U. S. Marine Combat Platoon Leader and amazing guy

We served together when you joined the advance force of the 4th CAG. You were the most talented, creative and focused Marine I ever knew. Calling you an administrative Marine is a major disservice. You played a role in the entire direction of the Combined Action Program. You were a personal friend of General Louis Walt, the creator of the program, who came to the field and spent the night with your platoon, learning. You were a leader beyond your rank and years and helped make everyone around you, better. You were a courageous combat leader, who lead from the front.
Sherriff Nasty forever!!

The Rose Garden with Jeffery Bruce

Dearest Jeffery,
As I see you thru the kitchen window walking through our rose garden in Eagle Rock California, I worried about you leaving to that far off war. You were deep in thought trying to look calm and confident. I thought you were so handsome and smart. I went outside to bring you lemonade and you seemed on edge, then that big smile of yours finally broke out.
My Uncle cried on the phone when he called to tell us the news of your death and the look of strength on your Dads face when you came home for burial. You will always remain in my heart as my handsome summer friend. Miss you so much! I still have a dried rose from the flowers you sent me when you deployed. Love, Maureen

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 sunlight 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.

Sad Coincidence

I was 5 months older than Jeffery and when recently in Highland Park in Rochester NY observing the bollards honoring the fallen, Jeff’s made me stop in my tracks as I also was in Vietnam in 1969 and sadly as I was celebrating my 21st Birthday Jeff lost his life on 10 February 69. Though we never met, I think of him often and it saddens me for all he missed in life. Please RIP
