    A Marine, was killed in action last year in Iraq. His first name was Richard.

    Two of the things that made him special to me, and easy to remember, one, he was a BOC member, and two, we shared the same birthday. I know this from reading his profile after Thomas, RiverratSC posted the sad news last year.

    I hit a milestone that Richard will never do. Today I'm 60 yrs old, Richard would have been celebrating one of those birthdays in his very early 20's.

    "HAPPY BIRTHDAY RICHARD"
     
  2. Would be nice if every actively participating member would at least post a small rememberance for our fallen fellow BOC brother. I know how patriotic our BOC family can be, and this would certainly warrant a higher calling by all. Being a fellow Marine as well as Aaron Drier and a few others I have met here, we all know it is never a simple thing to forget when a warrior makes the ultimate sacrifice.
