When I get to heaven,
To Saint Peter I will tell,
Another Marine reporting for duty, Sir
I've served my time in Hell.

If the Army or Navy
Ever gaze on Heaven's Scenes
They will find the streets are guarded
By United States Marines.

5 year anniverssary of an ultimate sacrifice.

While I never knew Patrick, but having past the torch many many moons ago, I knew CORPORAL Nixon.

Rest in peace now, my brother.
And know, that what you gave the Iraqi people, is a chance at a better world. You never lived to see the smiles and purple fingers, of a proud people during a free election. One you helped provide.

You are remembered. :iwo:

Semper Fidelis
