We were in the same platoon in basic training. I didn't know you well but I do remember you. Thanks for your service and sacrifice.

Do not stand at my grave and weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

Mary Frye – 1932

The Philadelphia Inquirer - September 25, 1968

Marine Lance Cpl. Nicholas Marino 3rd, 18, son of Mrs. Anna Marino, 1715 N. 62nd St., Philadelphia.
Marine Lance Cpl. Marino died of gunshot wounds sustained in Quang Tri Province. His mother was notified of her son's death Monday night.
In a letter to his mother two weeks ago, Cpl. Marino expressed a premonition of his death. He said in part: "I can't begin to tell you what its like over here, you wouldn't understand. When I get to the gates of heaven, I'll say to God -'One Marine reporting, Sir, I've already served my time in hell.'"
A graduate of Overbrook High School, Cpl. Marino is survived by a brother and a sister in addition to his mother.

Semper Fidelis, Marine!
