Jon, Sorry to hear another is gone. I feel quite honored and blessed to have grown up knowing so many of these men. I noticed that a Marine who had posted to TOTW, Jerry Wachsmuth, had passed earlier this year as well. My dad served with him on the USS Pennsylvania and Jerry was, I believe, in the 2/6 at Tarawa. They truly were the greatest generation....

        Like all Tarawa vets, my dad met him at The Gate to Heaven with a cold beer!
