Never forgotten

CWO Richard Lake Holycross graduated from Columbus West High, and then entered the Marines. He served in Korea and was injured at Chosin Reservoir, i.e., the Chosin Few.

After a long rehabilitation, he became strong enough to get hired by the Columbus Police Department. He formed their Honor Guard.

After being a reserve in the Marines, he decided to go active again for Vietnam. Between September 7, 1967 and September 10, 1967, he was instrumental in helping the USMC in the battle at Quang Tri. He was supposed to take leave to meet his wife and daughter in Hawai'i, but couldn't leave due to the intense fighting.

Your dedication to the USMC is not forgotten.

Semper Fi, MArine

Never forgotten

On this Thanksgiving Day, your sacrifice to the Columbus Police Department and to the United States Marine Corps is not forgotten.

I remember the "old heads" when I came on in 1988, telling us about you.

Now as an "Old Head" myself, I am glad that I learned of your story.

Semper Fi, Rick.

It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us - that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion - Abraham Lincoln
