The database page for Edward Day
Lance Corporal Edward S. Day was my cousin. Unfortunately, I never had the chance to meet him. He was killed in action in 1968 - I was born in 1971. My parents named me after Ed and I followed in his footsteps by enlisting in the USMC as an infantryman in 1989. Today, I am a Marine officer and carry Ed's memory with me. Although we never met I believe he has always been with me, especially when I deployed to places like Liberia, Kuwait, Haiti and Iraq. He protected and guided me, just as he did his fellow Marines at the "Rockpile" in 1968. Semper Fi Marine!
