Dave was just reading his latest edition of the Marine Corp. Heritage Foundation Sentinel and your Dad's name is in the TAPS section. He must have been greatly respected by the Marine Corp to be mentioned in their magazine.

Thanks, Anne. That is a very nice accolade. My dad was Director of the Marine Corps Operations Analysis Group for most of the 60s and was in Vietnam for the fall of 1968 with General Ray Davis. General Earl Anderson (4 stars) was at Arlington for the funeral last week. General Anderson was Assistant Commandant back in the early 70s and a close friend of my Dad's. Pretty impressive honor having him at Arlington since he is in his early 90s now!

Thanks for sharing Dave's comment.


Now Dave is impressed.

He was in a group founding Purple Heart for the Eastern Shore and worked with GEN Anderson. Of course, that was years ago.
