Lt. MacGeary,

I wanted to take this opportunity to say THANK YOU for your sacrifice and that it was not in vain. I remember you, as I was a plane captain, who frequently strapped you in.

I remember the day you and Major Jacks left us and was deeply saddened by this. The mark of watching this has stayed with me all these years.

Thank you for serving your God, your Country and your Corps. You will never be forgotten.

Semper Fi,
Cpl. "Tiny"
