On this 70th Anniversary (2019) of your EOW, Marlin know that you will NEVER be forgotten by this family. Marlin was a distant cousin to me. My Great-Grandmother Jewell, also a long-time Long Beach resident, was his cousin. My Great-Great Grandfather Charles Evans of Arkansas, was his uncle. My family has told me the story of Marlin many times, and we have honored his sacrifice over these many years. May God Bless you Marlin and your descendants for your service and sacrifice!
