Comin' Home

Steve Irvin returned home in August 1967. It was emergency leave, his mother was dying of cancer. Upon arriving, he learned that his father had cancer also and that Steve would be needed to take care of the family. Steve had just finished his first tour in Nam and knew that if he signed up for 6 more months of duty in Nam he could get discharged from the Marines early. He returned to Vietnam and 3 weeks later was killed. He died saving the wounded men in his platoon, carrying them to safety, even while being hit again and again by enemy fire. This was a Real Hero, folks. Remember Him...
