Lejeune Families finally getting help

It has been two years since Congress passed the Honoring America’s Veterans and Caring for Camp Lejeune Families Act. That act provided health-care coverage for military family members sickened by water pollution aboard Camp Lejeune over a 30-year period.

It has taken two years before the law could be put into effect. The lag time between the passage of the law and approval of rules governing coverage is yet another symptom of the dysfunction within the Veterans Administration, and an apparent lack of urgency on the part of the White House agency that reviews rules before they become final.

Vietnam Wall

This is a truly amazing web site.  It took someone a great deal of time and effort to create it.  I found it sobering. First select a state, then you can select by city to view a list of those that paid the ultimate price.  Select the name & you will view the details of the person's death, a picture or at lest their bio & medals.  

I hope that everyone who reviews this will appreciate the sacrifices of those who served in this war and the sacrifices they made for this great country.

Retired Old Marines Eating Out (ROMEO) Unit #1 of New York City recently gathered to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the invasion and battle of Iwo Jima.  The purpose of this gathering was to enjoy a meal, grog, and sea stories and most importantly, remember our brother Marines from the “Greatest Generation.” Their courage and determination has been the standard by which our Corps has judged itself since February 1945.


Left to Right: Joe Lisi, Angelo Ciota (GOH) Iwo Jima Survivor G-2-28, Vincenzo Cerbone - USA & Manducatis Owner


All that gathered enjoyed the evening and remembered our fallen Marines who paid the ultimate sacrifice.  God - Country - Corps!!!!
