Day before deployment.

Bill came over to the house for a quick swim (we had a small pool) and that's when he told me tomorrow he was being sent overseas. Besides " I love you" and "keep that damn red haired head down", we hugged and that was the last I saw until the funeral. It ripped my heart out seeing someone I've known since we were kids. His name is on my arm as a constant reminder. A great friend, forever a giving friend. Visited the Wall years later, cried like a baby, unashamedly. I enlisted because of him.

Your brother is now with you.

Dear Uncle Billy:

You joined the Marines because your older brother had been a Marine and you were so proud of his service. He always felt responsible for your death at such a young age. Your brother passed on April 17, 2016, at the age of 79. I know you are both now pheasant hunting in the great beyond and having a great time. He missed you so much and I miss you both.

Much love to both you Marines,
Karen
