Taps
(A list of our Brothers who have died since returning)
Last revision, 16 AUGUST 2017



I'm a Helicopter Crewman, Don't Cry For Me

Don't grieve for me, I've returned to base.
To join my fellow Marines - at the Holy place.

My life's been full, I savored much,
Good friends, and laughs, A loved one's touch.

You can wear your flightsuits, fly a hop each day,
It's a pretty nice place, So I think I'll stay.

I've seen a few who went before me,
The guys from Vietnam are here,
So brave, so young we were back then

I still can shed a tear,
But we're United States Marines,
And there is nothing that we fear.

Oh, … God said the devil is still looking for "Jane",
And yes, I did get to see John Wayne.

So if you happen to get "the calling", And you're at the pearly gate,
Remember to listen for those rotors, And look for a squadron mate.

Mrs. "Windy" Paula Page

Note: Major Doug Page, USMC(Ret), died in January 1999 from the after-effects of
Agent Orange. He served in Vietnam with VMO-2 and VMO-6
