The world is a better place because of his service to our God, Country, and Corps. FWIW, your grandfather is a hero to me. My condolences to you and your family. "...If the Army and the Navy ever look on Heavens scenes. They will find the streets are guarded by the UNITED STATES MARINES!"

My most sincerest condolences on the passing of your grandfather. My grandfather is still, happily, alive. He served with the Army in WW II, and stormed Anzio. It will be a sad day for me to see him go. My heart goes out to you and your family.

Sorry to hear of your loss but I'm sure St. Pete appreciates the fact that the Pearly Gates are a little more secure tonight.

I am sure the Marines Guarding Heavens gates are looking down and feeling our call to arms all the way up there. God knows I am. *A man in Dress Blues keeps eagerly looking downward as he watches his nation prepare and girde for war, Although in Heaven, the urge tugs at his very soul. He sees his colors waving across the Land and he knows that danger is near his nation. He keeps looking questioningly at St. Pete. St. Pete walks over and brushes the soldiers cheek and smiles knowingly. A tear runs down the Marines cheek. Just one, for his Nation, for himself not being able to go, for his knowledge that others are comming.* *The Green Beret is sitting there just sharpening his sickle for his job is to seperate the Wheat from the Chaff. Part of those who come will be sent to hell where they belong* You know you read revelations and you realize that our enemies call us the great satan and give us great role in that book of the Bible as they say we are the ones the lord is comming for. But we have not done those things that they have done. They are so arrogant they havn't stopped to realize that We the USA are merely one of the Lords Trumpets that his Angels will play on the day of reconing. Benjamin
