The Alabama Democrat died yesterday. Not many knew this:
He served as a Marine infantry officer in World War II and earned the Silver Star during the Bougainville campaign and was seriously wounded at Guam.

Need to add this: He was a platoon commander in A-1-9. That touches me because I was in w-2-9 about 10 years later.

Semper Fi and Godspeed Marine! I'll relieve you at the gates when I get orders.
