I had the honor and the privilege to serve with "Iron" Mike in Vietnam..He was a perfect example of what a Marine is supposed to be. When I checked into my unit, he greeted me and told me not to worry about a thing-I couldn't die unless he gave me written permission. Now he is with the ages-"Old Marines never die, they just go to hell and regroup!"
