A Thankful Citizen

I didn't know you personally, but from reading other's remembrances I can tell you were a great man and a great Marine. Your service in the war is what keeps me free, and for that I am eternally grateful. Thank you!

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

It is said a man hasn't died as long as he is remembered. This prayer is a way for families, friends and fellow veterans to remember our fallen brothers and sisters.

Do not stand at my grave and weep I am not there, I do not sleep. I am a thousand winds that blow, I am the diamond glints on snow. I am the sunlight on ripened grain, I am the gentle autumn rain. When you awaken in the morning hush, I am the swift, uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight, I am the stars that shine at night. Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there, I did not die.

written by Mary Frye
circa 1932

he served when he didn't have to

mike adair joined h&s co. 1st bn. 7th marines after serving 5 years as reservist. for his own personal reasons, he felt compelled to serve his final year of service in the combat zone of vietnam. i could not figure out why except he felt it was his duty. he did not share his reasons with me. tragically, his decision cost him his life but he died trying to lead others and setting a good example. i wish i had been a better comrade of sgt. adair. i have never forgotten his sacrifice. mike was a fun-loving, gregarious person who treated all those around him with respect. he didn't throw his rank around but tried to lead by example. may he rest in peace.
