My friend, my teammate and fellow Marine
Bruce graduated from Barstow High in 1963.We met on the football team where he was an outstanding example to us under classmen.He was a fierce competitor but a gentleman is the truest sense.I never saw him down.He was one of many great examples that caused me to also join the Corps in 66.Those early friendships formed in teenage years can never be replaced! I miss you friend and Semper Fi! Thank you for protecting our nation.Those that have followed you have served with honor and distinction and will continue to do so.
