Michael Marshall MCB5

Rodger and I were in MCB5 together after we finished BU A school.We went to Camp Pendleton for training. He loved to surf.He would disappear every free weekend to ride the eaves.He was generous to his family.As I remember, he sent money home to help his mother, and siblings.It seems she wasn't in good health.And the military wouldn't let get out to care for them.We had a memorial service Roger at Dong Ha and was a very sad day.He was the nicest guy in our company! See you again someday, Roger
