For CPL Thomas Frank SHANKS, USMC...another of Coraopolis's bravest of heroes, who ghave his all!!!!

He loved us so.


Every day, in a hundred ways, he told us so.


In honesty, in affection, he told us so.


He loved us so.


Every day, in a hundred ways, he showed us so.


With loyalty and bravery, he showed us so.


He was our defender, and he kept us free!


He took an oath to guard us, and fought for liberty!


He loved us so, and we should know.


For we loved him so.


Corporal Shanks, you had given all to defend liberty everywhere! You fought for the right without question or pause! You had been there and done that in Vietnam! You were very brave! I hope that we all will be as brave as you had been! I strongly and honestly believe that Avonmore's own Jill Corey, whom I greatly admire as one of my three top favorite songbirds of all time, the others being England's musical queen, Julie Andrews, and Dusty Springfield, another thrush from England who passed on some years ago, would be very proud of your service to America, and the sacrifices you made to keep us free! Well done, Corporal! Be thou at peace. SEMPER FI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
