Navy John C. Davis
By Dr. John W. Brent Stancil, Groves, Texas
He never spoke much about his days in the Navy, but he was a hero in another way. After he got out of the service he met a young widow with a little girl. The husband had been killed when the baby was only six months old. This hero married the widow and became a wonderful father to not only the little girl but three other children as well. In time he also became a wonderful pawpaw to me, my sisters, and all our cousins. It has been a couple of years since cancer took him, but death is not the end for a Christian and I look forward to seeing him again one day. He may have not been a hero during the war but he sure was one after it for my mom and mawmaw!

By Marilyn Smith-Dougals, Fulton, AR USA
You were my loving husband and most important the best friend I or anyone could ask for.
God looked around His garden
and found an empty place,
for a special Marine.
He then looked down upon the earth and saw your weary face.
He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest.
He saw the road was getting rough, and the hills were hard to climb,
So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered, "Peace Be Thine."

A cook at a base camp near Hue.

Bob was diagnosed with non-hodgkin's lymphoma in Sept.'97 and died Feb.19,'99. We found out that his cancer was service connected just six weeks before his unexpected death. The medical community does not know of all the diseases and cancers related to Agent Orange and Vietnam military service. We were married for 27 years and our two sons and I miss him so. But, I continue to share his story and his life is still having a ripple affect in people's lives, especially Veterans and widows. Through our Agent Orange Widows Awareness Coalition, a national awareness campaign is outreaching to veterans and their families and making an positive impact. For more information, check out Bob's spirit lives on!

By Dorothe Dowell-Welch, Valley Park, Missouri
My father was always a Marine, always my hero. He died on January 8, 1998 at 1630 hours. He was diagnosed with metastatic liver cancer two months and one day prior. He referred to his cancer as "Kilroy", and only I, his brother and his three male cousins knew what he meant. (His brother and cousins are also WWII Vets.) But he lived like a Marine, and died like a Marine. Always Faithful. Semper Fidelis!!! I love you Daddy. Your third daughter, Dot.

MarinesRichard Alan Dudek
By Denise L. Cruickshank (Patch), Inkster; Davisburg, MI USA
I was only 14 years old when a friend was taken away by a cruel and selfish war.... The Vietnam War. I remember a very kind man that would take the time to make the 'kids' on our block feel important by taking the time to gather us all together to play baseball in the field. Richard is only a memory in my mind since I don't remember his face or his voice..... I only remember his memory. Richard was also a very nice looking man, which complimented his personality well. I hope that he found comfort with our Lord when he died in Vietnam in 1968, and that his unselfish efforts found favor with Him also. I pray he is enjoying eternal happiness and that one day I will see him again. I too am a Christian and know the 'mystery' of Christ! If anyone knew Richard from Michigan, please feel free to contact me with any news of him you may have. In Christian Love....... Denise L. Cruickshank.

MarinesJason L. Dunham (Iraq)
By A Grateful Nation
Rank and Organization: Corporal, United States Marine Corps
For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving as Rifle Squad Leader, 4th Platoon, Company K, Third Battalion, Seventh Marines (Reinforced), Regimental Combat Team 7, First Marine Division (Reinforced), on 14 April 2004. Corporal Dunham's squad was conducting a reconnaissance mission in the town of Karabilah, Iraq, when they heard rocket-propelled grenade and small arms fire erupt approximately two kilometers to the west. Corporal Dunham led his Combined Anti-Armor Team towards the engagement to provide fire support to their Battalion Commander's convoy, which had been ambushed as it was traveling to Camp Husaybah. As Corporal Dunham and his Marines advanced, they quickly began to receive enemy fire. Corporal Dunham ordered his squad to dismount their vehicles and led one of his fire teams on foot several blocks south of the ambushed convoy. Discovering seven Iraqi vehicles in a column attempting to depart, Corporal Dunham and his team stopped the vehicles to search them for weapons. As they approached the vehicles, an insurgent leaped out and attacked Corporal Dunham. Corporal Dunham wrestled the insurgent to the ground and in the ensuing struggle saw the insurgent release a grenade. Corporal Dunham immediately alerted his fellow Marines to the threat. Aware of the imminent danger and without hesitation, Corporal Dunham covered the grenade with his helmet and body, bearing the brunt of the explosion and shielding his Marines from the blast. In an ultimate and selfless act of bravery in which he was mortally wounded, he saved the lives of at least two fellow Marines. By his undaunted courage, intrepid fighting spirit, and unwavering devotion to duty, Corporal Dunham gallantly gave his life for his country, thereby reflecting great credit upon himself and upholding the highest traditions of the Marine Corps and the United States Naval Service.
