    My great-grandfather served in the Marines... was at Belleau Wood - which you Marines (and hopefully some others here) have heard of! And if you have a copy of the Leatherneck magazine this month... his picture is in it too! (Bottom of pg. 62, 9th from the left, bottom row) In the "Until Now" article by Mark E. Ryan about GySgt Fred W. Stockham who won the Congressional Medal of Honor.

    So ... Thanks to all the veterans who have served this country over the years. And Thank You to all the service men and women who are currently serving here and abroad - especially in Iraq and Afghanistan. Thoughts and prayers with you all, today, tomorrow and always.

    I remember being at Edson Range and it being on fire. I can't remember if it was our company that started it or if it was the group 1 week ahead of us. Everything was burnt and black when I was in the field several weeks later.

    Get on google maps and youll find it. I was right next to the chow hall off to the right if you were facing the chow hall. There was a sand pit there but looks like they added a few things where the pit was.

    I was on the second deck, i would try to sleep in my top bunk watching the air craft take off from the air port. Now that sucked.
