    Another Marine Down

    I was just notifed that Ray Garland, USMC has passed away. He was 96 years old, and was stationed on board one of the other battleships (if I recall correctly, it was either the Nevada or the Tennessee, but not sure) moored at Pearl Harbor on December 7th, 1941.

    He was a member of the Pappy Boyington Detachment, Marine Corps League, Coeur d'Alene, Idaho.

    Rest in Peace, my brother. We have the watch.

    RIP Sir!
    If you know the enemy and know yourself, you need not fear the result of a hundred battles. If you know yourself but not the enemy, for every victory gained you will also suffer a defeat. If you know neither the enemy nor yourself, you will succumb in every battle.”
