To a Leader

Mr. Griffis: We met when you became my Platoon Leader in G/2/6 in 1965. You were first to congratulate me when I was admitted to NAPS later that year. Your leadership was outstanding and your guidance is helped fashion the Navy Cross I received in 1968. Thank you, Sir. Rest well, Skipper.

I shall not forget you

I served with "1st Lt. Bill Griffis" as one of his squad leaders in 2/5 Quick Reactionary force in 1966-67. No other
officer was more of a asset to his country
and corps than my commander. He was a fine man, and a excellent officer. The marine corps needed more men like him. The highest tribute I can pay to Capt William A. Griffis in death is to never forget him, for which I shall not do.

Cpl L.J. Williams, Squad Leader, 2058938
Quick Reationary Force, H&S (106's)
2/5 1st Mar Div, FMF, I Corp, Quang Tri
