"I'll never forget you"

I'll never forget the look on your face as you lie there with frothy blood around your lips. I wanted to help you so badly and cried to myself as you slipped away. Sorry, there's nothing I could do. That stare you gave me on your way out remains with me to this day. You commanded the respect of all the men in the platoon. Your integrity and dedication to the Corps and the United States is beyond reproach. You're a model Marine for all your successors to emulate. Thanks for your guidance through those difficult times. You are in my prayers always.

"The Quiet Hero"

Sergeant Hill was a very devoted Marine. He served as the Platoon Right Guide for 3rd Platoon, "M" Company, 3rd Battalion/26th Marines. He assisted the Platoon Sergeant and served his country in the highest traditions of the U.S. Marine Corps. He was always available in a time of need.

On March 4, 1969, when we were attacked by an unknown force in the early morning hour, Sgt Hill lost his life in the defense of his country. He disregarded his injuries to direct help to others that he believed were more seriously hurt. At daybreak, when the situation became controlled, it was realized that Sgt Hill was no longer with us. It hit everyone extremely hard but we still honor the priviledge to have served with him. God bless that gentle, quiet but powerful man whom we loved so dearly. Sgt Hill was a credit to his country, the United States Marine Corps and the U.S. Naval Service.

Arthur, I salute and honor you. It was truly a priviledge to have served with you and have you as Right Guide for 3rd Battalion/26th Marines, "M" Company, 3rd Platoon. You fought a great fight and now you are at peace. Guard those pearly gates until we arrive.

Semper Fi,
Larry C. Tasby
