Ethan’s Plans

Ethan’s Plans
by Ethan Mroz

Last week, my nephew perished from a drowning accident on Lake Michigan. He put his life on the line by first saving his girlfriend from a riptide.

Unfortunately, both he and his grandfather ? my brother in lawlost their lives.

Ethan was 16 years old and counting the days until he could join the Marines. He kept a notebook describing all his Marine plans. He often spoke to me about Viet Nam and to two other Marine war veterans from Afghanistan and Korea.

Ethan was somewhat the poet and wrote the paragraph attached below. I wonder if any of you saw this before. We are trying to verifyso far I have not come up with anything from the Corp that this ever existed.
