My son David and Chad recieved the (NAM) medal NAVY AND MARINE,we still don’t know what they did,but we do know that both of them had volunteered to be coptered around Iraq to pick up the belongings of fallen Marines,well over 70 missions,I wanted to share this with your readers,we are so proud of all of our men and women,to all the members of the 3/6,welcome home,you are all heroes to all of us,SEMPER FI.JOB WELL DONE
