we will remember

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

We were a true 'band of brothers'.

I was the Gunnery Sergeant Bandmaster of the 1st Marine Division band at 1st Marine Division Headquarters, near Da Nang. The band was attacked on their defensive line 22-23 Feb., 1969. The band fought hand to hand. Three bandsmen were KIA and four wounded. The band killed 19 of the enemy and took 1 prisoner. We saw evidence where the enemy dragged off a number of their killed and wounded.
Cpl Mitchell, as were our other casualties, were all fine young men, Marines, and musician's. They gave up their tomorrow's so the rest of us could have our today's.
Rest In Peace, Marines.

Because of his big smile we called him "Ho Chi Mitch". I was with him in the Marine Band. He sat next to me and played 2nd French Horn. I played 3rd Horn. The band was divided into two groups. I traveled all over Vietnam with him as we played at many "Change of Commands", Orphanages, and other concerts.
After I returned to the US, I was told by others that he
volunteered to drive the wounded to the hospital and was killed when a Viet Cong threw a "chi com" grenade into the truck. I remember him as a friend and always helpful Marine.
