Things happen so fast in this world of ours. I remember crossing paths with Alec in the dining facility on Camp Leatherneck in Afghanistan about a month ago. We spoke briefly and chatted about our families and how each of us were doing. I was his recruiter, SSgt Green at the time. I picked Alec right out of the crowd, because of that memorable smile that he always had. I remember the last words we said to eachother was to be safe and get back home to our families. Alec wanted to be a Marine...he was a Marine....and always will be a Marine. When I sat down with him for his initial interview about why he wanted to be a Marine....he told me for the pride of belonging, the brotherhood....to do something that everyone else couldn't do....he said he wanted to stand that watch and to serve our Country with honor. Alec did just that....although he is gone in the physical form, he is still with us in spirit...guarding heaven's gate....still standing the watch. Alec was a great person....and awesome Marine. It was an honor to help him accomplish one of his life-long dreams. Alec....Devil Dog...Marine, you are gone but will never be forgotten....see you on the otherside brother...my Marines and I will sleep safely at night knowing you are still standing the watch over us...Semper Fidelis Marine.

I have heard the the endless roar of jets at Linburgh Field. Heard the rush of the freeway traffic. Heard "Aye Sir" in the warm afternoon of a MCRD San Diego sun. The endless chipping of the finches on the parade deck. I know those sights and sounds Marine. Semper Fi Terwiske
