Subject: [THOMASON] Fw: Incredible WWII Marine Tribute

This tells of the death of Sgt. Clyde Thomason.





In the early days of WW II the Marine raiders attacked Makin Island and left behind 19 dead Marines after asking the islanders to make sure that they received a proper burial. In 1999 the remains were discovered. This is a touching tribute. Semper Fidelis.
