Dan Dennis served with the 3rd Battalion, 5th Marines, Mike
Company. He was Killed In Action during Operation UNION. For his heroic
actions trying to save fellow Marines, he was awarded the Silver Star.
His name stands proudly on the Mike 3/5 Wall of Honor
alongside the Marines he fought and died with. Semper fi, Brother
is My Brother
Only the God of
Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, Him to whom your example has, in part, led
me, Dan, knows why; why would such a good, courageous, young lion as
you perish on a foreign field, while I live on to marry a godly woman,
chase success, rear two wonderful girls to maturity and enjoy, in peace,
the blessings of this free and blessed country?
I remember, Dan. I recall the warm embrace of your family's home. And
I remember that, for you, all roads lead to the Anointed One, and all
puzzles will be explained by Him.
Forgive me for having forgotten that your middle name was Michael. The
name of the archangel... May each of our destinies, and that of all
of our beloved, be that of Michael's. Then shall God wipe all of these,
and all of our tears, from our eyes.
I cannot hope to die like you. But I will try to live like you, always
in pursuit of the Truth.~Rudy
husband's best friend
Dan was a fine young
man with wonderful Christian parents. He was my husband's best friend.
Wish we could have seen him middle-aged with us, but we are proud of
his service to our country.~Jean
Dan was a kind,
Christian young man who was taken from his family and friends far too
early, but not before he made an indelible impression on those who knew
him. I knew him as a boy but knew he would become a fine man. The world
lost part of its light when it lost Dan.~Cheryl
