Sgt. Grit

On Memorial Day 2009, the little town of Florence, Oregon dedicated our Veteran's Memorial Park. This was a project that started over 5 years ago and finally became a reality. I included a picture of the ceremony as well as one of the panel of bricks which are engraved with names of veterans. Also pictured are some of the people responsible for making it happen. 3rd MarDiv vets Terry Robertson C/2/26, 1st Sgt. Tony Cavarno, and fellow corpsman Dean Hirst A/1/9.

Can't forget former 3rd Recon Marine Wally Shoults and Mustang Marine Maj. Nick Ostreyko (who will be 92 years old in a couple of weeks and is the only one of us that still fits in his uniform).
