Rest in Peace, Marine

 

Iwo Jima where uncommon valor was a common virtue. Hershel “Woody” Williams the last WWII veteran who earned the Medal of Honor has passed away.

And when he goes to Heaven,
To St. Peter he will tell:
Another Marine reporting, Sir;
I’ve served my time in hell.

    Here is a painting my father did of the Iwo Jima Memorial about twenty years ago.

    Check out the story on one of the websites, maybe Red State, about the 100 year old vet who got a silver star at Guadacanal. He is not happy about the direction the country is going.  Wonder why.
