  • An exceptional Marine

    Posted on 3/10/02 - by Willard Yoder, former Sgt. USMC
    I served under Captain Coates at CGFMFPac in 1967. He was considered one of the finest young officers in the command. LtGen Victor Krulak had so much respect for this man he participated in a special memorial service for Capt. Coates at HQ FMFPac shortly after his death. His death was a great loss for the Corps and America.
