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

From an old friend

We were stationed at the Naval Hospital in Guam together, then off to Pendleton, and then to Nam. It was all too fast. I remember you well my friend. You were a great person and an excellent corpsman. We lost so many of our friends from Guam, and even our group from Pendleton, it's hard to think about it. Thank you for being an outstanding corpsman Greg, for treating and saving, and being there for those in need. Not a day goes by that I don't think about our time in Vietnam. I will remember you, and all our fallen corpsmen and Marines for a lifetime. I'm proud to have served with you my friend. Semper Fi

Thank you Doc

Although we never met personally, I want to thank you Gregory Rae Gingerich, for your courageous and valiant service, faithful contribution, and most holy sacrifice, given to this great country of ours!

Your Spirit is alive--and strong, therefore, you shall never be forgotten, nor has your death been in vain!

Again, thank you Doc Gingerich, for a job well done!

FAIR WINDS, AND ETERNAL PEACE MY FRIEND

"I'm the One Called 'Doc'..."

Rest in Peace "Doc"

John Bruneel, HMCM USN (Ret)



"I'm the One Called "Doc…"


I shall not walk in your footsteps,
but I will walk by your side.
I shall not walk in your image,
I've earned my own title of pride.
We've answered the call together,
on sea and foreign land.
When the cry for help was given,
I've been there right at hand.
Whether I am on the ocean
or in the jungle wearing greens,
Giving aid to my fellow man,
be it Sailors or Marines.
So the next time you see a corpsman
and you thing of calling him "squid",
Think of the job he's doing
as those before him did.
And if you ever have to go out there
and you life is on the block,
Look at the one right next to you…
I'm the one called "Doc".
