I’d like to dedicate this posting to Peter G, who graduated from Marine Corps boot camp with me. After my short term of service, I went on to enjoy the benefits of civilian life– love and marriage, rock concerts, forest hikes, wild parties, foreign travels, dogs and cats. As for Peter, eight months after boot camp, he was killed in a firefight, He was only 19. Now, looking at his photograph, I am deeply saddened and lost for any further words. Peace, brother.
