Semper Fi! US Marine

My name is MGYSGT Johnnie Parker, Jr USMC (Ret). PFC John V. Johnson, Jr is my brother-in-law. We served in Vietnam during the same time with different Marine Corps' units. I learned of his death while serving in Vietnam and was involved in the same "1968 Tet Offensive Conflict." I arrived in country eights months earlier. I never got to know him formally. I married his sister shortly after returning from Vietnam myself. I will always believe, I was a part of the his idea to join the Marine Corps and for that, his memories are always a close part of me.
I have a prayer to always remember him and always take comfort in my memories of him. "O God, by whose mercy the faithful departed find rest, look kindly on your departed veterans who gave their lives in the service of their country. Grant that through the passion, death, and resurrection of your Son they may share in the joy of your heavenly kingdom and rejoice in you with your saints forever. We ask this through Christ our Lord. Love you brother, Semper Fi!
