    I proudly wear your name, 1LT Bird. I have since around 1975 (have replaced my bracelet twice - the other two broke). I think about you & your sacrifice every day, but especially on Memorial Day. You are remembered. GThank you, Sir. Semper Fi.

  • My Salute to Lenny

    Posted on 9/25/15 - by Rob Ralston blackhorse1968@gmail.com
    Lenny and I were great pals. He and I would frequently get together both on and off campus.
    We were on the University of Delaware freshman, swimming team together and he was the captain of the team and a much faster swimmer than I.
    Seeing his smiling face here after so many years is reflects the embodiment of a terrific leader and genuinely fine man to spend time with.
    We lost track of one another after college........2 weeks after graduation, I was in the Army and I would guess he was off to the Marines as well.
    In those days, with the backdrop of the raging conflict in Vietnam, our initial, personal concerns were all about our own daily survival in the face of drill sergeants in basic training, AIT and though the constant harassment of Tac officers in OCS. Yes, Lenny, we continued to have a lot in common.
    I'm so sorry for not having had the opportunity, in person, to say goodbye to such a fine man.
    Lenny was America's finest.
    May his family be eternally proud of him and may God wrap Lenny in his arms forever.
    Goodbye, my friend. I miss you!
