    Forgot to post this. But this is in memory of Cpl. Randy Rosacker. On the 23 was the 3 year anniversary of his passing. Only knew him for a short time. He was the Captain of our Football/wrestling teams. But guys like him showed me whats important in life. I haven't forgotten about him and every other troop whose sacrificed their life and continue to put themselves in harms way to defend our home. Honor Randy by remembering him and saying thanks to a service member. God Bless.

    21, of San Diego, California.
    Killed in combat in the vicinity of An Nasiriyah. He was assigned to the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment, 2nd Marine Expeditionary Brigade, Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. Died on March 23, 2003.

    His father, Rod, a Navy submariner, wanted Rosacker to go to college; instead he joined the Marines. "I couldn't stop him," Rod Rosacker says. "I guess my son liked the life he saw me live." Rod and his son both shipped out at the same time in January; the father got back home just in time to hear the terrible news.

    If I ever go to war Mom,
    Please don’t be afraid,
    There are some things I must do,
    To keep the promise I made.
    I’m sure there will be some heartache,
    And I know that you’ll cry tears,
    But your son is a Marine now; Mom,
    There is nothing you should fear.

    If I ever go to war my Friends,
    We’ll never be apart,
    Though we may not meet again,
    I’ll hold you in my heart.
    Remember all the times we had,
    Don’t let your memories cease,
    Your friend is a Marine now, Dear Friend,
    And I’ll die to bring you peace.

    And when I go to heaven,
    And I see that pearly gate,
    I’ll gladly decline entrance,
    Then stand my post and wait.
    I’m sorry Sir I can’t come in,
    I’m sort of in a bind,
    You see I’m still a Marine Sir,
    So I can’t leave them behind.
