I salute you, Sir. You fought and died with honor and dignity in an unpopular war. Though I was never lucky enough to have met you, I love you and you are my hero, Uncle Jack. So I'll see you when I get to Heaven. I know you'll be the one standing Post by the Pearly Gates.
SEMPER FI, MARINE, SEMPER FI!
My Brother, we were separated in this life, but we will meet again.
Love from your sister,
