope, he puts in a good word, for me. I have some photos, of him, taken, while in Country.
