    Dear HM3 Mark Dennis,
    Thank you for your service as a Hospital Corpsman 3rd Class with the 1st Marine Division. Semper Fi. Thank you for the lives you saved. Monday was the 43rd anniversary of the Fall of Saigon. It has been too long, and it's about time for us all to acknowledge the sacrifices of those like you who answered our nation's call. Please watch over America, it stills needs your strength, courage and faithfulness. Rest in peace with the angels.

  • Mark V Dennis and his noble family: victims of war and of bad media

    The Mark V. Dennis case is a heartbreaking example of the sacrifices of war and the devastating impact to family. The case is potentially an example of misidentification of remains during the confusion of war, and certainly a case of sloppy reporting involving a photo of an "unidentified" POW, once believed by the Dennis family to be Mark, that was published in Newsweek magazine in 1970. Life Magazine had identified the POW as Lt. Paul E. Galanti in 1967. These elements would tragically combine to send Mark’s family through a heartbreaking search for the truth over the following 50 years.

    The Mark V. Dennis case forces us to wonder how many American families may have buried misidentified remains from the Vietnam War and should be a lesson to journalists about the importance of fact checking rather than going with an assumption.

    Such is the cruelty of war. Such is the sacrifice of HM3 Mark V. Dennis and his patriotic family.
