52 Years Ago Today

Hey Arn, It’s been 52 years ago today since you left us. I still miss you very much. I’ve been married for almost 49 years and have 3 children, 5 grandchildren, and 2 great grandchildren. Both my sons are Marines, and my oldest grandson is completing 5 years in the Navy as a forward air controller. You would like every one of them. Tomorrow’s Memorial Day but to me every day is Memorial Day. Besides you I have 29 friends on the Wall. Coincidentally one of them, L/Cpl. Mike Murphy, was KIA May 26, 1968. I hope you are with mom and dad and may you all Rest In Peace. Semper Fi, Jim

Semper Fi !!!

Arnold is mistakenly listed as from Spokane, Washington. We lived in Sanford, Florida when he went to Parris Island in 1965. The whole family still lives in Sanford. He was killed on Operation Union II, while serving as a squad leader in Hiep Duc Valley, Quang Tin province.
