    jmboykin I thought what you said was a fitting Gesture of Appreciation and heartfelt sympathy. I to wish the same for the family and salute Petty Officer Lundy for what he has given to all who call themselves Americans. As to the comment from lineOFDuty with respect to rank earned, time of service, branch, Unit and words toward his fellow Marine. I dont believe the Corp taught you to step on a fellow Americans Gesture of Appreciation if they are sincere in their words and having read it a few times I believe that it is as Sincere as one can get. Take care all and God Bless American.

    LineOfDuty, your reply to jmboykin was out of line. I strongly believe that jmboykin was just showing appreciation for the corpsman and his service to the country and it should be left at that.

    jmboykin ... there are no 'fellow soldiers' of this Petty Officer, they are 'Marines'. As I too were a corpsman in the 5th Marines we'd most certainly get our hand slapped for that.

    fair winds and following seas !! semper fi my brother in arms.
