"Land of the free ... because of the brave!"

New York Spectator. August 23, 1831

“The court of common pleas of Chester county, [New York] rejected a witness who declared his disbelief in the existence of God. The presiding judge remarked that he had not before been aware that there was a man living who did not believe in the existence of God; that this belief constituted the sanction of all testimony in a court of justice: and that he knew of no cause in a Christian country where a witness had been permitted to testify without such belief.

  "Some people live an entire life time and wonder if they every made a difference in the world....but Marines don't have that problem!"

 

The Honorable Ronald Reagan, President of the United States Of America

United States Marine Corps Honorable Discharge



A LETTER FROM BOOT CAMP....

 
Dear Ma and Pa,

I am well. Hope you are. Tell Brother Walt and Brother Elmer the Marine Corps beats working for old man Minch by a mile. Tell them to join up quick before all of the places are filled.



I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m. but I am getting so I like to sleep late. Tell Walt and Elmer all you do before breakfast is smooth your cot, and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay. Practically nothing.

We all have to shave but it is not so bad, there's warm water & no out house!
 
Breakfast is strong on trimmings like fruit juice, cereal, eggs, bacon, fruit,etc., but kind of weak on chops, potatoes, ham, steak, fried eggplant, pie and other regular food. Tell Walt and Elmer you can always sit by the two city boys that live on coffee. Their food plus yours holds you until noon when you get fed again. It's no wonder these city boys can't walk much.

We go on "route marches," which the platoon sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it's not my place to tell him different. A "route march" is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city guys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

The country is nice but awful flat. The sergeant is like a school teacher. He nags a lot. The Captain is like the school board. Majors and colonels just ride around and frown. They don't bother you none.



This next one will kill Walt and Elmer with laughter... I keep getting medals for shooting & I don't know why. The bulls-eye is near as big as a chipmunk's head and don't move, and it ain't shooting at you like the Higgett boys at home. All you got to do is lie there all comfortable and hit it. You don't even load your own cartridges. They come in boxes.

Then we have what they call hand-to-hand combat training. You get to wrestle with them city boys. I have to be real careful though, they break real easy. It ain't like fighting with that ole bull at home. I'm about the best they got in this except for that Tug Jordan from over in Silver Lake. I only beat him once. He joined up the same time as me, but I'm only 5'6" and 130 pounds and he's 6'8" and near 300 pounds dry.


Be sure to tell Walt and Elmer to hurry and join before other fellers get onto this setup and come stampeding in.

Your loving daughter, Stephanie Marie

Cemetery Escort Duty

WARNING....DO NOT READ.....YOUR MONITOR WILL TEAR UP!

I just wanted to get the day over with and go down to Smokey's. Sneaking a look at my watch, I saw the time, 1655. Five minutes to go before the cemetery gates are closed for the day. Full dress was hot in the August sun.  Oklahoma summertime was as bad
as ever--the heat and humidity at the same level--both too high. 

I saw the car pull into the drive, '69 or '70 model Cadillac Deville, looked factory-new. It pulled into the parking lot at a snail's pace. An old woman got out so slow I thought she was paralyzed; she had a cane and a sheaf of flowers--about four or five bunches as best I could tell. 

I couldn't help myself. The thought came unwanted, and left a slightly bitter taste: 'She's going to spend an hour, and for this old Marine, my hip hurts like hell and I'm ready to get out of here right now!' But for this day, my duty was to assist anyone coming in. 

Kevin would lock the 'In' gate and if I could hurry the old biddy along, we might make it to Smokey's in time. 


I broke post attention. My hip made gritty noises when I took the first step
and the pain went up a notch.  I must have made a real military sight: middle-aged man with a small pot gut and half a limp, in Marine full-dress uniform, which had lost its razor crease about thirty minutes after I began the watch at the cemetery. 

I stopped in front of her, halfway up the walk. She looked up at me with an old woman's squint. 

'Ma'am,may I assist you in any way?

She took long enough to answer. 

'Yes, son. Can you carry these flowers? I seem to be moving a tad slow these days.'

'My pleasure, ma'am.'
Well, it wasn't too much of a lie. 

She looked again. 'Marine, where were you stationed?

Vietnam, ma'am. Ground-pounder. '69 to '71.

She looked at me closer. 'Wounded in action, I see. Well done, Marine. I'll be as quick as I can.

I lied a little bigger: 'No hurry, ma'am.' 

She smiled and winked at me. 'Son, I'm 85-years-old and I can tell a lie from a long way off. Let's get this done. Might be the last time I can do this. My name's Joanne Wieserman, and I've a few Marines I'd like to see one more time.

'Yes, ma 'am. At your service.


She headed for the World War I section, stopping at a stone. She picked one of the flowers out of my arm and laid it on top of the stone. She murmured something I couldn't quite make out. The name on the marble was Donald S. Davidson, USMC: France 1918

She turned away and made a straight line for the World
War II
section, stopping at one stone. I saw a tear slowly tracking
its way down her cheek. She put a bunch on a stone; the name was 
Stephen X.Davidson, USMC, 1943



She went up the row a ways and laid another bunch on a stone, Stanley
J. Wieserman, USMC, 1944


She paused for a second. 'Two more, son, and we'll be done

I almost didn't say anything, but, 'Yes, ma'am. Take your time.' 

She looked confused. 'Where's the Vietnam section, son? I seem to have lost my way.


I pointed with my chin. 'That way, ma'am.' 

'Oh!' she chuckled quietly. 'Son, me and old age ain't too friendly.

She headed down the walk I'd pointed at. She stopped at a couple of stones before she found the ones she wanted. She placed a bunch on Larry Wieserman, USMC, 1968,
and the last on 
Darrel Wieserman, USMC, 1970.
She stood there and murmured a few words I still couldn't make out. 

'OK, son, I'm finished. Get me back to my car and you can go home.

Yes, ma'am. If I may ask, were those your kinfolk?

She paused. 'Yes, Donald Davidson
was my father, 
Stephen
was my uncle, 
Stanley
was my husband, 
Larry
and 
Darrel
were our sons. All killed in action, all Marines.
She stopped. Whether she had finished, or couldn't finish, I don't know. She made her way to her car, slowly and painfully. 


I waited for a polite distance to come between us and then double-timed it over to Kevin, waiting by the car. 

'Get to the 'Out' gate quick. I have something I've got to do.

Kevin started to say something, but saw the look I gave him. He broke the rules to get us there down the service road. We beat her. She hadn't made it around the rotunda yet.


'Kevin, stand at attention next to the gatepost. Follow my lead.'
I humped it across the drive to the other post. 


When the Cadillac came puttering around from the hedges and began the short straight traverse to the gate, I called in my best Gunny's voice: 'TehenHut! Present Haaaarms!' 

I have to hand it to Kevin; he never blinked an eye--full dress uniform standing at attention
and a salute that would make his DI proud. 

She drove through that gate with two old worn-out Marines giving her a send-off she deserved, for service rendered to her country, and for knowing duty, honor and sacrifice. 

I am not sure, but I think I saw a salute returned from that Cadillac.

Instead of 'The End,'...just think of 'Taps.


As a final thought on my part, let me share a favorite prayer: 'Lord,
keep our servicemen and women safe, whether they serve at home or overseas.
Hold them in your loving hands and protect them as they protect us.

Let's all keep those currently serving and those who have gone before in our thoughts. They are the reason for the many freedoms we enjoy. 

'In God We Trust.' 

Sorry about your monitor; it made mine blurry too! 

"If we ever forget that we're one nation under God, then we will be a nation gone under!"
