Still think about you now and then.That song was just on my radio,found myself all teared up thinking about 1969 and all the things I see in my mind but can't remember the names that go with them. I remember our trip out to the bush and me getting off the chopper at Fox Co. Like you said then,,See ya soon bro. Semper Fi my Brother

Hi Bruce. Time goes on my friend and I find myself reflecting on the times we hurt. We did hurt at times and I vividly remember the times you picked me up. See ya soon old buddy.

Baby San. Dropped by to see you old friend. I need to tell you I was in New Orleans for the Fox 2/5 reunion in September. You'll remember some of the guys like Kosi,Purdue.Piscitelli and Blasko. I remember when you would come over to the Fox Co area to see me you always wound up telling them stories about me and you in boot camp. It would be nice to see you old buddy,but I will be patient and see what the Lord has in store for me. SEMPER FI my friend and blessings be upon your family. Crutch

Another year passed without you baby. 7 years since ive felt your arms around me and looked into those blue eyes. Seems like yesterday even that minute I heard you were gone. I try to be grateful for the time we had together, the first real love of my life. But I still cant grasp why god took something away I waited so long to find. I know your waiting though and one day we will be together to finish our dance. Until then, not a day goes by that I don't think about you. Semper Fi my love, stay close

Time flys and I'm still kicking ol buddy. Think often of the times we had together. From today til May next year,we would both be 67 and to think what we survived makes me know we were blessed. Carry on Marine,and I will see you shortly. God care for your family.

Bruce you were a wonderful, caring gentle man. You brought joy to many I'm sure. Thank you for bringing so much happiness into Barbara's life. Even though it was a short time, in the moments you both experienced something so beautiful and precious. Something one cannot buy. That is unconditional true love. God bless you Bruce. Continue to watch over sis
You are greatly missed

I was in boot camp with Bruce. We served at AnHoa combat base in Vietnam. I was in Fox and he was in golf or maybe Echo Co. we did some operations together in the Arizona until I was medevaced in Sept 69. He was a good Marine,better person.Hated to see this.

had the pleasure of talking with your nephew, travis, he searched you and found this sight so i emailed him.and added him as a friend on facebook so he could see all the pictures and videos of you. also added him to your memorial page. Your niece,, his sister , sent him your leather vest, minus all the patches but he says he wears it all the time. im trying to see who has the patches becaz he would like to have them. I explained the combat vets patch went back to the club, but he would like the rest. I will do my best to get them for him. he loves and misses you very much and i was thrilled to have contact with him. he rides a bike too and your brother mike bought a dyno harley! please ride with them and protect them as i know you already are doing! you are in my heart and soul forever Bruce, i miss you every day. Semper-Fi my love Barb
