    These men are very proud of their service, as well they should be. I thank God my Uncle, Al Costa, survived and I was able to grow up with him in our family. He's a precious man. May God bless those families who lost their loved ones as they served us and our country with most honorable lives. Please pray for our past and current soldiers daily.

    True Heros indeed, I spent 15 months on Okinawa, good thing for me it was peace time. I did however see were the fighting took place and can`t begin to imagine how anyone could have servived. It`s been said that the Japanese would fight to the death, no surrender. The Marines took a page out of their book and in order to survive, faught with more killing in mind than the Japanese. The Navy got hit by suicide planes and took a tremendous loss also. To all the brave men. Semper Fi
