My brother Marine who I served with at Marine Corps Air Station, " MCAS " Beaufort SC from 1981 to 1984 and became a Sheriff Deputy after leaving the Corps was killed this month 23 years ago this month. He was an outstanding Marine and heavy equipment repairman in our maintenance shop. I remember good times as our Det B, FSSG softball team won as Base Champions, also played football on the bases intramural league. We had a big laugh while, as roommates in 84, we both had our eyes on a hot, female Sergeant from the admin section, I got turned down for a date, he got stood up by her on the same weekend, LOL. We also may have been involved in a 7 round barracks fist fight back in 1982," oppps, I'll call it a draw but he may have won a unanimous decision ".
I was very sad to here he had died, while on duty, he was an outstanding person, and by all accounts, an outstanding cop. He is missed.
To his family and fellow Law Enforcement Officers, My heart goes out to you.
SEMPER FI my brother, see you on the other side. ((( SALUTING ))).
