If I should die...remembranmces for CAPT. Bernard A. McDERMOTT III, USMC...who died for our country!

If I should die, and leave you here awhile, be not like others, sore undone, who keep long vigils by the silent dust, and weep...for MY sake, turn again to life, and smile...Nerving thy heart, and trembling hand to do something to comfort other hearts than thine...Complete these dear, unfinished tasks of mine...and I, perchance, may therein comfort you.

I was with Him at the End

I barely knew Capt. McDermott at 3rd MP Bn when he was KIA on 9-06-69. I was a L/Cpl assigned to helping Capt. McDermott to an heli-pad for medivac with another Marine when he died. It was a huge mortar/rocket attack. I had only known him 2-3 weeks after his arrival at 3rd MP's. He got a few of us interested in Karate as a means to help keep us in shape. Although I knew little about him because he was new and I was an enlisted man, but he had good character and saw the good in his fellow Marines. This has been difficult and emotional to re-visit. I wanted to contact his Family.

He Lives Eternal

On June 26, 1969, Ben and I married in the Chapel at Camp Pendleton, CA. Within 10 weeks he was killed by mortar fire during his third tour. I thank God for having my life touched by a man of such great honor and integrity, strong character, and enduring patriotism. And yes, my life was forever changed but he lives eternal in my heart. We will meet again someday - of this I am sure! Always, Sandra
